Tonight, people who are living in Europe continentalwill change to DST. Daylight Saving Time can make waking up the morning after “springing forward” or “falling back” the most confusing times of the year. Fortunately, the Internet is now home to an absurdly accurate clock that can instantly put any confusion to rest.
Time.is tells you whether your computer clock is fast or slow — down to ±5 millisecond. Time.is slogan is also so simple and so effective : ‘ Time.is – exact time, any time zone ‘
Though Time.is boasts about being the world’s most accurate web clock, before its latest upgrade, it had been thrown off by as much as 300 milliseconds because of network latency. Now, the site’s accuracy has been significantly improved by using your current location to compensate for the minimum latency of your connection, giving it almost-perfect accuracy. http://time.is/
Advanced users can take advantage of Time.is’s calendar, favorite locations and find the time difference between two locations. The clock is truly global with 7 millon location database — you can adjust the first day of the week (Saturday, Sunday or Monday), the date format and the time format.
