Some designers have taken the rise of broadband to mean that graphic intensive pages are now acceptable, that 600k Flash intros are suddenly desirable, and that otherwise bombarding the user with bandwidth-hungry sites is commendable. Sadly, plenty of users are still on dial-up, using 28k, 33.6k or 56k modems, and it's all too easy to forget that when you're surfing on a high speed office connection or even your home broadband.

This guy has made available a throttled proxy, to allow you to experience what it would be like to view your site on various dialup speeds.

I posted 2 links today from the same site. If I provide a screenshot of the page for both, and mouser decides to blog them, then they will seem to have the same image as the thumbnail and that wouldn't look so good on the blog.

So I decided to open up Paintshop Pro and take a photo of the monitor from my slow pc and do something creative and appropriate with it.

The result is Laggy the Snail...he moves at a blazing dialup speed of 33.6k.  cheesy

I like the image enough to work on it bit more at some point....he may make appearances in future posts.  Wink
