200,000 Firefox Users Update Their Plugins

Mozilla recently announced the launch of a “plugin check” page (pictured below), allowing users to see a list of their installed plugins and whether or not any updates are needed.  This comes on the heels of a program where we successfully helped more than 10,000,000 Firefox users with a non-current version of Flash get to Adobe’s download/update page.

Now that this new program has been live for about a week, we thought we’d check the numbers (cumulative since last week):

plugin_check_numbers

Considering that this page hasn’t been directly pushed to users, these numbers are significant.  There are a couple spots within mozilla.com where users can click to find this page, but otherwise, our web analytics reporting tells us that about 90% of the traffic has been coming from news and technology related web sites.

Next, you may be wondering where people ventured upon clicking to “Update” or “Research”.  Here’s a breakdown:

We’ll continue to keep an eye on these numbers, and perhaps more excitedly, there are plans to soon integrate this feature into the browser itself.

    Not reminded of Adobe flashing BS, not duped into downloading
    McAfee sneaky software.

    What a happy lot! Don’t you wish you were one of them?
