An online typing competition / game, TypeRacer, allows people to race each-other by typing quotes from books, movies, and songs. It is the first multiplayer typing game available via your browser.

Since launching in March 2008, millions of people from all over the globe have completed hundreds of millions of races on typeracer.com, improving their typing speed by as much as 50 words-per-minute. The platform is available in 50 different languages, which means you do not need to be an English speaker to take part in the competition.

TypeRacer School Edition, launched in 2010, aims to be the most fun educational product in the world. Designed for K-12 schools, it leverages the TypeRacer game concept, which turns typing into a sport and makes learning fun.

While educational products that aim to turn learning into fun often miss by miles, TypeRacer seems like a better product than it seems at the first glance. Perhaps it does not look great, but it gets the job done, it helps you improve your skills in an interesting way.
