Is there a way I can get information on how fast the person viewing my sites internet speed is, so that i can only run certain javascript, jquery, or ajax functions if there are at a certain speed?  Ideally with one of the aforementioned languages rather than a server-side language.

You can do this with javascript.

Check out this page for a working example:

This worked great in Safari and FF, but gave me an error in IE6/7:
'bytesLoaded' is undefined

Yeah I noticed that also. Seems onProgress is not supported by IE :(

I'll see if I can dig up an alternative.. if not at least you got it working for all other browsers except IE...
