Releasing a commercial revweb site

I'm within a week of releasing a fairly extensive commercial revweb
project, which will immediately have traffic in the thousands (based on
my existing Rev software and user database). I'm feeling a little
uncertain about this, given the state of the plugin (which mostly works
quite well). I've only tested my program on XP and Firefox so far, but
will do much more thorough testing this week, including asking folks
here to help in the testing process.
One concern I have is that the plugin will likely be upgraded again soon
(in a week?... two weeks?... unknown)... meaning all my users will have
to reinstall it.... which means downloading the new version, shutting
down their browser, installing the new plugin, then restarting. Yes,
they have to do this with other well known plugins, but will they be
concerned that this process will be all-too-frequent with the Rev
plugin? And for that matter, what am I even telling them about a
revweb-based site? Am I telling them to essentially ignore the security
concerns (I use every permission, other than the registry)?
Will there be problems with other configurations of an OS and browser? I
hope to find this out shortly, but what if they have a somewhat older
version of a browser? There's been so little revweb real-world
experience to date.
Anyone else on the verge of taking this leap? Or better yet, has anyone
else already made the leap? Any particular thoughts on this matter?
