Alexa for your Favorite Browser

November 8, 2010

Since the foundation of Alexa was laid in 1996, It has been a major factor on which the popularity of a website depends upon. According to Alexa:

In addition to the Alexa Crawl, which can tell us what is on the Web, Alexa utilizes web usage information, which tells us what is being seen on the web. This information comes from the community of Alexa Toolbar users. Each member of the community, in addition to getting a useful tool, is giving back. Simply by using the toolbar each member contributes valuable information about the web, how it is used, what is important and what is not. This information is returned to the community with improved Related Links, Traffic Rankings and more. The Alexa toolbar is a program written by Alexa Internet that users install into the browser. Every time the user changes pages, the Alexa toolbar communicates with Alexa servers to retrieve information which is then displayed in the toolbar.

Today, three most popular browsers across the web are, undoubtedly: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. That’s why Alexa offers an extension/toolbar to only these three Browsers.

    I’m already using Google and Yahoo as my browser so I don’t think that I would be needing another one.
