State of the Internet
Nowadays, making sure your website is available and accessible is a given. But making sure your visitors have the best possible experience is equally important: websites perform and appear differently on different browsers. Having a website look the same across browsers and devices has been an ongoing issue for designers all over the world.
Delivering a high-quality site experience means identifying what device and browser your visitors use and ensuring your website appears and functions as intended.
SolarWinds® Pingdom® monitors website incidents and collects browser and device metrics from around the world. Follow along in real-time on the State of the Internet live map.
2019 Ups and Downs
● There were 261 billion uptime tests performed. That’s double the dollar amount of Jeff Bezos’ fortune in 2019. According to Forbes’ list of the World’s Billionaires, he topped it at $131 billion!*
● There was 1.88 billion collective minutes of downtime. That’s enough time to travel in a time machine back to 3,500 years ago!
● We sent approximately 112 million “up” and “down” alerts individually across email, SMS, and chat. That would be a stack of paper almost seven miles high!
Let’s make 2020 the year of a faster and more reliable internet. If you’re not already monitoring your website’s availability and performance, why not see what SolarWinds Pingdom can do?
