  • (2023-07-11) Joe P: !!!!! DO NOT INSTALL, EXTENSION HAS BEEN ABANDONED !!!!! Developer has ABANDONED this extension and is ignoring requests to cancel the Pro plan from myself and other users.
  • (2023-06-27) Michael Jennings: BEWARE!! This is ABANDONWARE, and the developer is either unable or unwilling to respond to requests to cancel the pro plan!!! I had to CANCEL MY DEBIT CARD and get a new one because its been months and they won't stop charging! I'm going to do everything possible to get Google to take action here.
  • (2023-06-08) Tal N: doesn't work. asks you to pay for full features.
  • (2023-03-06) Bob Simmons: it seems as if they're not developing this anymore. can no longer add a shortcuts to my favorites
  • (2022-09-18) Abeel Minhaj: its cool and efficient 👍👍👍
  • (2022-09-13) 果子煎饼: 这个是我见到目前最好的workspace管理插件,媲美wavebox
  • (2022-05-02) Marco Vantroba: I liked the idea and also the videos i've seen. But sadly nearly ALL my tabs that i am opening are loading and loading and spinning and loading. After deactivating the extension, all pages i'm opening are instantly there. Sad. Looked promising. Deinstalling now... :'(
  • (2022-03-10) raj palan: It's a nice extension but has a few problems. Some websites don't work well, especially instagram, You have to minimize the sidebar for it to work. Also why does it need to run in the background?
  • (2022-02-14) Roland Ryan: Multiple accounts seem to work for everything but the only website I want to use it with - Discord. :(
  • (2022-01-07) Zoc Hsieh: It's invalid after 2021/12/14.
  • (2021-12-15) Porter Lin: update wrong, can't use anymore
  • (2021-09-22) Uahnbu Tran: The extension is really functional and useful. The UI is great, too. However it's quite disturbing that the sidebar takes time to be integrated into the newly opened websites.
  • (2021-09-06) Sophie Griffiths: Incredibly useful if you're someone with multiple tabs open at all times. Before, I'd rely on the icon on the tab at the top, but if I had 10 pages from the same website open then I'd have to go through each one until I found the specific page I was looking for, Switch takes this burdensome task away by grouping them together under one tab and then giving a little description of the page when you hover over the icon. Makes navigating my desktop and the internet soooo much easier. Highly recommend.
  • (2021-08-18) Augusta Ivory-Peters: This extension has undoubtedly improved my productivity. As a researcher, I am constantly battling with endless tabs in my browser and this extension has immediately streamlined that experience. I especially enjoy the ability to favourite most used tabs (for me, that is Gmail and Toggl Track) and the grouping of multiple tabs from the same website, e.g. OUP or JSTOR. Another great feature is the search tool - I can manage my google docs much more easily, and even search for google docs that I no longer have open, which is a game changer. Thank you, Switch.
  • (2021-08-17) Dominic Liu: Just started using Switch it seems really useful for grouping tabs and tasks within Chrome and making workflow more efficient when handling multiple projects, the spaces feature is really interesting!
  • (2021-08-16) Gabrielle Baxter: Super useful extension! Great for keeping track of the millions of tabs I have open
  • (2021-08-01) Jennifer D. (Jenny): My only complain is that the sidebar often causes sites to get cut off when it's expanded.
  • (2021-07-21) Francisco Sibal: As someone who uses dozens or even 100+ tabs over multiple Windows (I work using Google Drive, Gmail, etc, I have multiple tabs open for research), this has been a gamechanger for me. It helps me organize, it helps me research, it helps me work without worrying where all my information is. I used the free version for months and am now strongly considering the paid version. Great product and the free version is very useful to see if this product is for you.
  • (2021-06-30) Israel Hernandez: It is a very useful tool. I used to struggle to find a tab when I had 30+ tabs opened, and Switch can very quickly help you find the tab with the search tool. Also I found very useful the Crtl + tab option (with their own shortcuts) to go back and forth to the most recent used tabs. Overall it has helped me have a more organized workspace without me having to do anything.
  • (2021-05-23) Lawrence Lam: I installed this extension for a few weeks until I realized it has glitches that prevented displaying some websites. For example, with this extension installed, the simple front page at https://www.java.com/en/ is showing a blank page. I have repeatedly tested installing/uninstalling this extension. Whenever it is installed, the java.com and some other websites failed to load.
