AMO Add-on Review Status

The AMO editors have been hard at work, reviewing 255 add-on updates and submissions in the 2 weeks before Firefox 3’s launch, and 238 updates/submissions between launch day (Tuesday) and Sunday.

There are currently 228 updates in the queue and 373 new nominated add-ons. There are normally about 10 new add-ons submitted to AMO every day, but since the release there have been 20-40 every day. Similarly, there are normally about 60-70 updates to existing add-ons every day, but since the launch there have been 100 – 150 every day.

Below is a graph of submission and update rates since 2004, hitting a peak of 235 updates on the day after release and 42 new submissions 2 days after release. You can also see a zoomed-in version of the graph. Astute observers will also notice a large increase in submissions in November 2006, when Firefox 2 was released.

A huge thanks to all of the editors who have donated their time and effort to make sure Firefox 3’s add-ons experience is great. Below is the list of editors with the number of reviews they’ve done since March 2007.

  • Well, Mel Reyes, Oliver Saier and Pavel Cvrcek together made twice more reviews then rest of reviewers together. You should honour them (and not by some cheap t-shirt), because without them Firefox 3 user experience was much worse.

    Great work, guys!

  • I was an add-on reviewer for a short time back before Remora and I tested and reviewed more than 50 add-ons in my first month. I was very thorough and tested add-ons in different versions of Firefox (or other Moz apps.) with different profiles with one being new/clean and another containing many add-ons so I can certainly appreciate the work that the AMO editors do especially for add-ons that requires creating accounts and adding content such as bookmarks or videos.

    I would think this would be better posted on the addons site, maybe under a section on reviewing.

    Hi Jusstin

    Your password exporter is reeeeally great buddy.Hats-off to you.
    I got another idea.Can you include “reset master password” option in it?I recently forgot my master password N had to do it manually by following instructions in this thread

    But thanks to you I had saved all my passwords N could import them in a few secs.Keep up the good work.

    Interesting. What is the number of add-ons submitted daily now? Has it died down a bit since FF 3 has been out for a while?
