Website of the Day: Typeracer

How speedy a typer are you? I remember the days when I first learned how to type properly with both hands and I would always take those online typing tests to see how many words per minute I could achieve. Well if you're like me and love typing speed tests, I suggest checking out Typeracer, a fun game that lets you compete with other typing hotshots — forewarning, it's truly addictive! Just enter a username, click "race against others," wait for the green light, and type the short message below. You'll see your car at the top and how well you're doing. And yes, some people have achieved 220 wpm — nuts!To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,

So addictive. My competitive spirit kicks in and then... damn. I'm decent with typing speed, so I usually get in first or second, but second feels like an insult.

I like that it shows how fast you type, since I had no idea of my WPM.
