I agree with you about stingy question up voting though.

But entry to the contest requires 6 upvotes, which I am finding really hard to get (I don't have a good way of publicising it). I would hope it isn't judged on votes but on how awesome it is.

@code The issue with XHR is that I run into cross site request problems. Parts of the extension are on a different protocol than the rest of it. In other words, I am not sure if chrome would like it

@code The generation has been improved. It takes slightly longer but the UI now updates... and it requests far more data at once.

@jjnguy The no tags defined error is because you need to define some relevant tags (just the main ones like Javascipt and PHP or something, don't bother adding subtags like [jquery]) on settings page. This is an unfortunate necessity that I never got around to removing because I ran out of time to write the statistics code. I think I wrote some thing on why it works like it does on the wiki

new version up on the site. not very well tested. If you had an older version installed you should regenerate the data by going to your profile page, clicking on the stacked odds tab and pressing "update stacked odds data". The main thing that hasn't been done is the question update number doesn't increase very well.

Thanks for your responses. The current download (r40) has some bugs which are fixed in the svn version. I will put together another download tomorrow. Most issues reported have been fixed.

@code poet. The first issue (Your data on all websites) is fixed in the latest svn version. The second issue I have a bug report filed in chrome's issue tracker.

@code poet thanks for pointing it out though. It wouldn't have occurred to me.

@code poet I will consider doing that when this gets a bit further on in development. It isn't too much of an issue to support multiple builds, one with limited access to only the current sites as there is only one file that needs altering.

It needs the data on all websites as the code has to support all possible, present and future, stack exchange sites. IDK why it wants browsing history, but I will take a look.

@code I don't seem to be having any problems with the latest version :)

comment Soapi.JS : fluent JavaScript client library for the Stack Exchange API
@code poet Sometimes undefined is passed to isArray which causes an error. I changed line 621 to return (obj !== undefined && obj.constructor.toString().indexOf("Array") !== -1); and deleted lines 622 to 629. I don't yet know why undefined was passed to the function. I suspect it is an error in my code.

comment Site in closed beta but api working
+1. To add to your point, what if someone in the beta want to use an app. This decision makes sense.

@code Np. Are you also working on a wrapper around the /sites method? (I may have just missed it in the current version)
