Great Idea, But Slows Firefox Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I've had trouble with Auto Reload on two separate machines (both new win7 machines, with fresh installs). Firefox progressively slows down - not just pageloads, but the application itself. Watching task manager, I can see the cpu spiking.
By disabling the add-on, the problems totally disappear.
Please have a look Yurii - this is a great idea that isn't quite ready for primetime. 5 stars if it works trouble-free!
It means there are too many files set to watch for updates. Delays are noticeable when there are hunderds of files or more. There are options under preferences to exclude irrelevant local files. Also AutoReload does nothing if there are no tabs matching any rules open. If you experience delays permanently you should definitely check you rules.
