HOW TO measure page load times across continents for free

How quickly users can view your web pages depends on a variety of factors like the browser they are using (newer browsers can download page elements concurrently & faster), their Internet connection speed, where the web server hosting the site is located (results in lesser hops) , size of the browser cache.

The freeware Fiddler which can be used to debug HTTP traffic provides very rough estimates of download times of any page element for different kinds of Internet connections (modem, DSL) across US, Europe & Asia.

WebPagetest offers a free service that's a lot more better! Not only does it provide an web page assessment of a submitted URL but it also let's you choose the test location from among USA, UK, Netherlands, Germany, China & New Zealand to conduct an actual test. It also lets you choose browser type (IE 7 or IE 8) & connnection type (Dial-up, DSL, Custom).
