AR\ Instapaper – Google Analytics removed

ver. 2018.9601.4.8

Google Analytics completely removed

AcceleReader used Google Analytics to track which settings and functions were being used – to help focus developer attention on what was being used.

I have now completely removed all analytics tracking from the extension. The only network requests the extension now makes are to the Instapaper servers. Other than that, the extension does not use any network requests, ensuring any user data stays on the computer.

This also means that I shall have no insight into features that are popular, or broken. So, please share your views using the feedback link in the extension (or by going here).

Minor updates & bug fixes

Made a few minor changes and fixed a few bugs. The two visible changes are:

Sorting tasks by due date or priority

When sorting tasks by due date in ascending order, tasks with no due dates used to list above tasks with no due dates. This is now fixed – in both ascending and descending sort orders, tasks with no due date will appear below tasks with any assigned due date.

When sorting by priority, ascending and descending conform to the importance of the character. E.g, when ordered in descending priorities, tasks with priority A will come before B, and before tasks with no priority.

Task count in status bar

When task list is filtered, the count of visible and total tasks will always be visible in the status bar. E.g.: “Showing 5 of 69 tasks

Clutter Free - Quick tab search from address bar / omnibox

Tab search from the address bar

Just type ‘cf‘ followed by space (or tab), and type in your search term.

The search results are updated as you type. Selecting a suggestion in the list switches to that tab.

Details

  1. Quick tab search looks for keywords in open URLs, and website titles, across all open windows
  2. Search results list pinned tabs at the top, and newer tabs before older tabs
  3. Clutter Free can start a Google search for the search keywords, if no matching open tabs are found

Currency conversion in autoConvert

Currency conversion in autoConvert seems to have stopped working.

It appears that the (free) API that the extension uses to fetch currency rates was removed. This has broken currency conversion.

I’ll try and look for a new (free) currency rates API tomorrow (Monday, 22 January). If one is available, I’ll update the extension with it. If I can’t find one, I may have to remove currency conversion entirely.

I’ll update here on the blog on the progress.

Cheers!
