Unlike other browser miners this one does NOT use CoinHive. Instead you will mine with supportxmr.com! This means that you only pay 0.6% fee on your withdrawals with supportxmr.com and not 30% on CoinHive. To compensate the lower fee, supportxmr.com has a minimum payout of 0.3 XMR but hey, 30% is tough.
The miner utilises CPU power to mine. You can easily set how much of your cpu you want to utilise, from the number of cores to the percentage of load permitted on each cpu core.
Before you start mining create yourself a Monero address to which your earnings are to be paid. You can do so with the available wallet app for monero from getmonero.org. Then enter your address together with cpu settings into the extensions popup and press save. Now you are all set. Press the power button in the top right corner of the extensions popup and see your computer at work.
The software has a donation factor of 5, meaning for every 100 minutes you mine, 5 minutes are donated to the developers of this tool.
If you came here despite having the extension installed, simply restart it over the Chrome GUI. A small mining button should be in the top right corner of your browser window.
If you have questions regarding the extension please post them in the extensions Google Group.

We do track download numbers with Google Analytics and it stops there. None of your data is collected by us or even stored. The extension itself contains no tracking.
