- by PeaceByJesus.com, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great idea, but what we need is an extension that will convert metric units into standard US sizes. The ones that used to do so no longer work on current Firefox builds.
- by Pelagius, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I don't need to go to weight conversion websites anymore! (http://www.kingarthurflour.com/learn/ingredient-weight-chart.html is a good one, by the way.)
All of the weights I need are right there on the page, this is wonderful. It does not take 20 seconds to run on my machine, more like one or two seconds like the developer reported.
- by Francijn, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This Add-on really changes the text of the recipe, by adding metric measurements between square brackets. It will take some time (like 20 secs?) but then it will even take into account the mass density. I checked some of the conversions, and saw no mistakes. Awesome!
*Edit: I cannot add an answer to your question, Falk Hüffner, so I add it here.
I randomly tried the add-on here:
Today I tried again, and it took me 26 seconds.

Developer responseposted 3 years agoThanks for the review! It's not really supposed to take 20 seconds, maybe one at most, can you tell me what kind of computer you use and which page you tried?
*Edit: Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce this problem, on my machine it takes less than half a second on this page. My best guess is that Firefox's regexp library doesn't work well on your CPU (this add-on is fairly demanding on regexp performance). Not sure what to do about this, sorry :-(
