    Javascript to find fastest download site/server??

    Is it possible, using client-side JavaScript, to test a series of download sites to see which is most likely to be the fastest file download site for a user?

    I wondered whether JavaScript could download a portion of a file, or alternatively a small sample image file, just to test the download speed of each site, then report to the user the fastest, next fastest, and so on.

    I assume it would be very easy to do, but please correct me if not. Links to similar JavaScript to accomplish this would be great!

    Thanks !

    I do not know about javascripts doing this but I have seen cgi script doing exactly what you need. Try and search in the Perl and Javascript category.
