How it works? `Sloth` uses Chrome Devtools Protocol to slow down connection and throttle CPU. What are the conditions? `Sloth` applies `4x` CPU throttling and slowing down network to `1.6Mbps` - for download, `750Kbps` - for upload. Interested in optional configurations - take a part in https://github.com/denar90/sloth/issues/1 discussion Why do I need it while chrome-devtools can do the same? Yes and no. DevTools can do it for opened tab, but you have to do a lot of manipulations to apply throttling (open dev tools, open proper tab, apply throttling etc). This extension is for lazy people, you just press one button and all URLs with same origin will have throttling. Handy isn't it?
