Move over Platform, here comes Web Tools

For the longest time, the most downloaded project at was Eclipse itself - the Platform and SDK that everyone knows and loves. But there's a new kid on the block, and that kid is Web Tools.

Prior to December 2005, the Web Tools project occasionally flirted with the bottom positions of the top-10 downloads. A few weeks ago, with the launch of Web Tools 1.0, it landed the #2 spot. Today, it claimed top spot, with a whopping 3,400% increase in downloaded files since December 2005. Wow. Web Tools is also the #2 visited project website at, surpassed only by BIRT.

Congrats to the Web Tools team. Nice work!
