If you’ve been to YouTube recently (really, who hasn’t?), you’ll notice that there is a red bar that goes across the top of the page to indicate the page load progress. If you find yourself asking “How can I get that on my site?” well you’re in luck.
The PACE module allows you to put a variety of progress indicator on your site.
Setting up the module is extremely easy. Just download the module, enable it, visit http://yourdomain/admin/config/user-interface/pace to select the style you like, click Save and you’re good to go.
For a preview of the different styles, you can view them here http://github.hubspot.com/pace/docs/welcome/
This module is still in its infancy (only a week old) at the time of this writing, but I was able to get it up and running without any issues.
Enjoy. Now you are as cool as Google.
