How to Verify Adaptive Acceleration Features are Working on Browser

As we know, Adaptive Acceleration's umbrella consists of the below features:

  1. Automatic Push/Preconnect
  2. Resource Optimizer
  3. Automatic Font Preload
  4. Script Management

To read more about these features, please refer to Akamai Community

Now let's see how we can validate if these features are working as expected on browser and using Chrome extension Piez.
