Visualize Your Internet Usage

Want a Firefox extension that helps you visualize your Internet usage? Look no further than the Net Usage Item extension. Here are a few more details about it.

The Net Usage Project is aimed at providing internet usage indicators for the Firefox browser. It works by fetching numbers from an XML feed or usage web page provided by the ISP. This project is targeted towards Australian Broadband Users whose broadband connections are encumbered with download (and sometimes upload) limits. However, this meter can be adapted for any country’s ISP who provides a XML usage data feed.
