I like it because it gives you a rough idea why sometimes you have to wait a long time for a webpage to appear. It's also pretty popular. I come across this applet often when I see screenshots on the web


Thats a nifty little applet. Current tools mostly produce data for site admins
not immediate user feedback. Is this something the author plans to submit for
gnome 2.6 do you know ?


Glad you like it too :-). I haven't spoken with the author. It's maybe a good idea if you contact him and encourage him to submit it. I guess alan cox of redhat will make a bigger impression on him then jaap haitsma ;-)


I have (spoken to the author). There was a proposal to include it in
gnome-applets. However, an issue opened up with it merging with
gnome-system-monitor (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97664).

However, the author still would like the applet exactly as what it is -
to display network traffic numbers (not in graphs).

For GNOME 2.6, the network-status-applet by Mark McLoughlin has been
prposed for inclusion, and it duplicates some netspeed features. So,
including both doesn't seem viable?

Jeff Waugh has had a thought of a gnome-powertools package, and he
wanted to include netspeed - the author is agreeable, but Jeff has been
silent about the issue.

The displaying of the traffic numbers is actually what I like so much about the applet. The gnome-powertools package seems like a good idea to me
