Developer's Description

Real-world connection simulator and bandwidth limiter
Slowy is a tool which simulates custom connection's conditions and limits the network traffic to a specified destination port. It is created for web developers, like me, who need to test a website with a real-world connection, even on a local server. Slowy is an OSX MenuBar app, so it is lightweight and is placed only on the system topbar.Its main features are:- Multiple network presets (5 included)With Slowy you can simulate multiple network conditions. Moreover, the app includes five built-in presets for the most common usecases. The presets included are: 56K, EDGE, 3G, LTE/4G and DSL. - Custom bandwidth limit, latency, packet loss rate and port Each preset has its own settings. You can setup: bandwidth [kbit/s], packet loss rate [%], packet latency [msec] and the destination port. Moreover, you can limit downlink and uplink speeds selectively. Lightweight and unobtrusiveAs Slowy mainly is a GUI for built-in OSX tools, it will occupy only few MB of your RAM and nearly 0% of your CPU. Moreover, Slowy is not a proxy so you do not need to change the address on your browser. Slowy restricts the network traffic only to one portSlowy has the ability to apply the network preset only to the traffic to the selected port. This means that it will not affect other services.
