  1. Like it a lot dude, saves having to load up the SLT Usage Page login, click and scroll all the way down. :)

    Wish the icon "style" looked a bit more like the firefox bookmark icon. Simple Black & White, seems kind of outta place on the toolbar.

    An icon which signifies usage, like pie chart or bars or something like that. Just a thought...

    Tried a google image search for "data usage icon" has a couple of ideas.

    Kinda like this? Signifies Upload/Download.

  2. Hey GK, thanks a lot for trying it out and most importantly giving suggestions! Yeah I know the icon is totally out of place. The one you suggested looks really cool. I can bundle it up as an update to the add-on. BTW can you help me to get the icon reduced to the appropriate dimensions without loosing the transparency or its quality? Because I'm not that of a graphics person, to be honest I don't even have Photoshop installed :)

  3. Useful addon.
    But need one minor update. I noticed that the usage meter only updates value after I restart firefox(close and reopen) It should fetch data and update info when the "usage meter button" is clicked; not after a browser restart.
    Could you fix this?
    Thanks.

    1. Mmm that's new. Is it because you normally hibernate? Anyway thanks a lot for finding it :) I will investigate.

  5. It will be more useful if there is an option to know the peak & off-peak usage separately. that is 8.00am to 12pm midnight and 12pm midnight to 8.00am.
    pls consider it for next update...

      Delete
