Just in time for our speaking session at SenchaCon 2013 we are happy to announce the latest version of Dynatrace AJAX Edition. Version 4.2 now supports the latest versions of Firefox (FF 21 & FF 22). Download the latest version from our AJAX Edition website.

SenchaCon 2013 Session Preview

If you happen to be at SenchaCon 2013 then consider checking out our session. I will show you how to best leverage the AJAX Edition to analyze and optimize Page Load as well User Interaction times of modern web applications for both Internet Explorer as well as Firefox. We start by giving new AJAX Edition users a brief introduction on the core functionality but will then mainly talk about advanced features and Best Practices on both browser-side performance but also the impact that modern browser technologies have on the overall application performance – especially under load.

Looking forward to seeing some of you in the audience.
