Internet Connection Speed Tests with HTML5

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Here’s a quick overview and comparison of five different services that can be used to test HTML5 connection speed …

It makes sense at time to check the connection speed of an Internet connection. Maybe you just got a new line, upgraded an existing one, or are traveling. Maybe it is just for making sure that you get the advertised connection speed, or making sure that the hotel’s Internet connection is sufficient for pushing that Gigabyte video to YouTube or a company server. Most Internet speed tests up until now used Adobe Flash to power the tests. While that worked, it required Adobe Flash to work at all.

Here’s a simple, effective solution for a very common problem …

The following guide provides you with information on how to speed up the time it takes to display the right-click menu on machines running the Windows operating system. I noticed recently on a machine running Windows 10 that some right-clicks on files, folders or the taskbar, would take several seconds to load on the first right-click.

As there have been a few new browser releases recently, with Opera, Chrome and Safari all making great leaps forward, I though it was time to do a comprehensive head-to-head test to see how the new Firefox stacks up against them.
