Latest reviews

  • (2019-09-19) Patrick Zahra: Mostly works. Doesn't take into account the thousands separator, so something like 2,000 miles comes out as 0 km. Would be nice to have an options page to set decimal places or indicate what units to not bother converting.
  • (2019-05-18) Zoe L.: Thanks for making this extension. Sadly It doesn't work when inches are written in decimals like 8.5" or 2.75".
  • (2019-01-09) Edgar Elenes: It works most of time, but seems to mess up when the units are separated with a space. The following for example, gives 0 km for all units. 250,000,000,000 mi3 ≈ 1,042,000,000,000 km3 333,000,000 mi3 ≈ 1,388,000,000 km3 8,000 mi ≈ 12,875 km
  • (2018-09-16) It's okay, but it's missing speed conversions (mph to km/h).
  • (2018-03-11) Simon M Scheck: been waiting for something like this for a long time. Great app! Would be good if it did temperature too (i.e. Fahrenheit to Celsius)
  • (2018-03-07) Thomas Manson: Partially working. sometime provide wrong conversion, or no conversion at all. the main issue in this extensions is that it doesn't evolve over time.
  • (2018-02-22) Feb 21st 2018 - This extension does work, although I haven't tested it on many different websites. Currently I see it working on my Tumblr dashboard on various fitness related posts. However, I would love if the extension would also work in the opposite direction as well; that is, metric to imperial. I don't know what 90kgs is so I had to do a quick web search to find that it's a whopping 198 pounds.
  • (2018-02-09) neun malelf: Very helpful extension. An option for "replacing" the original number and i give this extension even a gold star.
  • (2018-02-01) Ae Wius: Not working at all :(
  • (2017-08-01) Kamen Mladenov: Has no options and can't even recognize "in" as inches.
  • (2017-07-20) Jakub Grobelny: Finally can understand hamburgers
  • (2017-04-18) Vanja Radonic: Works great
  • (2016-04-28) Shaun Elliot: Works fine

  • (2019-03-27, v:0.2.1) Cha Zoom: Can you do Metric to Imperial
    Your app is set up to convert imperial units to metric ones, can you do the same thing but instead of convert metric units to imperial ones? Maybe another app?
  • (2018-04-27, v:0.2.1) Reading of Commas
    Heya, love this concept. It looks like when there's a comma the extension isn't reading the full amount - see example below: "The details: 200-pound climber, static belay, 35.5 feet (10.82 m) of rope in the system. Forces were measured at the toprope anchor. Fall 1: 800 pounds (362.87 kg) load on the anchor. Fall 2: 750 pounds (340.19 kg) load. Fall 3: 700 pounds (317.51 kg) load. Second Series (the lazy belay): Same details as the first series, but with four feet of slack. Fall 1: 1,300 pounds (136.08 kg) load on the anchor. Fall 2: 1,550 pounds (249.48 kg) load. Fall 3: 1,500 pounds (226.8 kg) load.
  • (2018-03-07, v:0.2.1) Thomas Manson: wrong or no conversion on some articles
    Hi, I love the idea of this plugin, I feel lost with US imperial system, and read quite a lot of articles about Nasa/Spacex etc... The plugins provide an incorrect conversion in this article http://www.businessinsider.fr/us/spacex-elon-musk-competition-companies-rockets-2018-3#virgin-orbit-4 "Virgin Orbit can rocket payloads weighing up to 1,100 lbs (45.36 kg) " the correct value is 498,95kg also here : Stratolaunch can get into orbit, but the carrier is capable of lifting a rocket far more heavy: one that weighs up of 500,000 lbs (0 kg) In here, the 46 mph and "Its 385-foot wingspan makes it wider" do not get converted at all: http://www.businessinsider.fr/us/stratolaunch-is-worlds-largest-plane-pictures-2018-2 Great job, continue improving your plugin :) Thanks, Thomas.
  • (2016-12-01, v:0.2.1) Mathias Lundgren: Commas in values
    Can't handle commas. "nearly 5,400 pounds (181.44 kg) of supplies"
  • (2016-11-03, v:0.2.1) Neil Hooey: Converting the "in" form for inches
    Could you have it convert "1 in" to "2.54 cm"? Many sites use this. You could ensure that there are no more alphanumeric words immediately after to avoid converting a sentence like "He had 2 in the bag".
  • (2016-07-22, v:0.2.1) Les Ritchin: Doesn't convert temperatures
    Hi, This extension is converting most units, but doesn't seem to convert temperatures, such as 400°F.
