For me it has been on about two sites that I frequent for specific
information on a regular basis.  As Leonid, others and myself have
indicated it is very inefficient because it pretty much has to be
customized for a particular site, or even a single document within
a site.  It's worth depends on how much one doesn't want to fire up
MSIE, and how often and how much the information is needed, I guess.
