Testing your own site's loading time doesn't need much more than a stopwatch, but if you want to see how your site measures up against rivals, Webslug could be a handy option. T he concept is simple: enter two site URLs, hit the compare button, and Webslug loads each site in turn and measures how long it takes until they've finished. Results of tests are archived, which means the figures should become more meaningful over time. For the moment, it's an interesting rough-and-ready guide to site performance (and a potential Monday morning time sink, I have to say). Thanks Kimble!
