Here’s a list of 5 typing speed test extensions for Chrome which can be used to check how fast you can type. I already talked about touch typing Chrome extensions, websites and software that’s perfect for learning how to type fast. Now that you’ve used those for a while, you’re probably looking for the best way to test and see how good you’ve become. Following extensions for Chrome will help you figure that out. Ideally you should test your speed before starting exercise and then after, to check what kind of progress you’ve made.
Let’s look at these extensions below.
Typing Speed Test
Typing Speed Test gives you a set of a few dozen words that you need to type as fast as you can without making any errors, because those are going to decrease your accuracy of course.
Test is finished after you’ve successfully completed all the words or after the time’s up. Once one of those two things happens, you’re going to see a report, like the one on the image above. You get the number of words per minute typed, number of characters per minute typed and accuracy.

As far as typing speed test extensions for Chrome goes, this one’s more realistic, because it even includes punctuation marks. Results of the test are changed and displayed for you in real time, in the sidebar, words per minutes, accuracy and also a chart.
