26 Basic Tools for Testing Your Website

Have you ever wanted to buy goods or services on a website that takes a few seconds to load or you need to figure out which button to tap on? If things are complicated and website performance is poor, people will find another place to complete their needs. If you only plan to launch your site or you want to improve the current one, use basic tools for testing to find out what’s going wrong and what you should improve right away.


Tools for performance testing

You can be fine with online website testing services – they will show you the speed of the page load, how people see your site from different locations, and so on. The more different manual website testing tools you use, the more you will be able to improve.


Here are the top eleven tools for performance testing:


  1. Google Page Speed Insights – a site performance from Google, both for mobile and desktop devices.
  2. Webpagetest – it checks to detect the causes of the slow loading of the site.
  3. GTMetrix – it allows you to check the performance of the site.
  4. Pingdom – it’s a monitoring service and a free automated website testing tool.
  5. Gomez – viewing from multiple locations. Over 100 locations to choose from.
  6. Alertra – viewing from several locations.
  7. Load Impact – testing from several locations and performance reports.
  8. FeedTheBot – tests for website optimization and performance.
  9. Dotcom Monitor – site performance tests from 20 locations with just one click.
  10. RedBot is a small utility for checking HTTP headers.
  11. Neustar Ultratools – a set of utilities for checking the speed of hosting, DNS, and more.

Mobile-friendly testing tools

If you already have a site friendly with mobile devices, or you plan to get one, these basic website QA testing tools will definitely help you. Today I decided to collect for you the best tools for testing sites on mobile operating systems such as iOS and Android, without the need to use physical devices. These tools will help you test the functionality and adaptability of your sites on various mobile platforms.

Below I want to give you a small selection of mobile emulators, as well as other tools for testing and validation on various mobile platforms. These tools will help you identify the problem areas of your website and take appropriate action.

Testing takes time and effort. However, it will make you feel sure that everything works fine and site visitors will be fully satisfied with their experience. The variety of tools is huge, so it may be hard to check every trifle on the site. 

Another way of validating high performance and compatibility with mobile devices is hiring a website testing company instead of spending so much time on completing this task yourself. In this case, you will have a person or a team that has professional tools for testing every feature of the site – it’s a  good choice if you need high-quality testing processes and predictable results.
