As with everything else, touch typing improves with regular practice. TypeRacer is a browser-based multiplayer typing game that can provide such practice - it claims to be the very first. Rather than typing repetitive patterns (gh gh gh, etc) or randomly generated sequences of letters, TypeRacer presents users with short passages from popular songs, films, and books. As users accurately enter text, they advance a small icon of a vehicle along a race track, racing against other users working on the same text. TypeRacer keeps detailed typing statistics so that users may track their progress over time. Users may also contribute additional passages to TypeRacer's collection of exercises. TypeRacer works in any modern browser.
