No way to win this argument outright. But I was curious so I did some looking into it.
based on Curse.com:
• X-Perl Unit frames gets 435,947 Monthly downloads
• Shadowed Unit Frames gets 54,524 Monthly downloads.
before anyone declares a "win" here are some other stats
• HealBOT Continued gets 424,171 Monthly downloads
• Grid gets 280,589 Monthly downloads (lol, imagine if they counted all of the extras that you have to download for it be useful)
• VuhDO gets 165,059 Monthly downloads
• Pitbull gets a mere 22,090 Monthly downloads.
So we see where the popularity statistics rate. Now, who's got a way of comparing performance or which one is used by the better player/raid?
NOTE: in the interest of full disclosure, my first Raid Frame addon was X-Perl (BC) and when WotLK broke it horribly, I switched to SUF. I tried Healbot for a long time, Vuhdo for a couple of weeks, Grid for a month... and I was so very grateful to blizzard for finally improving their raid frames.--
