There are a few tools that make it much easier to design websites for low bandwidth.
- Page analysers will measure the size of your web pages, not just the HTML but also any images, style sheets and scripting files that are part of your page. These are a great place to start to see how well your pages would perform over low bandwidth connections.
- Bandwidth simulators will show you how your site would look over a low bandwidth connection by temporarily restricting your bandwidth.
We have collected links to the most useful tools on our Tools page, where we discuss each tool in a bit more detail.
