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):
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.
