Website performance optimization tools are software programs or online services that are used to analyze and improve the speed and performance of a website. These tools can help to identify areas of a website that are causing slow load times, and provide recommendations on how to fix them.
1. Page speed testing tools
These tools test the load time of a webpage and provide a score and detailed report on the factors that are affecting the load time, such as the size of images, the number of requests made by the page, and the amount of code used. Some popular page speed testing tools include Google PageSpeed Insights, GTmetrix, and Pingdom.
2. Web performance monitoring tools
These tools continuously monitor the performance of a website and provide alerts when the performance falls below certain thresholds. These tools can help to identify performance issues before they affect users.
3.Image optimization tools
These tools help to optimize images by reducing their file size without compromising on quality, which can greatly improve the load time of a webpage. Some popular image optimization tools include Kraken.io, Imagify, and TinyPNG.
4. Code optimization tools
These tools help to optimize the code used on a website by minifying it, which can greatly improve the load time of a webpage. Some popular code optimization tools include Autoptimize, Minify and Clean-CSS
5. Browser extension
Some browser extension like Google's Lighthouse, WebPageTest and others can be added to your browser to run performance test on any webpage you visit and give you suggestions to improve the website's performance.
