Download speed detection

Just came across a useful piece of javascript, designed to test the connection speed of your visitor. I’m thinking that if you have a page with a lot of flash on it (or even a lot of static images), you might be able to use this to send people on slower connections to a “lighter” version. Or better still, load the lighter version by default and send people on faster connections to the “prettier” version.

I haven’t tested it yet… but it looks like it might come in handy!
