An addon that reports usage statistics as part of the the Update Check. Could add question about activation to first run after installation. User is identified by Java-Time (64 bits) when the addon is activated. This identification is only used for this purpose and changes if the user deactivates/activates the addon. The purpose of the ID is only to estimate number of participants.

Purpose: Feedback on how JDownloader is used. Remove some of the bias caused by the difference between registered and non-registered users.

Statistics are all either instantaneous (the current value) or since last report. This avoids problems in the unlikely possibility that two users have the same ID.

Statistics to report (all since last report):
Hours since last report
Hours of JDownloader use since last report
Total JDownloader sessions since last report
KiB downloaded as free user from each host since last report
KiB downloaded as premium user from each host since last report
Count of links downloaded
Count of Packages (instantaneous, not since last report)
Count of links (instantaneous, not since last report)
