It is about a month since the Netflix Queue Manager was made available. After some grep-ing of the access logs I’ve assembled some basic stats. These are based on unique IP addresses, meaning that people using the Manager from multiple computers or have shifting IP addresses are counted multiple times. Since there is no tracking of Netflix accounts this is the only way to guess the number of users.
Since May 27 436 people have used the Manager on the Netflix Queue page.
More interesting is that since June 4th 473 people have installed the Manager Greasemonkey script. Since the Greasemonkey version invokes the standard script it means there are a bunch of people who installed it but never used it.
Crunching the numbers a little further we see that of the 436 actual users:
- 277 have used the Greasemonkey version at least once. That’s 63.5% of the users.
- 159 have installed and used only the bookmarklet version. That’s 36.5% of the users.
And of the curious yet timid:
- 196 have installed, but never used the Greasemonkey version. So 41.4% of Greasemonkey users like to install but not use scripts.
- 70 have tried to use the bookmarklet on some page, but never on the Queue page. Those are people who just clicked on the bookmarklet link but never installed it, or search robots, etc.
