As David Johnson suggested, "context is everything."

Without context a tool might be...

1) WordPress CMS

2) LAMP Stack - Linux + Apache + MariaDB + PHP

3) https://WebPageTest.org - Or similar testing tool

4) Web Scrapper - Like PhantomJS or Selenium

No way to guess without some context, like a clickable URL of where such a tool was mentioned.
