Alexa Rank Display

THIS IS DEPRECATED! PageRank Display provides a link to the Alexa information for the current page that you can use instead.

This extension simply gets the Alexa stats page for the site open in the current tab and extracts the so-called Alexa Rank from it. Upon clicking the extension in the toolbar you are taken to the Alexa stats page for the site where you can get more detailed information.

    I like and use your extension. What does the “h” mean when used with the pagerank number?
