The first step in improving performance is measuring performance. The last few years have witnessed the birth of numerous performance tools including Firebug, YSlow, Page Speed, HttpWatch, Speed Tracer, dynaTrace, WebPagetest, Web Inspector, and Chrome Dev Tools. But none of these tools measure mobile performance. Although the offering for mobile performance tools is small, some do exist. Join Steve Souders as he shows what’s available today for gaining visibility into mobile performance.
