Bandwidth limiter / slow Internet simulation


I'm a web developer and need an easy to use bandwidth limiter / slow Internet simulator to test my websites. I would prefer a per application setting where I can limit, say only the web-brower etc.
A GUI would be nice as well.

Any recommendations?

Any possibility of using squid delay pools? I haven't tried this, never really having wanted to slow down 'net speeds, but it sounds plausible.

If you use Apache to host your websites, there is a module in apache named
PHP Code:
mod_cband 
. You can use this to limit the bandwidth for accessing your websites before putting into production.
