BOINC Stats v0.6.1 has been submitted to Mozilla Update. It may take a couple weeks before it becomes available via the normal extension updates. For those who don't want to wait it has been uploaded to mozdev. It's download page is here. It may not be available on all download mirrors yet. If the file isn't found on that mirror please try again. Download servers are randomly selected from the mirror list and the update intervals vary.

The new version adds World Community Grid to the list of projects for which stats are displayed.

Description:

BOINC Stats is a Firefox extension that displays a user's total and recent average credit in the status bar for BOINC distributed computing projects in which they are actively participating. It may not display stats for projects where a user's Recent Average Credit is zero. BOINC User Total stats are displayed at Firefox startup.

User Options:
Update frequency (minimum 2 hours), display or not display project icons, 12 or 24 hour time format, and selection of projects for which stats are displayed.

BOINC Stats is currently capable of displaying a user's stats for:

BURP Chess960 Climate Change ClimatePrediction
Einstein@Home HashClash Leiden Classical LHC Alpha
LHC@Home MalariaControl Orbit@Home Pirates@Home
Predictor@Home PrimeGrid QMC@Home RALPH@Home
Rosetta@Home Seasonal Attribution Seti@Home
Seti Beta/Astropulse SIMAP SZTAKI Desktop Grid
TANPAKU uFluids@Home World Community Grid XtremLab

Notes:

BOINC Stats uses xml data provided periodically by the individual projects. BOINC Stats and SETI User Stats cannot both be used. If you are using the SETI User Stats extension please uninstall it and restart Firefox before installing BOINC Stats.

Suggestion:

For ease of project identification enable the "Display project icon" option.

It looks like the web page

It looks like the web page says v0.6.2 is available, and this is causing broken links. I was still able to find the file and install it, but you might want to check on this. Thanks for the extension.

Sorry for the problems. Mirror synch seems to be delayed for some reason. I uploaded v0.6.2 a couple hours ago and am waiting for it to show up on the mirrors. I had planned to post a message to several fora when it did to notify users that a new version is available. I've made a change to the installation page and from this point on it will have links to both the current version and the previous version.

BOINC Stats v0.6.2 adds RieselSieve, Rectilinear Crossing Number, and Spinhenge@Home to the list of projects for which stats are displayed.

BOINC Stats v0.6.3 corrects a

BOINC Stats v0.6.3 corrects a problem with Spinhenge@Home stats. Normally downloading via this page results in the random assignment of a download mirror. Unfortunately though the file was uploaded over seven hours ago it hasn't made it to all of the mirrors yet. The only server I've been able to download the file from is the Oregon State mozdev mirror.
