    What would you be looking for in such a tool? Testing tools could go from browser checks, to code validation, there is a wide range of those tools available. So, what do you want to use the tool for?

    Looking for tools...

    Oh..! I just said it on gross level, sorry,

    This is regarding, testing a web site, from all aspects..

    1. Ashthetic (Look and Feel)
    2. Links and Navigation, Buttons
    3. Images used, Theme, Consistency
    4. Color Scheme
    5. Code
    6. Browser

    I would be more interesting in knowing web site designing standards. It would have been great, if we would have had automated testing tolls for web designing.

    Thanks and regards

    I can only recommend you a combination of site checks I usually do. The first is the code through a code validator. You can find a great one at http://www.w3.org. This is also the organisation that determines the webstandards, so you might find some usefull information there as well.
    The browser check is something I usually do myself, I have various browsers installed on my pc, such as Opera 6.0, Netscape 4.x and Netscape 6.x (apart from IE 6.0).
    The first three are really subjective and are different for every viewer, although there is some general agreement on what looks nice and what doesn't. You might consider putting the website up for review at the Website Reviews forum, where members can give you comments on all sorts of aspects. You will find that you will get valuable responses from them. You will need to review three sites yourself as well, before your site will be allowed, but that is a small price for the great feedback you will get .

    Marks advice is good - I've always wondered why there isn't a GOOD web dev tool that a: Checks code (css, html, javascript and xhtml) to any specified standard, as well as representing the page in a glut of browsers - I'm no proper programmer - but how hard could it be? As soon as someone comes up with a GOOD product for doing this, they're gonna get rich!

    You're never going to find an automated tool which tells you if your website "looks" good. That's aesthetic expressions and can't be judged quantitatively.

    However, there are online tools that will test your code and load time for you:
