Sponsor: Zoompf

Thanks to week’s Six Colors feed sponsor, Zoompf. Zoompf builds software to help websites go faster.

They just launched a new, free product in public beta: Zoompf Alerts. Zoompf Alerts continuously analyzes your website for the common causes of slow performance, notifying you when changes introduce new performance defects. While other products just monitor how fast your page loads, Zoompf Alerts analyzes your website’s content and configuration to pinpoint the root causes of slow performance. If you care about UX, you should check out Zoompf.

Just this morning I found a mistake on The Incomparable’s site that was causing too-large images to load and not be cached, which I was able to fix with a few tweaks, thanks to a Zoompf Alert.

All Six Colors readers can join the Zoompf Alerts beta now.
