Alexa Toolbar


CC97

Recommended Posts

This is off-topic, but it's my board :P

What the toolbar does is track webpage stats and rankings based on what sites the users of the toolbar visit. Why I'm posting this is because I've taken a massive hit on the Alexa rankings (from 40,000th overall in October 2004 to 480,000th overall today).

If anyone wants to use it while browsing the page, I won't complain, Alexa Toolbar Download

So I'm curious if anyone who posts here uses the Alexa Toolbar for Internet Explorer? or if anyone used to use it and no longer does -- I need to know why I'm so unpopular now or was so popular at one point :)

Thanks!

That's the real question.

Firefox!

I hear ya, I'm Mozilla myself -- perhaps that's what happened, everyone switched to mozilla and it stopped keeping track :)

I have never heard of Alexa, and you fools with your firefox make me laugh. IE has 90% of webpages written for it. WHy would you use somehting that doesn't support many web features? WHy? Because you are silly.

Most spyware and adware tools like Spybot Search & Destroy and Adaware identify Alexa as spyware. That may be the reason you're seeing decreased usage.

ooooh

thanks for the tip

IE doesn't conform to web standards. 99% of the pages I view with Firefox have no problems.

I'm not silly for using Firefox. I don't like all of those security holes and software that installs itself. Not to mention Firefox is far less bloated and has so many incredible extensions.

Firefox = :notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:

Oh, and Alexa does indeed contain spyware.

99% of the pages you view appear correct, because web designers have spent many, many hours designing and redesigning to allow you and your 5% of the browser market to see what they have created. But many, many features do not function on firefox, they simply downgrade appropriately. You are missing more than you think.

IE is the winner in the browser market. Use firefox if you wish, it may not have 'security holes' but neither does a fully updated version of IE. ANd IE is supported 100% by all web designers and providers.

Looking through your neighbor's window while he browses the internet is better than AOL.

But no, we weren't. We were talking about browsers - the program you use to look at webpages.

And about Alexa. Which I hadnt heard of. I dont much trust off-brand software or plugins, like searchbars. I use google!

Tabbed browsing and all-around superiority to IE makes Firefox my browser of choice. It just seems to work better. The small percentage of sites I've found which don't show properly in Firefox aren't worth visiting.

And yeah, search bars are bad. Firefox allows you to add in-browser search engines for anything from IMDb through to Urbandictionary and anything in between, as well as directly searching Google from the address bar. Last I looked IE couldn't do this.

*yawns*

If I remember correctly, I've never had problems with IE that weren't my own fault anyway.
