I disagree about it being deprecated.  The port is only partially superceded
by the online website.  Since the port includes both server and client
components it can be used to measure bandwidth between any two computers
that you control in addition to connecting to any 'official' servers.  The
online website is not as flexible (and it requires a flash-enabled
webbrowser too which as we all know is not so easily obtained on FreeBSD.)
