Dzone: Digg for developers

Dzone
I found a new site for called  Dzone  today. Unlike Digg its focuses on programming, coding tools, processes and practices. The feature which made this site uniquely stand out among the other 100 digg replica's is its ability to take "webshots" of the URL being linked which is shown as a thumbnail.

dzone fills a void which in a developers life which sites like digg and slashdot can't fulfill because of their unfocused news items. Lately digg has been trying hard to develop more focused pages, but its no where close to what developers are currently looking for.

Flashy Speed test



There are tons of speedtesting tools out there. But here is one you might not have seen before. Its called speedtest.net. Whats cool about this site is that it allows you to test your bandwidth against multiple server in US and Europe instead of just one.
