If you're trying to figure out what it's like to use your site via  
dial-up modem or other type of connection, get Sloppy.

Sloppy is a "slow proxy for dial-up modem speed simulation" -- that  
is, it's a deliberately slow web proxy that runs on your computer and  
slows down your connection to simulate specific types of slow  
connections.  Just what you need to show that graphic designer with  
the 22" screen and T1 line what you've been talking about all this time.
