Several days ago I went to go to a popular site and could not get the page to load. I later found out that there was an outage.
Following that experience, I started thinking it would be nice that a person could go to a centralized location to determine what sites are working and what sites are not. This is when CurrentlyDown dropped into my lap.
CurrentlyDown lets you check the current status of a website and explore its outage history. It can be very helpful when you want to find out whether a website is down for everyone or just for you. In addition you can see availability history for any date, see when a website was down and how long. CurrentlyDown also posts screenshots and the cause(s) of an outage whenever possible.
