WASP v0.31 is out

I decided to do a quick release of WASP because a couple of people inquired about the new features.

Getting it or upgrading

Three easy ways to upgrade or get it:
  1. Visit and click on the large "Download" button
  2. If you already have WASP, the easiest way to upgrade is simply to do "Tools/Add-ons" from the Firefox menu, then click on the "Find Updates" button.
  3. Alternatively, if you already have WASP installed, Firefox will eventually trigger an automatic update and prompt you to confirm.

New & improved

Here's whats new and enhanced in v0.31:
  • Cool! There is now a special handling for Google Website Optimizer. If the page is an original page, a variation page or the conversion page, it will be indicated in the sidebar.
  • Cool! Google Analytics handling of cookies is a bit special, to make it easier, they are now expanded into a subtree.
  • Cool! When Omnniture SiteCatlyst or Google Analytics are detected, each variable now has a short description of its usage. Those descriptions will be improved in coming releases to link to articles and knowledge base. I'm still looking for a complete list of Google Analytics QueryString parameters and their use...
  • New: Added piwik and phpmyvisites
  • New: Detects the new Tongji Baidu, a Google equivalent from China
  • Fixed: Fixed CrazyEgg detection
  • Improved: Increased tracking cache from 5 to 7, track only what appears to be a public host, strip www from tracking host
  • Bug fix: Right-click on status bar doesn't toggle sidebar (show pop-up menu)
  • ... and VisualSciences/WebSideStory HBX is now called Omniture SiteCatalyst HBX :)
