Thanks for the compliments, it really does make a big difference in my motivation levels . The next version of DataFox is already in the works, this version supports MTNL and will have some multi window efficiency enhancements.
The corresponding thread for MTNL is here: http://broadbandforum.in/index.php?showtopic=11211
Every now and then someone does ask for an Opera widget, so I am considering it now - but I'd like to know if you guys actively use other Opera widgets?
I developed the Firefox extension because it seemed really appropriate to see the bandwidth used in my FF status bar. It's also easily accessible.
When you consider a widget - any widget for that matter, it isn't a part of the browser UI, it's going to be on your desktop - it isn't really a part of Opera, other than the fact that Opera is providing the widget engine - and it closes when Opera closes. In this case there isn't really any Opera browser integration, which is disappointing - btw, Opera does not allow the creation of FF like extensions - in an effort to closely control the quality of the browser.
This is why I said above that I'd rather develop a Konfabulator (or Y! Widget Engine) widget.
What are your thoughts on this subject?
excellent work... but today its not working.its showing DataFox: Usage Data N/Ai tried it on all the ip addresses below.the sites are working though if u check usage through browser.10.240.128.19510.240.144.19510.240.240.19510.240.89.19910.240.43.21610.240.16.19510.240.0.195plz reply
They seem to be working for me now. I noticed that one or two of the servers are throwing up, even when you visit the site in the browser - so it seems like a temporary glitch with BSNLs servers.
For example, I just tried these 3 IPs and it works fine:
Only if DataFox is not working for you
Users who use the default redirect option (see login dialog) might want to select override and select one of the above IPs.
If you want to stick with the default redirect option:
You could try restarting the browser, the extension will hopefully get the IP of a working server when you restart. (Redirect IPs obtained from sancharnet.in are cached for a browsing session).
Let me know if any of you still experience issues,
