Hi a nice link to test how fast a webpage will load (also in Polish): http://test.watchscript.com/?lang=en
Total loading time of this forum site was 11.157 seconds.
Also nice for scanning defaced sites.

Or use Mill Test Reports from here: https://www.websitepulse.com/help/testtools.mtr-test.html
Other free tools there also.

enjoy,

Do a resolver check here: http://www.openresolver.nl/ 
Please, give in resolver ip or hostname
No reaction from server is green and OK.

The PUP download is thwarted by my Google Chrome browser.
Avast blocks the access of htxp://www.amtso.org/uploads/cloudcar.exe

So I am good to go,

This test has been around for a while. It was in a post from over a year ago, if I remember right.
But, it's great to see it pop-up every now and then.  8)

Test whether your router could be turned into a zombie proxie to be used in amplification attacks through this test:
http://www.openresolver.nl/
I get a no reaction, so that is OK.

Or test here: http://openresolver.com/?ip=
You should get Recursive resolver is not detected on (ip address)
IP address (so and so) is not vulnerable to DNS Amplification attacks.

Check and secure your browser plug-ins: http://www.check-and-secure.com/browsercheck/_en/
I mean just the first informational part,
not the supposed hardening or the proposed non-avast scanners and cleaners mentioned on that page.
This plug-in and find was a surprise yo me: http://techdows.com/2012/08/is-it-possible-to-remove-chrome-remote-desktop-viewer-plugin-from-chrome.html

enjoy,
