The guys over at pingdom.com have developed an invaluable tool called the “Full Page Test” for calculating some useful statistics for your website that every developer should utilize to get the best performance possible. They analyze a variety of factors such as overall load time, size, requests, caching, bad requests, and more. Take a look at how BHM tested:
According to these results BHM is faster than 94% of the sites tested, not bad! For any section that your site may fall short in the tool also provides resources on how to fix them, and for extra measure they include detailed information on each individual request made.
