Trying out Firefox 104 energy measurements

In an earlier version of the article the calculation statement contained a message about us being confused why the conversion factor is 277000000. Thanks to Silas Duddeck from the Goethe University in Frankfurt who pointed out that the factor should be 1J = 2,777778⋅10-7kWh = (1/3600000)kWh = 277777777 Mozilla released a new version 104 this week which sports a power measurement feature.
