Testing websites
#1
After launching website I like to run it through Nibbler (http://nibbler.silktide.com) to see what improvements I could make. While it only checks 5 pages, it is usually enough to catch some not so obvious issues. And it is always a fun challenge to reach a higher score.
Another tool I use is PageSpeed (https://developers.google.com/pagespeed/#), to see how can I make my websites load faster.
What other tools do you use to check and optimize your websites?

Hi Joshas,

fireburner, HTML-validator, CSS-validator is used often, but one "tool" is the most important:

a User! You need a user who navigates around your site, he / she will find many traps ;=)

Didn't know these 2.

Problem with nibbler is that it seems it doesn't work with domain sites where the head-domain points to one site.

I have wouterb.be pointing to wouterb.be/wbpress. But I also have: wouterb.be/gs and wouterb.be/gs-b. Nibbler says I only have wouterb.be/wbpress.

You could reconfigure your website with sub domains instead of sub directories wouterb.be -> wouterb.be/wbpress, gs.wouterb.be -> gs.wouterb.be/gs, etc., which would be nicer anyway.
I18N, I18N Search, I18N Gallery, I18N Special Pages - essential plugins for multi-language sites.
