News Web page performance tool from Google

Page Speed that is a fully open source performance Firebug plugin. It’s a Firefox Add-on integrated with Firebug. When you run Page Speed, you get immediate suggestions on how you can change your web pages to improve their speed. For example, Page Speed automatically optimizes images for you, giving you a compressed image that you can use immediately on your web site. It also identifies issues such as JavaScript and CSS loaded by your page that wasn’t actually used to display the page, which can help reduce time your users spend waiting for the page to download and display.

People will obviously compare it to YSlow (I wish they called it GFast ;) but the main advantages is that: sometimes it will do the work to optimize the page for you!

A must have performance tool to add to your eWallet.
