Choosing the fastest links

Periodically we test our recommended hyperlinks to make sure they are still valid. The results of the last four tests are represented by four colored dots to the right of each hyperlink. The color coding is:

  • Green means the page was downloaded successfully
  • Yellow means the page took longer than 15 seconds or timed out
  • Red means an error occurred
  • Gray means no data is available for the time period

For more information about an individual link test, hover the mouse cursor over its colored dot.

To save time, choose links with an all-green track record.
