    I want to slow down the loading of a web page

    There is an issue with images on my site when it is loaded slowly, but I cannot always reproduce this.
    Is there a tool I can use that will make a page load more slowly?

    Don't you mean speed up the load of your website? Probably a combination of optimizing your images. We would be able to provide a better answer/advice if we saw a page.

    Thanks for the reply. What I meant was that I want a way to load it slowly in my browser so that I can tell whether or not changes I make are improving it.

    You can throttle your web server to say 14kB per second to simulate slow link (which will result in slow loading pages).

    On apache:

    On IIS:

    Do you know if there is there a way to mimic a slow connection on my side, rather than changing something on the server? Thanks.

    On Linux you can use "tc" (traffic control) command to mimic slow link on your side. There is a handy wrapper script at:

    I don't know anything about similar solution for Windows, sorry...
