Ookla SpeedTest.Net vs Fast.com, which should you use?

Two of the worlds most popular internet speed test platforms are SpeedTest.Net and Fast.com


Both of these platforms do what they are meant to do.  But they are certainly different.




User Friendliness:


Fast.com takes the win here, as all you have to do is visit the fast.com website and it immediately launches the speed test and shows your result right away, a screenshot is posted below.  On the other hand, speedtest.net shows different results compiled into one area, like Ping, Upload Speed, and Download Speed.  Many people may not know what this is, like people who know what a megabyte is, but not Upload Speed, Download Speed, or Ping.






Accuracy:


These both seem to be accurate and about the same speed results.  They serve you with accurate results without any general issues.  SpeedTest.net nor Fast.com take the win.


Site Loadtime:


SpeedTest.Net has an average load time of 0.54 seconds, whereas Fast.com has an average load time of about 0.64, meaning SpeedTest.Net takes the win, but this should not matter at all due to its minimal difference.


The winner is Fast.com


The winner is Fast.com because of its extreme user-friendliness, and simplicity.  It is easy for anyone to understand their internet speed, by simply showing a number, like 417MBPS.  If you want to use Fast.com all you have to do is visit https://fast.com and it will immediately start the speed test and show you your results within seconds.

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDEgFsefrGw&t=541s The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
