..and I only use my right index finger and my left thumb, index, middle, and ring finger. Anyone else? I mean, it works. My record is 130 wpm with 97% accuracy.
Are you suggesting this site should have been called '8 Fast Fingers'? That wouldn't make sense, especially considering that although you don't personally do it, many others, including myself, use all ten of our digits to cover the keyboard, with our thumbs used to hit the space bar while the other 8 digits cover the rest of the board.

That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that it's ironic how I use a website called "10fastfingers" to type with only like 5 fingers.
You're getting pretty good speed/accuracy when only using half your available fingers/thumbs!
I learnt to touch type when I was a kid at school but I've come to realise that my habits have built up over time and I dominate the keyboard with my second and third fingers on each hand. On my left hand, my third finger often rests on the S and my second finger on the D. On my right hand, my third finger usually rests on the I or K, and my fourth on the O or L. My fourth finger on the right also stretches to where the pinkie should be (eg. I press P with my fourth finger).
Shrug. Bad habit but I'm used to it with the keyboards that I use (eg my Logitech G710).
I only type with my index fingers for the character keys, thumbs for space, and pinkies for shift/backspace. It's pretty inefficient but it's comfortable for me and I average around 110 with decent accuracy, so I've never bothered breaking the old habits.
Well, I type with every finger except my pinky’s, left thumb, and get 90 wpm. The title refers to the majority of the proper typists that use 10 fingers when typing.
Looking forward to tryout the speedtest, and i guess i'll try with all 10 fingers shifting the right and left thumb on spacebar!
