Despite their reputation for being boring, most people are interested in statistics as long as there are a few about themselves. About:me is a Firefox add-on that provides users with detailed statistics on their Internet use, including sites visited, browsing activity and download reports.

About:me is very discreet, even for an add-on. In fact, it is so discreet that I had to browse the application's comments before I figured out how to actually access the stats! It turns out that you just have to enter 'about:me' into the address bar and the stats page will automatically appear. It has been suggested that you save the page as a bookmark for easy access.

Once you are looking at about:me's statistics, you will be able to find information about your most-visited sites, hourly browsing activity and download statistics. The download statistics are further broken down into the size and speed of downloads, the type of media and your download trends.

About:me's information is accurate and well-laid out. Your favorite websites are clickable links for easy access, and the information is updated quickly to reflect your activity. That said, the add-on has no other features or functions, and some users may find it a little lacking. Remember that about:me is rumored to be included as a default feature in future versions of Firefox.

About:me provides detailed browsing statistics for Firefox users, but not much else.
