KITE (Keynote Internet Testing Environment) 3.0 Soars Higher Than Ever

A free desktop tool for real time testing, diagnosing and troubleshooting

Keynote Systems, a provider of on-demand mobile and Internet test & measurement solutions for continuously improving the online experience, today announced Version 3.0 of KITE (Keynote Internet Testing Environment). KITE 3.0 is Keynote’s free desktop tool for real time testing, diagnosing and troubleshooting of Web performance issues from the end user perspective. KITE 3.0 makes it easy for all Web teams, especially QA testers, Web developers and IT Operations teams, to optimize Web site performance from the end user perspective. And KITE 3.0 arrives just in time for online retailers preparing their sites for the upcoming 2009 holiday shopping season. For more information about KITE 3.0 view: http://kite.keynote.com/whats_new.php

Enhancements to KITE 3.0 include:

Powerful New Diagnostics:

  • Screen Sensing Technology™ captures interaction with Flash and Silverlight.
  • Virtual Pages identifies and tracks the performance of specific third-party content and components.
  • Automated Custom Components adds calculated or custom-extracted data to your Web performance monitoring results.

Faster Triage:

  • Page Snapshot Pane will help quickly and precisely determine what’s happening during each step of a script recorded for a Web transaction.
  • Group Web site performance results by multiple (nested) groups to quickly identify problems and speed up mean time to repair. Think of it like a Pivot Table in Excel or arranging email “by conversation” in Outlook.
  • KITE 3.0 supports IE8 for local recording and playback. This means one can use KITE for local on-demand testing and triage allowing all IE8 users to quickly resolve performance bottlenecks. Script Report provides 1-click capability to document and share details of a script with a colleague or work group.

Better Usability:

  • KITE 3.0’s recording window has a clean new look and an Address Bar that allows one to enter a new URL in the middle of a transaction. This often-requested direct navigation feature provides greater control and flexibility in the recording window while creating familiar “Navigate to” commands in the scripting window. KITE 3.0 Plays restores browser settings and cookies after a test runs.

“KITE 3.0 sets a new standard for features and functionality included in a Web performance testing tool – let alone a free one. The tool now offers more powerful diagnostics, faster triage and better usability,” said Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate development at Keynote. “And all of this great new powerful diagnostic capability, better triage and increased usability included within KITE 3.0 is enhanced and supported by the unsurpassed power of Keynote’s world leading global test & measurement network.”
