How to use Mercury test?

Recommended Posts

Looking at using TMN Mercury test, but I don't understand how to copy a website image. In the Mercury directions it says right/control click to "copy image address" but either I don't understand the directions or it doesn't work on my chromeos chromebook. Any help would be much appreciated.

Give me an example of the site you're trying to use and I'll provide screenshots.

 

In the first version of Mercury I'm just trying to get things laid out... I have no idea yet how I'm truly going to layout and display the information yet... needed to gather information first.  To gather information people need to use it... for people to use it they need something to use.  Catch 22.  So I'm sorry if it's not very user friendly, early stages.

Can you describe the specific keystroke or combination of keys used to "copy image address"? Also what os and browser are you using to copy/paste the image address into Mercury? Thanks!

 

Right click your mouse on the image

Once copied paste into Mercury

(the example wouldn't work because the image is too small.  200 kB is a great size but any image over 50 kB will work.)

 

Chromebook copy and paste may help too ... I think two finger click is your right click.   :wink: (MacBooks are like this too)

You're running a max of 6 Mbps so it's not as noticeable for you but anyone faster than ~ 20 Mbps would probably suffer testing against that address... at least using the route I took.  Different clients using different routes may produce better or worse results.
