I tried it with multisite installation. Works great!!! As a thank-you for the simple and efficient plugin, I added the Greek translation. Lena

I debated 4 or 5 stars. This is really lightweight (3KB in the zip file) and does exactly what it says it will do - displays the post IDs. Awesome. The thing is, I have two lists - one of post IDs that contain a certain shortcode I need to change out, and one of post titles. What I want is to be able to sort by post IDs and this plugin doesn't allow that. So I used the much heavier (78kb zip file) Reveal IDs plugin instead. For my use case, this just didn't do the job. But it does do the job advertised and if I could sort by post ID, I would definitely give this 5 stars.

Why waste time using one's browser to find a post's or tag's ID? This makes that information available in the list view of your posts, tags, etc, as promised.
