Keep up to Speed with free Speed Tests

The impatience of Internet users with regards to the time it takes to load a Website is a well known fact. A Website's performance and its ability to load quickly are subsequently critical factors in its usability and - more importantly - success. Any one - or perhaps even several - of the following selection of free tools can be incorporated into the process of Web development in order to create faster sites and identify potential performance bottlenecks.

Page Speed Online - This handy Google tool analyses Website performances in accordance with Google's Best Practises for Web Performance, a set of optimal performance (front-end) rules. It provides plenty of information, including reports on best optimal performance practises for mobile devices.

Pingdom Tools - This online Website, network and server monitoring service provides several reports, including, for instance, a breakdown of varying objects' ( images, JavaScript libraries, style sheets, and so on) loading times; browser caching performance grades and page analysis providing information on page sizes, requests and load times.
