The extension will automatically evaluate your Magento store in terms of page speed with Google PageSpeed Insights and will store the results for further analysis.
This Magento extension is part of series of extensions designed to integrate the powerful Google APIs with your Magento store. It's designed to automate the page evaluation with Google PageSpeed Insights service and notify you in case of low score or stuff slowing your pages.
Often developers do what they do and sometimes pages may become slow after update. It may take days until you notice slow pages and/or rendering issues and in effect loose potential customers and conversions.
Google PageSpeed Insights is a service that evaluates your site and generates a score based on number of criteria. Score is a range between 0 and 100 where 0 is slow page and 100 is pretty fast page. It also provides essential suggestions on where a problem might be, how to solve it etc.
The extension can be used as automatic prevention and detection of slow pages.
Except for automatic evaluation of your page, the extension also stores the results in your Magento admin where data can be evaluated later and any potential page speed issues can be spotted easily. See Fig. 1
This extension can be evaluated online on our staging servers. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We'll be happy to clarify things for you prior to making a purchase.

Awesome idea by Anowave! Magento is notoriously slow and while this extension does not improve it's performance, it provides great feedback with reagards to page speed. We can now easily see how our store scores few times a day and allows us to spot performance issues after updates.
The extension is working as described. It needs however a tutorial with regards to obtaining Google API key.
Anyway, great work! Happy, happy.
