Some derpy numbers

As of this post:

Chrome: 4722
Firefox: 2564
Safari: 531

Chrome: 8026
Firefox: 4025
Safari: 919
Opera: 415

Herp Derp updated

I got around to fixing some annoying bugs in Herp Derp tonight:

  • When loaded via HTTP Secure (HTTPS) Herp Derp now works (thanks for reminding me @Funshine__Bear)
  • Firefox no longer freaks out when there is only one comment
  • YouTube Feather Mode is now supported (thanks @_sjs)

The latest version is available for all browsers and can be downloaded here.
