Most Popular Downloads on this Site
We used to say that anything with “Google Maps” in the title was a sure-fire winner when it came to people downloading examples – after all Google Maps used to be so easy to get into, and so many people just “get” why a map is useful, that it was absolutely the go-to example. But is it still the case? Google APIs now need a Billing Account, and an API key, which in turn needs to have domain restrictions, and other administrative elements. It’s not quite as easy as it used to be.
So we set out to look at the different examples that have been downloaded on this site. And here are the results. Interesting. Under the graph, some comments and remarks which might explain some of the data.

Didn’t expect that one to be in there at all!
Same for this one. Maybe Search is the new Map?
Ah, see, the combined score is going to be huge.
Told you. Google Maps reigns supreme!
Wow. This one isn’t even really an extension!
Everyone loves planes. I get that.
Everyone hates D3. I get that.
Not as much fun as airplanes.
Wow. This is the free alternative to Google Maps. I would have imagined this to be more popular.
As you can see from the Chart, Google Maps is hanging on – but only just! It’s ex aequo with the Search Extension. However if you pool together all the Google Maps stuff, it completely wipes the floor with the competition. Definitely the most popular downloads.
