SwiftKit News

2 Million Downloads & SwiftKit Chrome



Today marks another significant milestone for us. According to our ever-dandy download counter, we have just surpassed 2 million downloads since the client was released in late 2008. As you can imagine, that is one heck of an accomplishment.

SwiftKit has always remained the top of its kind, with nothing even coming close to competing. We have never paid for advertising or marketing, and have gained our user base from word-of-mouth alone. With that, we would like to thank you all for sticking with us throughout our life, and wish you do so in the future.

As a little treat, we would like to formally introduce one project we have been slowly working on, which is SwiftKit Chrome. It is a Chrome extension which will attempt to be a port of the client in the Chrome browser. Right now it’s in a very early public alpha test available for testing here. Note that it isn’t even close to being finished, as we still have a lot to work on.

In other news, you may have noticed the internal news page changing layouts lately. We have been playing around with different layouts that helps to work with us and the users better. Bear with us as we find one that works best. :)

Thanks for your loyalty. Happy ‘scaping!

Just for the record, I don't know if anyone is reading this, but if you go to the official swiftkit website, and go to "about", it says:

Over 1 million downloads. 50,000 users daily. Are you one?

I just thought this would be a nice occasion to change that ;)

@Catsgivemeboners:
Uhmm, i dont get it, what's wrong with the current combat calculator? It's just one click away.


#60
Catsgivemeboners @ 04 2010 02:52 am

Just an idea, make a "combat calculator lookup by the alog, clan, etc things are by the highscores table. I know that the highscores table does say combat, but some people have 1-56 def, 60- attack, etc..

\"Btw, my favorite function has to be the Boss-button...
For those who dont know it, press ctrl+f1 when your boss or any other \"dominant figure\" steps in. Bye bye, SK.
When they\'re gone, press ctrl+shift+f1. Hello again, SK.
Brilliant. =] \"

Never knew that... EPIC...

Gratz btw, thanks for SwiftKit being free!

Btw, my favorite function has to be the Boss-button...
For those who dont know it, press ctrl+f1 when your boss or any other "dominant figure" steps in. Bye bye, SK.
When they're gone, press ctrl+shift+f1. Hello again, SK.

Jagex will never support 3rd party clients officially because they have no control over it.


#44
TenchiLAfire look it up @ 25 2010 11:34 pm

does this mean that jagex can now fully allow this to be used with runescape with no problems?
