The Everett interpretation faces no challenge more pertinent than the problem of how to square manifest determinism with the probability familiar from the conventional quantum algorithm. In this paper I review recent attempts at solving this problem at the conceptual and quantitative (Born) level. I conclude that momentous progress has been made, but certain aspects (subjective uncertainty, decision-theoretic axioms) still require further development.
