Finalist: BlazeMeter

Are you working on a publicly accessible website that you need to test for scalability and performance? Rather than downloading bits to a bank of computers to simulate the load of hundreds, thousands, and tens of thousands of simultaneous connections, you can save yourself a lot of time, hassle, and money by using a cloud service optimized for Web application testing.

BlazeMeter offers more than 15 major features that help test, capture, and report on a website's performance under varying degrees of stress. Using its expansive cluster of JMeter resources, BlazeMeter can easily simulate a wide range of load, and launch over a hundred thousand browsers at your testing target to see how it holds up. Data visualization tools allow you to see how your application is holding up in real time, as well as deeply inspect performance post tests for bottlenecks and stress points. The job of creating and running tests is intuitively simple, as is reviewing the results in colorful and meaningful performance charts, graphs, and statistics.
