My workplace is practically near the servers (read: same city) but for collegues working abroad, in other continents the connection speed for their network is much less, and even when they connect to a server that is outside their network performance goes down rapidly.

It would help (and create a bit of awareness) to have the option to specify your connection speed, so you can test your application for different kind of users. Preferably somewhere from the statusbar in Designer. (I believe WYSIWYG editors like Dreamweaver have it) .

I know this will not tackle all or mimic most of the problems users face, but at least I can see how my app works at different speeds. In that way I can search for and test performance improvements.

NetLimiter seems to have this down pat so I don't quite see why Lotus should spend valuable time doing it...?

well thats just another program to buy isn't?

I guess in Dreamweaver they thought an additional program was not needed since they where cable to integrare something similar in their product. Why can't Lotus?

I'd rather Lotus spent time cleaning up the interface than spending time on yet another project they'd have to learn from square 1. I've seen enough version 1.0 misfeatures from Lotus' side to really, really fear them going into the network code and doing something like this...

well its just 'narrowing' your connection speed for your (local) Notes client, or am I wrong?
