As a blogger / developer, it is always fascinating to know the loading time of your website and compare it with others. Of course, the loading time of your website depends on many different factors. It could be anything between the software and hardware that power your site. But users of your site does not really care about any of this. It is how long it takes for them to see your site on their browser that counts.
So here I prepared a list of free websites that can help you to test the loading time of any website.
