Some of the most popular sites include Pingdom, GTmetrix and WebPagetest. These all offer similar services such as YSlow, load speeds and Waterfalls. They also give you a letter grade like in school to show you how well you perform in certain categories. This is a great way to see where your site is under performing and tighten up.

If you’re testing website user load or worried about it crashing during that important sale then look no further than Load Impact, which offers benchmarking of 50 simulated users for free (more on paid services).
