Sometimes you need to test browser activity with slow connections. QA may need to test the user experience when it takes a long time for an image or JS file.
Chrome throttling is forcing the browser to slow down. This simulates a slow activity that users may experience via slow internet connections.
Here are a couple of throttling settings to add.
Here's a handy chart of various Internet Speeds:
Throttling testing is a good way to see what the page load looks like for some users. This is especially helpful when testing sites for mobile.
If you're running a Business to Business website, then running performance testing via throttling doesn't make sense since most users will be using fast internet.
Throttling testing is good for distance testing. (For example, if you have customers that are Japan, your website may not be performing as fast as people in New York City - because your servers are far away from their location.)
