Greasemonkey Usage by Firefox Version, Oct 2011

Just like August's post, here's a graph of what versions of Firefox people use Greasemonkey with.

You can open the spreadsheet for the raw data and a larger graph.

Takeaways seem to be not a lot has changed, besides some up-and-down for each rapid release version since then (6 came and went, with 7 replacing it).  Firefox 3.6 users are still just shy of three quarters of a million.  Firefox versions too old for the newest version of Greasemonkey are still hanging in at almost a quarter million, and just shy of 50,000 users are running a too-new version of Firefox, probably with Add-on Compatibility Reporter.

Greasemonkey 0.9.13 beta1

Greasemonkey release 0.9.13 should include complete automatic in-the-backgroudn updating of user scripts.  As yet there are no docs for script authors but the short version is: put an @version in your metadata, and increase it when there is an update.

Greasemonkey 0.9.13 beta1 is now available for testing.  It's in the Mozilla Add-ons beta channel. Open the "Development Channel" drop down at the bottom of the page, and click the "Add to Firefox" button.

Please report an issue or find us at the mailing list to provide feedback on beta versions.
