Dipstick is our award-winning freeware that allows you to quickly evaluate mirror sites and figure out which one is the best suited for download for you at this very moment.

The summary of dipstick features:

Once you find yourself with a list of mirrors you will want to launch dipstick. Dipstick will show up on the screen as a small window, where you can drag’n’drop or copy’n’paste URLs in question (of course you can also enter URLs or hosts manually):

If you drop or paste the HTML selection you will be given the list of links found, so that you can select the ones of interest.

After you provided dipstick with links it will start to evaluate links by pinging the hosts. To prevent you from being bored the rain will go through the dipstick’s window like this:

When dipstick is done checking links it will automatically (unless you turn it off in the options) come up with the fastest mirror, giving you the oportunity to open the URL, copy it to clipboard or examine further locations:
