    Free 5 Second Online Site and Header Check Service

    newsreports.org is hosting a quick online site check
    tool as a public service.

    Very simple to use. Just input the name of the site to
    check.

    The tool returns a site status, the time taken for the
    remote response and the raw http headers.

    Know for sure before posting in the outages section
    whether the problem might be your own connection.

    Very handy for those times when you just need a quick
    check that a site is up and responding.

    The http headers are helpful if you just want a quick
    configuration check.

    The time measurement tells you if the site might be
    heavily loaded at the time of the test.

    A great tool to bookmark for help desk technicians, to
    feature on your support pages, or to point out to your
    clients.

    No registration, no membership, no money, no limits.
    Just a bookmark.

    Remember, you might not need it today. But, it's going
    to save you a lot of headaches someday. So remember to
    bookmark the site.

    Try it now at newsreports.org

    Exactly

    The goal is to make it so light and fast that people get in the habit of using it all the time, even if they are on the go with a mobile. Notice how the text is constrained in width? People will accept scrolling down but not sideways.

    As for the black background, well it had to be something, and it's easier on the eyes than white.
