NetSpeedMonitor is just a light weight network moniter tool which will show you with your current active network connection details such as uploading (Short for U.) and Downloading (D.). Although it is not a big deal to do this, it still can accellerate your work via showing these data in your Windows’ Taskbar (Yes, Winodws is the only platform that NetSpeedMonitor supports.)
