If offers 14 locations to choose from around the globe, and you have the option of making your test results private or public. The test includes a waterfall breakdown and a visual website preview at the bottom.

It is also one of the only tools besides PageSpeed that is responsive and works great on mobile devices.

2-Google PageSpeed Insights

Google PageSpeed Insights is a website speed test tool that grades your website on a scale of 1 – 100. The higher the number the better optimized your site is. Anything above an 85 indicates that your website is performing well. PageSpeed gives you reports for both the desktop and mobile versions of your site. You can view recommendations for improvements such as you need to minify CSS or optimize your images.

PageSpeed Insights measures how the page can improve its performance on:

  • time to above-the-fold load: Elapsed time from the moment a user requests a new page and to the moment the above-the-fold content is rendered by the browser.
  • time to full page load: Elapsed time from the moment a user requests a new page to the moment the page is fully rendered by the browser.

A mobile report includes an extra category called “User Experience” that is included in the scoring of your site. This includes checking your viewport configuration, size of your tap targets (buttons and links), and also eligible font sizes.

The PageSpeed Insights team also recently launched a new website speed test tool on “think with Google” which you might want to check out. One nice feature is the beautiful reports that it generates. Can be great for sending to clients.

3-Pingdom Speed Test

The page analysis offers a great overview with additional information such as a size analysis, size per domain (you can easily compare your CDN assets size vs your domain), the number of requests per domain, and what type of content had the most requests.

Pingdom’s speed test tool also allows you to test your website’s speed from four main locations including:

  • Dallas, Texas, USA,
  • Melbourne, Australia

  • Stockholm, Sweden

The results of a Pingdom speed test provide you with performance insights, similar to Google PagesSpeed Insights, which outline where can you make improvements. The results also break down the page size by content type, page size by domain, requests by content type, and requests by domain.

WebPageTest is very similar to some of the previous tools mentioned but has over 40 locations to choose from and over 25 browsers (including mobile). It assigns you a grade from F to A based on different performance tests such as FTTB, compression, caching, effective use of a CDN, etc. It’s report is divided into six sections which include a summary, details, performance review, content breakdown, and screen shots.

6-Uptrends

Uptrends is pretty basic but they do offer over 35 locations to choose from when running your speed test. Their report is broken up into two sections, a waterfall breakdown and domain groups. The domain groups offers a unique perspective as it categorizes the resources into different sources: 1st party, statistics, CDN, social, ads, first party overall, and third party overall.

7-Sucuri Load Time Tester

The Sucuri Load Time Tester provides a quick and easy way to test the performance of your sites from around the globe. It will give you a global performance grade, from an A to F. The test measures how long it takes to connect to your site and for one page to fully load.
