To check the performance, load time and issues related to website load, we were using Page Speed Chrome extension or Firefox add-on. Or YSlow Google Chrome extension and Firefox add-on by Yahoo as well for the same purpose. But now Google has created a dedicated webpage to check the performance of a website using Page Speed without installing the same. That means, you can check all the parameters and get results online by just entering the website address.
Page Speed Online is an easy way to check the load sequence, load time and Page Speed score of a webpage in no time. Speed Tracer Chrome extension is also available to check the performance of website but Page Speed is what Google is also using to check the site performance in Webmaster tool.

On the Page Speed Online result page, you can see lot many suggestions from Google to improve the performance. You may check each of them and even find more information about the same on that page. I would suggest you to have Page Speed score above 80 for each and every page of your website.
I tested Internet Techies on Page Speed and the score for home page is 85 and for single pages / posts is 88. Still there is scope for some improvements but as I am using few third party applications like Facebook Fan Box and Google Ads, those are getting errors in result.
