While you may develop your website on a fast network connection at home or at work, your users may not be able to use it with an equally fast connection. Perhaps they're in a moving car, or on the subway, or they don't have access to high-speed internet at their place. Whatever it is, they may experience your site very differently than you do because of this.
Testing your site with a slower connection helps you understand how it loads and appears on the screen.
Firefox, Chrome and Edge let you simulate slower network connections to do this.
To throttle your connection:
- Go to the Network tool.
- Use the dropdown that says
No throttlingand choose any of the other values.
You can also do this from the device simulation mode by using the same dropdown there.
- Open the Emulation options.
- Go to the Network tab.
- Toggle between the different network speed settings
