Is there any application out there that does a comprehensive internet 'net' or perceived speed benchmark. For example, it might download a few files, load a largish number of random web pages, log into a mail server, doing associated DNS lookups, perhaps exercising the browser cache, and anything else that affect the users perceived internet speed? Then hopefully point to possible problem areas..

I find that just doing a download/upload speed test is totally unrelated to how fast the net feels. I may do a normal speed test and get 20 Mbps/2 Mbps and the net can seem to drag, whereas another time I might feel like the net is flying but a standard speed test only shows 8/0.5.

There are computer benchmark programs that test the computer speed by running spread sheets, paint programs, excerpts of games, etc and then giving one result. Anything equivalent for the internet?
