Now typing is addictive (and fun) thanks to Typeracer

Now here's a sport computer nerds, or anyone who spends all day at their computer, should excel at: competitive typing.

Thanks to a new site called Typeracer, you can practice your typing speed, and more importantly, race against others in real time! You type out quotes from films and can't move on to the next word until you've got the current one correct (annoyingly, I had no trouble with 'exponentially', but 'cooler' caused me to come unstuck... And yes, I was typing a quote from Juno.)

I'm sure Popgadget readers are much more handy with a keyboard than I am: my top speed was a distinctly average 43 words per minute. Give it a try, and let us know your wpm in the comments - if you can tear yourself away once you've started, that is!
