KITE: Keynote’s Internet Test Environment

Keynote has announced KITE their “Internet Test Environment.”:

KITE is a product that is used by Keynote customers today. But at Velocity we will be announcing the KITE Early Adopter program in which Keynote is allowing anyone in the world to sign up (at http://kite.keynote.com) to work with us to put this FREE product to use. Early Adopters will have in their arsenal a really strong and sophisticated product to measure, test and diagnose the performance of Web applications and sites.

KITE is a new desktop-based test and measurement environment for recording, editing and analyzing the performance of Web sites across the Internet cloud that is intended to bridge the gap between web application developers, QA teams, performance analysts and web operations.

KITE enables Web developers, QA professionals and others, to execute rapid performance analysis and validation to measure the end user experience of next generation Web 2.0 applications that include AJAX and asynchronously downloaded content with point and click ease. Scripts can be shared as benchmarks and to perform triage among all the web application life cycle groups, including developers, QA, performance analysts and Web operations/IT Departments.

Steve Souders had a preview and gave us a few thoughts:

  • Test scripts can include taking actions based on DOM events, such as the creation of a DOM element or even the contents of a DOM element matching a specified pattern.
  • An intuitive HTTP profile is displayed in the client app.
  • Tests can be executed at five cites worldwide on the Keynote backbone.
  • It’s free! You don’t need to be a Keynote customer to use it.
