Trusted for years by users and companies around the world to power millions of performance tests and build great user experiences on the web

One of the cool features of WebPageTest is that it can generate a filmstrip ofscreen snapshots taken during a web page load, enabling us to quantify how a page loads, visually. This view makes it significantly easier to determine how on the page is blank for, and how long it takes for the most important content to render.
Being able to look at the results in this way, provides the ability to empathize with the user
Snyk uses WebPageTest to perform 3rd party library detection and vulnerability scanning that reveals potential security vulnerabilities in your website pages.
The best professional web performance investigators I know use WPT as a criticalpart of their workflows, and it's the center of mine.
WebPage Test measures web performance metrics in real browsers, is highly programmable, and could scale to test millions of sites per day

WebPageTest provides a robust toolkit for developers to easily test web performance
and quickly identify bottlenecks across a wide range of browser, browsers connection speeds and more for users around the globe.

Straightforward Visualizations

Performance replay that gets to the point

See exactly how a page's performance metrics get rendered onscreen by toggling between film strips and video capture for both single and side-by-side comparison test results.

How do you define a test run?  What metrics can I access with the API?

A test run on WebPageTest is defined as a single run within a test set up to measure webpage performance on a specific browser and location. For example, if you run a 5-run test with Repeat View, then that counts as 10 test runs.

You can access all the performance metrics that you would when you run a manual test on WebPageTest listed here. Including the film strip view as well as video capture. WebPageTest API also gives you additional metrics you get in JSON/XML.

What countries and browsers do you support with the WebPageTest API?

With WebPageTest API, you can test across 30 locations worldwide, including mainland China.  

WebPageTest API is always up-to-date on the current version of every browser and you can test on Chrome (stable, beta, canary), Firefox (stable, beta, ESR), Microsoft Edge (dev) and Brave.  

WebPageTest API also supports mobile emulation testing. You can test mobile content by emulating an Android browser by passing “mobile=1” as an API option.

Is there a daily/monthly limit to the tests run? How long do I have access to test results?

There is a monthly limit on the total tests you can run with the WebPageTest API, based on the subscription plan you choose. There is currently no daily limit on top of that monthly limit.

Do you provide any integrations that I can use with the API?

We currently support the following:

- WebPageTest API wrapper: NPM package that wraps WebPageTest API for NodeJS as a module and a command-line tool   
- GitHub Actions: The GitHub Action lets you automatically run tests against WebPageTest on code changes, set and enforce performance budgets, and have performance data automatically added to your pull requests to move the performance conversation directly into your existing development workflow. 
There are also several existing integrations built by our community members that you can try out to build on top of the WebPageTest API. Check out some of them here.
