2 February 2009

Google released a new online network diagnostic tool, Measurement Lab . ArtistsC01_logoThey are offering many different tools, some working and some upcoming. Some of the tools on offer are the Network Diagnostics tool, that gives you an idea on connection speed and any problems that involve your connection. Another tool they offer is Network path and applications diagnositics
, which usually plagues broadband networks.

Now all this isn't new, it's actually very old, but what google has been saying is that this information has been available to webmasters, hackers and administrators for some time now. Google wants to expand these services to a much wider range of people.

This is good for all of us, because the more free software thats available to help us compete with the corparate companies the better.
