comment Does An HTML5-based Broadband Speed Test Exist?
SpeedTest.net, MeasurementLab.net, BroadbandReports.net and TestMy.net all measure my upload speed with no problems. Only SpeedOf.me has the problem. === I've recently upgraded Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. I reset my modem, router and computer. === But SpeedOf.me still returns an error on the upload test. === I can't consider your answer as my accepted answer, if the test you shared does not work for me, on my Internet connection. === If the situation changes, I'll let you know.

As you indicated, Speedof.me did add an upload test. But on Mozilla Firefox 14 and Google Chrome 20, the upload test returned an error for me. (I re-tried the test multiple times) === So at the moment, this test is still not usable for me. Therefore, I'm leaving TestMy.net as the accepted answer.

I tried testmy.net with Google Chrome 19 and Mozilla Firefox 13. Both browsers were able to load the website and gave me an accurate report of my download and upload speed. === It appears you have found an accurate HTML5/JS test, so I'm marking your answer as accepted. === However, if someone posts a superior website (such as a website with more transparency in the location of their testing servers) I may change my accepted answer again. === Thanks for your submission.

Thanks for sharing this. It's definitely an impressive feat of HTML5 and Javascript. --- But I only see a download test, this tool doesn't appear to have an upload test. (at the moment)

Jason-Burgett: For my connection, the speed reported on that website was 1.5 mb/s Down (during the download-only test, retried multiple times) while SpeedTest.net and MeasurementLab.net are reporting 15 mb/s Down. I'm not sure if the test you shared is accurate. ======= @Tchalvak Did work for me in Chrome 15, but it required clicking more than once. (might be a browser bug)

I'm glad to see that the pieces of this puzzle are starting to appear; it would be great to run a broadband speed test without the requirement of a browser plugin.

Well a broadband speed test that utilized Javascript would be great too. ------ But I was thinking along the lines of Herohtar's answer above, a test using the future functionality of HTML5.
