nice job... also good to be able to see the network totals of ethernet and airport etc.

I like it but every once in a while, it pops up in activity monitor w/o dashboard active. I am mostly okay with widgets sucking RAM (this gets about 8mb) but CPU is not acceptable.

Of course, it isn't as bad as some others.

Perfect app, just what I was looking for.

A minor design issue is the 'close' button is located away from the widget, as opposed to sitting on the top right corner as per Apple guidelines.

Would it be possible to add Network name on there also?

A very nice widget though, will be a permanent feature of mu dash.

Hey, looks like we had the same idea. =)
Nice interface, I like the design. Freedom of choice is the keyword.

Just been using NetStat, think there's a problem with the little 'i' button that flips the widget. It's not very responsive and sometimes persists when it's supposed to have disappeared...

I agree with the 'i' flip thing - its kinda not quite center in the title bar. Personally I think it'd work better in the bottom right hand corner as typical apple design standards... Still love this widget though. smiley

I love this widget - it shows me how much bandwidth I truly do waste (in the vicinity of 20GB in *and* out/day). On second thought, that actually is really rather terrifying.

The choice of white and grren lettering on a black background is OK, but the thinness of the typeface causes the information to become "mottled" and therefore difficult to read.

Functionality is great. Version 2.1
