It's called a "human being." There is no other tool to match it.

Hmm, Peter I accept your word and I liked the way you suggested me. No doubt we are superior than any tool.


Thanks Peter

A quick Google search for "Usability Testing Tools" turns up many useful links, including these:
http://www.usefulusability.com/24-usability-testing-tools/
http://econsultancy.com/us/blog/5932-ten-free-usability-testing-tools

Like Peter though, I also believe there is no tool that can substitute for a smart, diligent, well-trained human being.

PowerMapper SortSite v4 is good as an initial automated site check for Web Accessibility, Usability, SEO & HTML validation.
It can export results to excel.

If you get the downloaded trial version - this can be used on internal sites.

But again this would be the initial check to ensure the site is coded compliantly.

It is also a great tool for making developers cry, as it WILL show up their bad coding and validation, but is more useful in using as a guage to determin what else has been coded wrong.

You will still need to follow it up with manual tests.
