Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great, unobtrusive way to help Mozilla see what and how Firefox and its add-ons are used. I am glad to contribute what I can to help Firefox evolve and remain the best web browser on the market.

To help Firefox development install it, it's transparent, you will don't know about that.

CPU/Ram impact? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is not a scientific assessment, but I think this addon has been causing me performance grief. I just disabled the extension and firefox is working as normal. Before that, I got cpu spikes of a few minutes while the browser wasn't redrawn and ram was growing.

Works great, although not with the latest builds as previous people have said. Please note that this is caused by bug 413900, hence the maxversion on this addon has not been increased to 3.0pre.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2a6).

@Edstorm: I can already see the headlines if Mozilla would make this extension a part of Firefox. Then Mozilla would by default spy on its users.
I could imagine that not many people see that the difference between spying and actually helping out development.
Therefore it is better when Mozilla distributes it in this way, so a user chooses whether one would help development or not.

But for now I am wondering how to install this extension on a Firefox nightly.

It kinda sucks that this extension can't be used with the Firefox 3 betas...

I mean, most of the people in the know, who would install this kind of thing, are on the betas, right?

Help Firefox become better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Seems to work fine and you are helping Firefox improve while not even noticing!

Hmm.. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

While I do see the good point about this extension in helping to further devlelop firefox, I can't help but wonder why doesn't Mozilla come with the extension at the start in the first place?

For example, Talkback comes installed, but you could remove it. Similarly, Spectator can be approved by Mozilla and remain installed unless a person removes it.

Just my opinion.

spectator works well Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension works as described, but has some broken collectors having to do with 3.0b4. No issues, great info for mozilla! Where can I see my data?

Works great but needs a friendly interface Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm happy to be able to contribute to the mozilla usability effort. Seems to work reliably. I hope in the next version you can add an option that allows me to see a simplified view of exactly what is being collected - about:metrics is fine but it's all a bunch of numbers.
