Alexa Toolbar for Firefox

July 20, 2007 by Hari

Alexa is service that collects and shows traffic details about a website. It also has it own ranking system called Alexa Ranking. But, the drawback is that it just counts the number of visitors who visit a website with their Alexa Toolbar installed. And unfortunately, it was available one for Internet Explorer, while majority (about 90%) of the people use Firefox. It remained a drawback for a long time now. And today, they have released their new toolbar for Firefox called Sparky. It looks less like a toolbar. It just adds a menu called “Related Links” and takes up a small space in the Status bar to show the traffic rank and the Reach Graph.

Sparky Features

  • Related Links: Find sites that are similar to the one you are currently visiting.
  • Traffic Trend: A sparkline showing the traffic trend from the last four months.
  • Reach Meter: A neat little indicator that shows the site’s Reach.
  • Traffic Rank: Shows the current site’s Alexa Traffic Rank.

Its really good news for all webmasters. I’m really excited. Lets see how the Ranking of various websites change due to the Firefox effect.
