Using the Console in Chrome to Throttle network speed

Mon Jul 08, 2019 1:14 pm

Hey guys,

Just curious is any of you have tried and had success throttling a chrome download via the console you get with F12. I am attempting to use that, but it seems to have no effect at all. I can even set the throttle level to "Offline" and it still download full tilt.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Whoops, I found my error. I had already started the download prior to applying throttling. I applied throttling and then cancelled and restarted the download, but apparently you need to start the download fresh from the site again, not use "retry" after cancelling to get the download to throttle properly.

Nevermind :)
