In 2002, TypingWeb became a pay-per-license web application, no longer offering free accounts. In 2005, TypingWeb started offering packages for schools and corporations to teach students and employees to type in an easy to manage group admin environment. In October 2007, TypingWeb went completely free to individual users,[5] following the increasing trend of free online applications.
