This feature isn't available at the moment, but it might get added in a future release if enough people would find it useful

Just installed and wishing I had speed in kbs and mbs, since that's what my ISP uses in its service plans. And, being 8 times larger, a bits value would at least "feel" more precise than a bytes value (that's precise, not to be confused with accurate). In other words, I would rather work with numbers around 12 than numbers around 1.5.

Obviously I know how to multiply by 8, but it would be so much more convenient if I didn't have to.

Note that speedtest.net gives you the choice of bytes or bits. Why not be consistent with them and Burger King?

Win7's search can't find that file.

Anyway, I'm guessing this change would multiply all numbers by 8 but still label them as bytes. Not really what I had in mind.

It's probably not worth starting another war with England, but I wanted to cast my vote for it.
