Converts all URLs to root-relative URLs for hosting the same site on multiple IPs, easier production migration and better mobile device testing.
@Matt Van Andel and others said the right, it can break Ajax calls. The plugin changes some calls to 404 calls. You'll find them on webpagetest dot org like website for frontend issues. Its impossible to find the culprit unless known. Possibly the URI encoding goes wrong towards Twitter, Facebook etc. to load the buttons.
The concept is definitely great and does the work. Due to the bugs the rating is 3/5. We will hope some fix to give 5/5 for sure.
For the most part, this plugin is indispensable. WordPress's insistance on using absolute URLs for everything is my one least-favorite "feature" (it makes it very difficult to develop, stage, and deploy across multiple domains).
I've noticed one problem with WordPress 3.5's new media manager, however - when adding items from the media library to a post, and using the "custom url" feature, the custom URL will be completely stripped and must be entered again manually in HTML/TEXT view.
This is a problem because it can "break" image links for non-technical admin users. Adding an image link that points to another domain will be broken every time, as the href value is empty.
Fix that, and this goes back to being 5 stars! :-)
