Measurement Lab


This project will build a new software client for M­-Lab testing by expanding the testing capabilities of the platform and also developing a browser extension or similar software integration for one or more of the popular open source browsers.

Once deployed, this tool will enable any user to become a regular and reliable part of the M­Lab community. It will also give researchers and policymakers a tool for real­time monitoring of censorship activity with a capability to zoom in on particular user communities on particular networks in particular geographies.
