About:Me – cool Firefox add-on provides charts of your browsing habits


About:Me is a new Firefox add-on which provides a bunch of charts and graphs showing your web browsing habits. If you want to know exactly why you got zero work done yesterday, just type ‘about:me’ into your Firefox address box and watch in stupified glory as graphs detailing 14 hours of Reddit and Hacker News flash onto your screen. Awe inspiring.

 The goal of the about:me page is to give you a more interesting view of statistics about your browser usage. The current version includes graphs that illustrate trends in your browsing and downloads histories. The “Activity Stats” section graphs the websites you visit most, including the individual pages you visit most within each top-level site. This section also graphs your hourly browsing activity, which can reveal patterns in websites you visit most at various times of the day. The “Downloads Stats” section illustrates the distribution of different types of files you download, as well as daily trends in your download activity.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?

  • Great…. Your explanation about this add on matches mine. I can check at the end of the day whether I am productive or not.
