This extension displays the number of downloads GitHub releases have on the releases page. Adds current download counts to the releases page on Github for custom release artifacts using the GitHub API.

GitHub tracks the number of downloads for all assets (files) that are attached to a release, but GitHub currently makes it very hard for users to get at this information.

It....doesn't work? I went on the "Releases" page of multiple projects and nothing showed up. There was ONE SINGLE TIME where a "9" appeared, waaaay off to the right of the name of the package. Then a down arrow waaaay off to the right of *THAT*. Then I refreshed again, and both the 9 and the arrow disappeared, back to displaying nothing. Weird. It doesn't work in Incognito mode, either. Well. Sometimes it does. If I refresh on a Releases page and get lucky, just like in normal browser mode. Overall, it's super buggy to the point where it usually just doesn't do anything.
