Speedtest by Ookla – Accurately Test your Internet Speed
Your best bud calls for a round of multiplayer gaming. First things first, you head over to you PC browser to check your internet connection. Typically, you fire up your browser, do a Google search for speed test sites, and then find a good one to use.
However, Ookla deems this process too lengthy. And as the owners of speedtest.net, the internet’s premier speed test website, they do know their onion. With Speedtest by Ookla, the company brings speed testing directly to your Chrome toolbar.
With this speed test extension, you get the ability to check your ping, download, and upload speeds, as well how fast your websites load.
How it Works
Speedtest by Ookla brings all the warm goodness from the website and presents it in a smoother, more accessible package. With this extension, a single click will give you full details of your internet speed (ping, download, and upload speeds.)
In our tests, we found out that the extension loads your speed statistics a tad bit faster than the parent website. However, when comparing stats, we noticed that the extension’s estimate was always slightly lower than the metric on the site.
Once installed, a click on the extension will take a speed test of your current internet connection. Just punch the go button to begin.
You also get details on your web experience in the form of website load times. You can find this at the bottom of the extension’s interface.
.Speedtest by Ookla is an efficient extension by one of the most trusted names in the business. The extension works smoothly and always responded quickly during our test.
The extension takes a few seconds to establish a reading. However, this is even faster than what you get on the website.
However, it is important to note that the extension is quite larger than we expected and might lag or malfunction on older devices.
