Finally, test your internet speed without Adobe Flash Player on SpeedTest

I know that one URL you visit everytime you need to test your internet speed : SpeedTest. It has been stuck on using Adobe Flash Player to perform the tests for years now. Not anymore!

Ookla, the company behind SpeedTest has finally given up on Flash Player and have adopted HTML5 SpeedTest engine and it is better than ever.

You won’t need a flash plugin anymore and everything will just work in your browser with simple HTML page load. Sure, it’s hard to get excited about a speed-testing site in general, but it’s a good harbinger of the inevitable death of Adobe Flash.

It is finally good to see flash getting extinct gradually. Now let’s just hope NetFlix and Hulu drops them too.

So, what’s your speed?
