loads.in gives you the possibility to see how fast your (or any) website loads in a real browser from over 50 locations worldwide.
If you have a worldwide audience, or your site is hosted in a different country from where your visitors live, it is useful to see how long it takes to load your web pages. With loads.in you simply enter the full URL of the page you want to check, and the page is retreived by a browser at a random location. For each subsequent check you can choose a specific location and browser profile.
As a result you will be presented with:
- The load time of the web page.
- Snapshots of the webpage at different times during load.
- Errors or warnings if they occur.
- A complete timing break down of all elements of your page in a waterfall chart.
- The possibility to download the timing results in the Http Archive (HAR) format.
loads.in is a unique and free tool:
- Checks your site with real browsers.
- Choose from Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer or FireFox browser profiles.
- Checks your site from over 50 locations.
- Provides snapshots and waterfall charts for each check.

CSS3Warp is a proof of concept: create Illustrator like “warped” text (text following an irregular path) with pure CSS and HTML.
How does it work?
CSS3 brings new text-transform options: rotation, skew, matrix, transform-origin… By applying the right transformations to every single letter it is possible to create the illusion of text following a path.
Type your text into the webform, click “Warp it!”, then alter the path as you like. You can attach your text to a circle or a bezier. Add or delete points, or change position, angle and radius of the circle. When your done, click “Generate code”. Copy the CSS and HTML into your document.
