Hi

Chrome extension which allows you to right click on selected text and search on multiple sites at the same time.

First month's stats (6/6 to 7/6)

I have a full month of stats to analyze now, so here's what I know so far:

The extension has been downloaded 61 times from Google's Web Store and 79 from chromeextensions.org.

Its background page has been loaded 4,068 -it means 4,068 Chome browsers where opened with my extension installed- but only 522 click events where registered: those are the actual times my extension has been used. This means a 13% of actual usage... still can't tell if this is reasonable or not.

As for the most used search engines:
I've stripped all the querystring parameters in order to compile different implementations for the same Search Engine (for expample, some people send sort parameters on some of their Search Queries).
I guess I should also group those like google.it + google.ro + google.com.uy but it doesn't make much of a difference, right?
As you can see, IMDB is the winner this time, but in general terms, the extension seems to be used more for translation than from anything else.

Well, here's the list:

  1. How does one disable this "phone home" behavior?

  2. Haven't thought of that... I guess I can easily add an option to disable it on next build.

    Anyways, just in case you where wondering, all info is anonymous and I don't really know who's looking for what. It only tracks the search engine definition but not the actual query.

    Thanks for using it.

  3. Hi Ajith, as of today, you can turn off the tracking of search engines usage on the options page.
    Hope that was what you wanted.
    Thanks again for using it.

  4. Forgot to mention, you need versio n 0.1.6 or higher to do this.
