First - on which browser the filter didn't work for you?
About more filtering - yeah, I'm thinking about that too.
Performance - it depends on your browser. For example FireFox doing fine, while IE7 has big load times. I'll try to simplify list output by splitting it into the pages. This should fix ie perfomance issues too.
And I'll think something about tree visual appearance.
sorry forgot to mention my browser, and hell no! i'm not using IE ;)
filter seems to work fine now on both FF 3.5.3 and Safari 4 on OS X (just have my macbook over this weekend)
the loading of recipes list takes on both browsers ~20sec
during the coming week i'll check out the site on my windows machine..
Big AJAX queries are a no-no though, you should look into selecting recipes with level ranges.
0-100, 100-200, etc. should reduce the load time A LOT already
yeah, OP suggested pagination, but i think it's a pain in the *** - regarding usability.
maybe you can add a dynamic loader: first 50 results will be displayed. when user scrolls to bottom of list (like in google reader) then the next 50? items will be loaded via ajax aso aso...
