Client-Side Internet Speed Test

I wrote a client side speed test.

It downloads a non-cache-able GIF made so by dynamic filename from the .htaccess and measures the time passed with javascript.

That makes half the test based on my economy hosting speed, not to put a confuse on the title "Client-Side Speed Test" (because this is in fact all done javascript/client-side)

Shame that is how most of the internet is, given the super-servers are bandwidth bogged 24/7 and most personal home pages are on shared hosting, etc.

In summation, this is a more humble and honest speed test than those that do multiple (Pingback?) links to a server dedicated to doing so.

I don't even want to run multiple times to get an average, so you can get a feel for just how unstable your internet speed really is.
