Keynote Systems (Nasdaq:KEYN), the global leader in on-demand Internet test & measurement solutions for continuously improving the online experience, today launched the FastWeb Race, a competition designed to help the Web community share experiences and build faster Web sites and applications. Web companies and developers are invited to submit their most knotty Web applications for consideration. Entries that are deemed to represent the most stubborn, prevalent performance challenges on the Web will be selected by a panel of Web technology & performance experts. Findings on how to improve performance will be supplied to selected entrants for free. Entries must be received by June 30th. More information about submitting entries can be found at: www.fastwebrace.com.
The competition is open to anyone who wants to make tired, poor, slow Web applications faster and more responsive. Entrants simply record the Web site path or transaction that they want to improve using KITE (Keynote Internet Testing Environment) which can be downloaded for free from http://kite.keynote.com/download-center.php.

Once all entries have been received, the panel of industry experts will identify the top five entries that they consider to be compelling examples of prevalent Web performance bottlenecks that have the most potential to improve the performance of the Web. The winners will receive a free performance assessment of their site and a free pass for the Web Operations Conference Velocity 2009. The lessons learned will also be shared with the larger Web community for the greater good.
“We’re really excited about the FastWeb Race and are looking forward to supporting the Web community’s ever evolving efforts to solve performance issues,” said Corinna Krueger, chair of the FastWeb Race. “Every day we work with Web developers, QA and Web Operations professionals, and there’s a great wealth of knowledge which we can all learn from if we share our experiences.
