Google and Yahoo! rightly put emphasis on the speed of web pages. With the Online Page Speed Tool you can enter a web page URL and it will display an overview (as well as technical information) on the speed of the page for visitors.
As search engines put more weight behind speed optimisation, due to it being a metric that can't be cheated, it is emerging as a more important factor in search engine rankings and will continue to do so. A fast website that has measures in place to make it as quick as possible shows care and professionalism on the developers part.
With numerous database, SSH, SFTP, online accounts and other typical day-to-day account tasks the need for unique and strong passwords is paramount. Thinking up secure and random passwords yourself is a difficult task! This tool has been converted to be publicly usable as a web tool for easy, but customisable, password generation.
The User Information Tool allows clients to easily view some technical information we might need that can otherwise be difficult to attain. It displays information such as the users browser, ip address and operating system. This helps us when it comes to debugging and other support related tasks.
