Page Speed is an open source Firebug add-on that gives suggestions on how to improve web page performance. In this talk, we describe the open development model that we have adopted for Page Speed and the importance of decreasing latency to make web applications more responsive.
We also mention upcoming features such as paint events and screen snapshots in the Activity Panel and early success stories with using Page Speed.
