Datafox:Firefox addon Bandwidth Usage Monitor for BSNL and MTNL users

Datafox addon firefox BSNLWell this is one of the coolest ever Firefox addons i ever saw,when i used to be a BSNL 500 Plan user i just had 1 GB limit then,so i had to control when i downloaded stuff and all,no matter how much i tried limiting it it always went passed the 1 GB limit and BSNL used to charge rs 1.20 for 1 MB extra then.Then i decided to change to BSNL Unlimited and though the speed is a bit slow than other connections i feel this was the right one for me,now i Download close to 10 to 20 GB/Month.So What i meant was that,i know a lot of people who gets worried of Broadband bills going to high than what if you got a software which allowed you to see your download upload status while you are browsing.Well that's exactly what Datafox addon does,it supports BSNL and MTNL customers for now,lets just hope it reaches out to more Broadband plans.I came across this addon a few weeks ago on an online forum,but postponed the post just for firefox 3 to release i just wanted to make sure it worked with Firefox 3,and yes it does.From now on you wont have to log in to the Bsnl page to know how much you have bandwidth you have left and all.
