Down for everyone or just me is possibly one of the most useful sites I’ve stumbled upon in a long time. The frustration of trying to work and waiting for a website to load, not knowing if it’s your browser hanging or the site is temporarily offline, is one of the things that frustrates me most.
No longer though – the new site (who’s design is more basic even than Google’s home page!) aims to dispel the frustrations and give a definitive answer. Down for everyone or just me allows you to type in a URL and then checks to see if the site is live on the Internet. No more waiting to see if a website is down for everyone or if it really is your own computer/Internet connection that’s playing up.
They have a sense of humour too, just for fun I typed in their own URL and they came back with “If you can see this page and still think we’re down, it’s just you.” 🙂
