Monkeybread software has launched HTML Timer, which shows how long HTML files and images will take to down or upload.

The program will also scan for broken links, and can check files and images at different modem and ISDN speeds. It calculates these times at a speed of 80 per cent of normal bandwidth.

HTML Timer will scan all HTML files and frames in HTML files, and can recognize all images, using the IMG SRC tag. The software can also recognize Java applets. It will display a list of all files checked, a list of all links, and can check all non-relative links - for example http, ftp or mailto tags.

It can be downloaded from Monkeybread and will run on Mac OS 7.6 or later.
