I’m really glad Ookla made this into a Mac app - I’ve really enjoyed having it on my iPad, and I don’t trust my browser to be an uncompromised environment for testing (far too often there are other web sites open that are resource hogs, and often that’s a moment when I want to see if my computer is bogging, or my line is - so testing from within the browser is a false result).
However, the choice to make this a menubar item is, IMO, a mistake. It essentially forces the test to be modal: I can’t touch ANYTHING else on my Mac while it’s running or it’ll pop the popover back down, and hide the running test, meaning I can’t run it and keep an eye on it while working on something else. I don’t want it running all the time, so I’m not sure what the utility or benefit of having it as a menubar item was intended to be, but I can tell you I’m positive I would rather this be a simple windowed app with standard menus, that launches when I launch it, and quits when I’m done with it via command-q, just like any other app. This is a valuable utility, and I’d like to give it 5 stars, but it’s not SO special that it deserves to be a special snowflake and not be a normal app.
Also, if you’re going to insist on keeping it a menubar app, for heaven’s sake at least put the icon in the right place in the menubar. It’s too low. Center it properly.
