    install seoquake into your browser and it will check the competition's backlinks to page, backlinks to domain, PR, # of indexed pages, age of site and a few other things. it does it automaticall each time you search.

    seoquake.com

    I think you should go for a tool rather than using a online tool.
    Online tools are usually not enough efficient to give you accurate analysis report.

    Moreover, they required lot of human intervention.

    I use 'Keyword Country' for analysing my SEO and PPC competition... You can try with it!

    I just tried SEO Quake and actually really like it :) it's helpful just to know the PR of the site etc... Gives you an idea anyway.

    In Google Chrome I use the "ChromeSEO" plugin and find it works great.

    Gives you:

    PR
    Backlink #'s (Google, Yahoo, Majestic)
    Alexa Ranking
    Social Stats (Likes, +1's, etc)
    Site Age
    Who-is info
    Traffic estimates
    Page's Indexed

    A whole slew of stats.

    I use it daily

    I would always recommend 'SearchStatus' for knowing the various stats of a website.
