why I take so many speed tests

Recommended Posts

I got a private message from another member asking why I take so many speed tests(at least 50 per day).I'm 63 years old,retired,my wife still works so I'm alone all day.I use IE7 and Netscape browsers.I guess it's just sort of like a game with me;trying to hit that ever elusive 27mb.download speed.You probably think I need to get a life,but I just enjoy this.Joe

Hey joe. Just something you may enjoy. If you like figuring things out and such you could give opera browser a shot. Not saying its any better than what you use. What makes it diffrent is the ability to tweak it out just the way you want it. Make your right click just the way you want. It will speak text to ya, not a bad voice, on any web page. Just to give you a small example of how I tweaked my out.

I can right click,hit magnify,and a free program I found will open up a magnifying glass. I can pretty much surf and use tabs without a mouse useing my key board. Just a idea to help with the boredum.
