"From the 'What Do You Click?' files:
"Which button in the open source Firefox web browser is the one
most clicked by users on Windows, Mac and Linux?
"The answer to that question and more has been addressed in a
new Mozilla Firefox Main Window Usage Study. The study data was
collected on an opt-in basis from nearly 10,000 users of the
Mozilla Test Pilot addon which surveys Firefox usage.
"Mozilla developers aren't just looking to gather statistics for
statistics sake either, the goal is to gain a better understanding
of browser usage in an effort to provide a better experience in the
upcoming Firefox 4 browser. In an effort to help visualize and
display the data, Mozilla developers have also overlaid the study's
data as a heatmap on top of a Firefox browser. A Heatmap graph
visually indicates how active certain areas of a map - in this case
a web browser - are in terms of usage."
