So sick of seeing Imperial units and Fahrenheit, this works great, saved me so much strife.

It's great, but it can be improved by ability to read a single character fractions like ⅜ .

That works for me, can you give an example site where it doesn't?

Turns everything into ml. Then I have to search again how much is it in grams. Not really useful.

Conversion directly to grams works in many cases, but is impossible to always get right. If you list some sites that don't work, I can try to improve it.

I'm tired of constantly googling these odd US metrics - this is a great idea and it works very well! I tested it on a bunch of sides including https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooking_weights_and_measures. It doesn't do tables it seems, but for plain text it works great. Awesome that it can catch "worded arithmetics" like this one: "Mix 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp of flour [110 g]". As of now I haven't encountered any conversion issues. edit: it doesn't catch that "worded arithmetic" sentence in the c... Show more

A good extension that I would love to use, but why on earth does it insist on turning volume into weight? That would be a great optional feature for people who want to use their scales, but making it mandatory renders the whole extension basically useless for those of us who don't. Add a setting to switch to strict volume-to-volume conversions and it's an easy five-star. Other option that would be nice are forcing dl instead of ml and disabling conversion of volume measures other than cups. ... Show more

just installed and tested on a few recipes from different sites. seems to work fine. Only complaint would be it has to be turned off and on again for each page visited in order to convert, but this is a small gripe, much quicker than having look up conversions for each ingredient. An update, after using for several weeks it has now stopped working. I also noticed that when comparing the same recipe on different websites it would give different gram weights for half cup of the same flour typ... Show more

Great app! Finds all the weird fraction and all measurement written on the sites I use. Very good app for most types of cooking. But completely unusable for baking because of the extreme way if rounds number up or down to provide neat whole numbers. For instance 1.5 lbs become 700 grams instead of 680 gram. It needs an option for adjusting precision.

Slow, buggy, and only worked for one out of the many, many American measurements in a recipe.
