When it comes to measuring user experience, not all web performance metrics are created equal. SpeedCurve lets you focus on the most important metrics to help you understand and improve your user experience. Then it gives you awesome, easy-to-understand visuals to share with your teams.
SpeedCurve synthetic monitoring is built on top of WebPageTest, which is widely considered to be the best synthetic performance testing tool available. While WebPageTest is great for running one-off tests, it doesn’t support testing multiple sites on a continuous basis. WebPageTest also doesn’t support tracking and analyzing separate results. This is where SpeedCurve comes in.
“It's WebPageTest to a whole new level! Runs tests continuously and focuses the team on user-centric metrics.”
Our global test agents let you test continuously around the world, on the most popular mobile and desktop browsers. And yes, you can even test special pages such as PWAs, pages that require authentication, and private dev and staging sites.
Knowing which of your competitors are faster than you is a fantastic way to get performance buy-in throughout your organization. Here's how to use SpeedCurve to compare your performance with any other site. (Bonus: It's super easy to set up! Extra bonus: You can also generate great visualizations – like side-by-side videos and filmstrips – to share with your team.)
In addition to standard web performance metrics (such as backend, start render, visually complete, Speed Index, Page Speed score, first meaningful paint, first interactive), you can also track unique-to-SpeedCurve metrics – such as Hero Rendering Times – that correlate to how users experience the speed of your site. SpeedCurve also supports custom metrics via the User Timing spec
Performance budgets are a vital tool that helps the team (everybody - marketing, designers and developers) agreeing on how fast the website should feel.
They take the hassle out of monitoring your pages by notifying you (by email, Slack, HipChat, or webhook) whenever your metrics cross a certain threshold.
As mobile and tablet use increases, it’s important that you understand how your site performs across a wide range of devices. SpeedCurve's dashboards provide the answers, not just in numbers, but with video and filmstrips that show rendering performance and CPU analysis that highlights interaction delays.
The scripts and stylesheets that come with ads, analytics, and social widgets often aren't delivered in a performant way – which can block the main content on the page from ever being seen by your users.
Keep the development of your site on track with automated, continuous feedback on your performance pipeline. Use our API to compare deployments and any performance regressions or budget violations are flagged, ensuring that you're able to fix performance problems before they reach production.
You know your site better than we do. By building custom charts, you can track the metrics that are most important to you. There’s no limit to the number of charts you can build, and the number of separate dashboards you can house them in. Which brings us to...
Your technical team wants charts that help them go deep with performance issues. Your executive team wants high-level charts that focus on the metrics they care about. SpeedCurve lets you tailor different dashboards for different stakeholders and send weekly emails so that people only see the charts and data they need to see.
