JavaScript and HTML5 technology

   We believe HTML5 is a potential candidate for cross-platform mobile applications. Due to high resource usage and other compatibility issue with Adobe Flash, we cannot adopt Flash as a technology for Cross-Platform applications. So we pick HTML5 as our core technology. What is the advantage of HTML5? Todays Mobile device natively supports HTML5 and they continue to support this technology. So Openspeedtest.com will work on various web browsers within different operating systems without installing any additional apps or plugins. JavaScript and HTML5 technology is improving day by day. Most of the website/web application uses javascript. The performance of javascript is depended on the device performance and the javascript engine used to execute the javascript on end user device. The V8 JavaScript Engine is an open source JavaScript engine developed by Google. V8 JavaScript engine compiles JavaScript into machine code just before it is executed. There are other active projects like V8 are live! For increasing javascript performance, for example Rhino, managed by the Mozilla Foundation, JavaScriptCore by Apple etc. So today javascript is more powerful than ever.

Why speed test using openspeedtest.com is unique?

   As we said earlier openspeedtest.com is using its unique algorithm to test your connection speed within your web browser, we are not controlled by any ISP so we can show you exact connection speed in between you and our server. Most alternatives use your isp server itself to test your speed, it is like testing your internet speed in between your device and your router, if you test it will show you the maximum but actually your real speed outside isp is very low. If you test your speed in most famous speed test site and it shows you 3mbps speed and when you try to watch a YouTube video it starts buffering why? Ok YouTube server may be slow! Here is the very important point when you test your internet speed. Latency is an important factor and you and your isp server in-between latency is very small 3 to 10 ms. But when you are trying to connect a server that is 1000KM away the latency will increase. If your isp is smart enough to route your connection in a smarter way you will get good results. So a speed test with your isp server does it mean anything until you test your speed with other servers online. Openspeedtest.com will analyse your minimum and maximum latency and calculate your internet speed by using our unique algorithm. That finally gives you the most accurate, stable connection speed. You can test openspeedtest.com results by running a torrent or downloading a file using any download manager and limit your speed by 50% or whatever you like, then start testing your speed it will show you the exact speed you getting currently that is 1/2 of your speed (if you set 50%).
