NetSpeed: Internet traffic monitor

You must use a network traffic monitor if you use internet as regular basis. I got a handy slim network traffic monitor years ago and I am using it from then. I love this applet very much. I add it in my top panel and always be active with it when I surf through online. It is a internet connection indicator, speed indicator, download and upload speed checker. It can show download and uploading speed on top panel.
Netspeed is an applet for the GNOME panel that shows how much traffic occurs on a network device (ethernet card, wireless LAN card, or dial-up).
So, It is a very important tool for everyone. You should use it when you love to hangout online whole day.Internet traffic monitor on Ubuntu Netspeed
