Testing Your Site Online

After the site has been transferred to the remote server, the testing process starts all over again. Although you've checked the site for approximate download speeds, accessibility, cross-browser compatibility, and code validation with Dreamweaver's tools, nothing can replace real-life experience.

Testing Download Speed

As mentioned earlier, the download speed provided by Dreamweaver in the status bar is only an approximation based purely on the size of the document and its components and the speed of the user's connection. After the site is on the server, you can test the accuracy of Dreamweaver's prediction. If you're using a broadband connection, it's very important to visit the site through a standard modem, especially if your intended audience will include a significant number of dial-up users.
