When you visit Hacker Typer you can select how your screen will appear and set the typing speed using the options available on the start screen. Click on Hack when you are ready to begin.

Once you have clicked through you get a fresh, clean screen and a blinking cursor to start with. Just begin typing with any combination of keys or hold down a single key such as the Spacebar and watch the hacker code pour forth!
