ROCKVILLE, Md. (November 9, 2006)–cyScape, Inc., creator of BrowserHawk, the industry standard software tool that helps businesses ensure a flawless web experience, today announced the release of BrowserHawk 10.0. This major upgrade features cyScape’s new patent-pending Page Load Time (PLT) technology, which provides unprecedented visibility into the page load times and overall performance of web sites. BrowserHawk 10.0 also adds support for Internet Explorer 7.0 and Firefox 2.0, and includes over a dozen new features and enhancements.

Unlike traditional tools and services which rely on synthetic transactions to estimate page load times, cyScape’s PLT technology measures the exact load times as experienced by each of a site’s actual visitors while using the site. PLT provides real-time data on the amount of time it takes for a page to begin loading (latency), its time to complete loading and, its total load time. PLT also provides a classification for the page view, such as if the page was served from the browser’s cache.

“We are excited about this breakthrough in page load time monitoring, which for the first time enables site developers and operators to know exactly how their site is performing in the real-world for its actual users”, said cyScape President and CEO Richard T. Litofsky. “With the rise in rich Internet applications and the varying quality of each user’s connectivity, it is now critical that businesses proactively monitor their site’s performance from the viewpoint of the end user–which is the viewpoint that matters most.”

The PLT technology in BrowserHawk 10 provides the first 100% complete, end-to-end measurements of page load time and web system performance. Every aspect of the system–from the user’s mouse, through their Internet connection to a site’s backbone, through its network and servers, and back to the end user is fully accounted for and measured. This data can also be correlated with details about the user’s system, such as their type of browser, type of Internet connection, and even the country where the user is located–all in real-time. Likewise BrowserHawk offers the ability to deliver different web content based on whether the user is using a dial-up vs. broadband connection.
