Collusion for Chrome

On April 22, 2012

Collusion for ChromeDisclaimer: Half my blogging these days, it’d seem, has to do with usage stats. What can I say, I’m obsessed with numbers and have been since I could reel off the career pitching and hitting lines of “Three Finger” Brown and “Shoeless” Joe Jackson as a kid. I should also note that all the usage stats come from Google and Mozilla (not us!) but are nonetheless anonymous, to the best of my knowledge.

I mentioned (here, too) that, five days post launch, Collusion for Chrome had scored 20,000 installs, a 5-star rating, 10,000 video views, and 98% video likes. After a whole week, we landed on some nice, (almost) round numbers:

  • 29,440 installs
  • a 5-star rating
  • 15,586 video views
  • 99% video likes

And we racked up some sweet press coverage:

If you’ve already added or reviewed Collusion for Chrome, thank you. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for! You can likewise watch the progress of or contribute to the (open-source) project.

I'm a 57 yr old disabled former schoolteacher w/ very limited tech savvy. I have an "old" pc by most standards and can't afford a new one. Can you or someone help me clean out any worms, viruses, etc. that may be on my pc?  I live on a very small monthly SS check. Sorry to post this on a public place.

Hello Brian,

Since the installation of your extension on Chrome, the browser has started to freeze while loading pages with flash based content. After trying for a around a minute or so, the browser simply provides the user with the option to kill the page.

Considering that your extension otherwise improves the browsing experience in at least a few different ways, I would highly appreciate your investment of time and effort in resolving this bug, or at least providing the users with a way to resolve the issue on their own.
