My extension reached 1,000 installs… just in time for extinction
27 February, 2011 § 1 Comment
This week the Multiple Monitor Full Screen extension hit a milestone: 1,000 installs. The install rate is now around 140 per week, which has decreased from around 350-400 per week at its peak.
Much of this is likely to do with the new version of Adobe’s Flash plugin, 10.2, which added support for full screen with multiple monitors.
While it makes me sad to see that less people will want to use my software, I am happy that the overall user experience will improve for all everyone.
So where to go from here?
There are a couple different directions that I could take.
- Add support for HTML5 video, as the current draft of the standard leaves out full screen, and allows browser implementers freedom in determining how full screen can be accessed.
- Or… call my work done and move on
What would you do? HTML5 could be a great feature to add, however not that many sites use it yet.
