i like this addon. although not enabled (due to incompatibility with FF3.6) i still have it installed and am still waiting for an update. i very much hope in the author's kindness and care in this matter.
I've had this plugin for a while and I more than enjoyed it. However, I've since uninstalled it because this thing makes in-browser flash jumpy and periodically freeze. If this error could be fixed, I'd be thrilled but it just isn't worth it.
This extension should provide a lot of users with valuable info on plugins that steal too much CPU time.
As already mentioned, the fact that images are used instead of text in the status bar is bad because it doesn't match the theme, and it is impossible to translate. Also, I think the meter should be measuring load for all plugins at all times - not just in the current tab - or make it an option.
PS. Extension works in the latest FF3 after hacking the max-version, so you might want to update it.
1. Definitely 'Thumbs.db' is not of the important files for an extension, so please remove it from shipping. 2. The CSS file is more than useless. 3. Remove the 'Current Plugin Load' and 'PW ON/OFF' texts from images and make it plain text, thus you will decrease the xpi size and will help further localization process. 4. Name the gauge images properly so anyone can understand what is exactly the purpose of an image just by looking at its name.
All the work with images you are doing now can be made only by using CSS and i'll be glad to help you out with this.
