Our Review:

VisualRoute Lite is an excellent route tracer when your goal is to identify response time issues. The very effective route graph display is great in identifying those hops that slow the round trip time down.

VisualRoute has been available for many years now and I used it a lot in my job. It is based on Java (so you need a runtime version to run it) but if you don't want to install it locally, you can also use the online service that is basically doing the same.

Unfortunately, the attractive world map trace is disabled in the Lite version, as well as the list view. That the latter is not available in the Lite version I can't understand and is a drawback for me. But still, the Lite version is great value for free and surely worth a try.
