Mr. Uptime for Firefox 3.5 released

For those of you who use our Mr. Uptime Firefox extension, we just wanted to let you know that we have updated it for Firefox 3.5.

The update was submitted to Mozilla last Friday and is pending approval, but you can already download it directly from the Mr. Uptime website. (It’s free, as it always has been.)

For those of you who don’t know what Mr. Uptime is, it’s a Firefox extension from us here at Pingdom that will tell you when a broken website is working again.

For example, it’s not uncommon that websites go down if they are popular on Digg, Reddit, Slashdot, Twitter and other social media sites (the so-called Digg or Slashdot effect, and these days also the Twitter effect). If you come upon a site that is down, instead of forgetting about it, you can ask Mr. Uptime (with just a mouse click) to tell you when the site is back up. That simple.

You can learn more at the Mr. Uptime website, where you can also get the latest version.

Mr. Uptime has proven to be quite a popular Firefox extension among social media-savvy Web users. If you want to make sure to never miss interesting content online just because a site happens to be down when you visit it, give it a shot!

Need an update for 3.6 and higher! Why is it so version sensitive?

@ID: We'll update it soon. Just need to check a few dependencies. The reason why it's "version sensitive" is just the way Mozilla handles plugins.
