I think that it’s about time for this post so here goes.
GUtil! was born sometime in 2006 and I released the first version (GUtil! 0.4.9.5) on November 3rd 2006, for Firefox 1.5.
At first it was something that I used to speed up access to the Google tools that I was using so I only had a couple of links. Then somebody asked for it and also asked me to add some more things that he used. So I did. And I published it. And more people wanted it. That is all.
I haven’t touched the code since July 30, 2009.I’m not using it anymore. I have restricted my Google usage to Google apps, Picasa and Reader.I don’t care about anything else, nor do I have the time to care about anything else.
– GUtil! has been downloaded 240,651 times
– GUtil! is part of 198 collections on AMO
– GUtil! has 8680 active daily users down from more than 12000
Well, here comes the bad news.
I’m not updating it anymore. I don’t have the time, the patience or the interest to update GUtil! anymore.
If you want to work on it, it’s always been open so go get the source and have a whack!
All the best to whoever wants to continue with GUtil!
