(Surprisingly) useful to me!

Outstanding, and it keeps getting better!

It recognized and converted "35deg Celcius" despite the lack of a space between the number and "deg"; the "deg" abbreviation; and most surprisingly, the mispelled Celsius!

Thank you, but the explanation is simpler

Thank you for the kind words! Regarding the measurement you encountered, the Converter actually converted "35deg", regardless of what came next. For instance, try "35deg Fahrenheit" -- it will still convert from 35 degrees Celsius, if your preference is for Fahrenheit (my preference is for Celsius, so both your example and mine are converted from Fahrenheit to Celsius).

Supertare! Eu as vedea un prog guv (stiu ca vorbesc prostii, da' na!, visez si eu) sau un program al unui ONG prin care sa rasplateasca toti programatorii din RO pentru add-on-uri sau traduceri pentru soft-urile populare. Cred c-ar avea mai mult sens decat banii cheltuiti aiurea pentru "imaginea" Romaniei. Parerea mea!
Anyway, good work!

Good Add-on. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on can be much more powerful. Just be creative and be original. Convert MB to Bits, to TB, etc.

If you need help just contact me i want to get started in Firefox Add-ons.

Keep the good work!

Very useful program. Yes it would be much better if it could pick up the displayed currency automatically but let's not carp too much. It does a great job and it's free.

Excellent. It does exactly what it says, is easy to use, is not intrusive and is available with one click when you need it.

WOW this is what I was looking for...GREAT! I love this...saves me a lot of time. Is it possible to have this extensions convert the units set in the setting automatically on the page rather than having to right clik and selecting convert all units etc?

Thank you for this very useful add-on. Would be nice if it become available as a Google Chrome add-on as well. This is one of the add-ons I am missing in Chrome.

Keep up the good work!

Superb! No need for currency conversion. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hello, I read your plans for future features. Your add-on is a very useful tool for daily work at the computer. And I think that currency conversion is not necessary, because there exists an add-on that does this very well. People who also want currency conversion can install this in addition:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7908

Your add-on is the perfect solution for people who only want unit conversion. And I think it should do only this and nothing else. Keep your add-on lightweight! I recommend to drop programming on the complicated currency thing and concentrate on maintenance of the unit conversion and its options.

Also, I'm always a little bit touched when I read how much time and love people invest into things like this and then share it for free with others. Sharing is what brings progress and prosperity for all. In case you ever decide to drop it due to lack of time or whatever, please ask the community if there's someone who will take the project and maintain it. I'm sure there will always be people who can do the job. Thank you for all your work. If everyone would share his productivity as you do, this world would be a very delightful place for everyone on this planet.

Everything's relative

Thank you for your kind words, Paul!

Regarding your option against currency conversions, I'm not sure I want to drop it. I'm a purist myself when it comes to small utilities like Firefox add-ons, in that I completely agree they should do one thing, and do it well. But I see the Converter's purpose differently than you: you seem to see it as a unit converter -- I see it as a contextual converter. Where you see strength in unit conversion specifically, I see strength in contextual conversions in general. Not to mention that, in a broad enough sense, currency conversion IS unit conversion -- the simple fact that the units happen to be monetary units instead of physical units is just a technicality.

Regarding your appreciation for free software, you'd be surprised how good a motivator money can be, even in this context. The sheer lack of donations is probably the number one factor for the code quality, development speed and/or maintenance quality of many pieces of free software (read "lack of code quality, etc."). In fact this is a hotly debated topic among many coders writing free software: how to monetize it. And I don't mean making a fortune out of it, I mean getting *something* in return -- the way I see it, ideally a hobby project should be able to finance another (reasonably inexpensive) hobby. For instance writing free code should be able to finance buying a couple of lenses a year for hobbyist photographers; conversely, if your "main" hobby was photography then it should be able to finance buying the necessary software, or printer, or whatever. And so on. Ironically, most hobbies (including programming in general) can produce a modest revenue stream -- but writing free software does not, more than 99% of the time.

At any rate, thank you for your interest and, more importantly, thank you for taking the time to share your ideas and appreciation!

when are you going to make it for T-Bird???

Not so simple

Thank you for the rating, John. Unfortunately I don't know any good resource for porting Firefox applications to Thunderbird, and since I'm not familiar with Thunderbird's inner workings it's not that easy for me to port it. Also, the fact that I'm not receiving too many such requests doesn't make this one of my priorities.

If you know of any related resources please let me know -- maybe it easier than I think, who knows?

when I browse the addons pages today I feel overwhelmed by the amount of addons that don't really improve your browsing experince as much as they take up your time tweaking them. it's refreshing to find one like converter once in a while that's been created out of pure need and that only focuses on attending that one need.

buna treaba. :)
