Ok, I need to test the speed of my solution in a web browser, but I have some problems, there are 2 versions of the web solution, the original one that is on server A and the "fixed" version that is on server B.

I have VS2010 Ultimate, so I can make a web and load test on solution B, but I can't load the A solution on my IDE.

I was trying to use fiddle2 and jmeter, but they only gave me the times of the request and response of the browsers with the server, I also want the time it takes to the browser to render the whole page.

Maybe I'm misusing some of this tools...

I don't know if this could be usefull but:

  • Solution A is on VB 6.0
  • Solution B is on VB.Net

Thanks in advance!

@devnull, Network and Timeline in Chrome is going to be helpful. That was the things that i wanted to sya. – Yusubov Jul 3 '12 at 11:35
Have you tried YSlow (by yahoo) and PageSpeed (by google)? They are browser extensions you can install! – niels Jul 21 '12 at 9:11

The best answer I can suggest is: Selenium. It is available for Chrome, Firefox, and IE. It can even generate test cases that can be automated by VSTS. You can also create a farm of browser test automation machines to execute the tests.

Good tools for checking website speed and identifying slow areas are YSlow and PageSpeed. Neither integrate with the IDE but they give you good feedback.