  • (2021-05-10) Very good extension!
  • (2021-05-08) Notyourdadthatlefthomeandnevercameback: its good but doesnt work on discord
  • (2021-05-04) Kevin Vélez Guerrero: I likes the extension, however, it's preventing me from loading discord in a tab. While this app is enabled, discord will simply not show no matter how many times you refresh the tab. If you could fix this it would be fantastic! I'm using Chrome 90.0.4430.93 in a Mac.
  • (2021-04-30) David Král: konečně všechno v jednom :-D super
  • (2021-04-26) Hugo Roberto: I like this extension a lot - I usually have so many tabs and windows open at the same time, so to be able to see them all from any window is pretty game changing for me. There are a lot of small details which really make a difference, too (like youtube muting from the sidebar).
  • (2021-04-21) Kenneth Atkinson: Rating a 1. The extension itself isn't terrible, but if you pay for the Pro plan, there's no way to cancel if you want out other than sending an email, and if your experience is anything like mine, you will NOT get you plan switched back to free and you WILL continue to be billed. Avoid. A scam as far as I'm concerned.
  • (2021-04-12) Alex Nguyễn: Yo this is good stuff. I'm working way faster and I'm feeling a bit more productive. I love it!
  • (2021-03-12) Peter Lee Budi Banjarmasin: keeps getting a pop up to either pay a monthy fee, annual fee, or sign up for a 14 day trial. please make it possible to stop this constant pop up. it's very very distracting. thank you
  • (2021-03-01) Dat Pham: I love it
  • (2021-02-19) Guy Thornton: Really neat little extension which has saved me a bunch of time. I've found it particularly useful in lockdown as I only have one screen so managing all my tabs was an arduous task.
  • (2021-02-18) Courtney Robinson: The best tab manager I have found to date!
  • (2021-02-17) Hari Prakash: Hello! This chrome extension does not work on a Brave Browser (Chromium Based).
  • (2021-02-16) Rachel Nemchand: Awesome extension! If you have lots of tabs open this is a lifesaver, changed the way I use my desktop, can find everything so much easier. Thanks
  • (2021-02-11) S H: I was hoping you would having to keep all your tabs open with this extension, but you still have to have your tabs open for it to work. I guess I just don't have enough tabs open at one time to make it work. Although at the time of writing this review, I do have over 25 tabs open. But with a 27" iMac, it's not too much to not see them. I guess I'm just not the target audience for this extension. I don't see the value in it. It also does not work on most websites correctly. Websites will be bouncing side to side as your scroll as they try and resize because of this workspace taking up some of the side of the window. Or words on the edge will be cut off. On Switch's own website, their install link at the top right was halfway cut due to this extension being on. I guess I can see how it's good for some, but unless you have 100 tabs open on a 13" laptop, I don't think it's worth it.
  • (2021-01-01) no name: I've been looking for this exact functionality for many years. I usually have multiple tabs open per domain like github or colab or google docs, and once you have too many tabs open you can't even see the title of the tab because it gets squeezed to oblivion. It turns out this extension completely solves my problem with the extra tool bar that groups by domain. Absolutely brilliant idea and execution.
  • (2020-12-29) Tom Isherwood: As someone who is constantly on Chrome, regularly having too many tabs open, this extension has improved my tab management so much. I no longer get lost in my browser, what a great product!
  • (2020-12-22) EHHLLIIE: I just downloaded it on a MacBook Air and it doesn't work at all, can't open or use it. I guess only you'll only be able to use it if you pay. Uninstalling.
  • (2020-11-15) Emil Dayan: I'm a Stacks-browser user, but this is what made me switch back to native Chrome. Simon, is this still being developed? There's a few things I'd love to see; - Toggle for open link in new tab/current tab - Custom icons for tab groups - Notifications (always-on tabs) I hope you find the time to continue working on this extension as it can become a major competitor against the growing market of productivity within the browser.
  • (2020-10-19) yasmoo Aljl: i like it let your work more easy
  • (2020-10-19) Людмила Руденко: nice
  • (2020-10-18) นาย วินัย อ่อนขจร: ชอบ
  • (2020-10-16) yonata leyva: ecelente
  • (2020-10-16) J K: Good idea, but not exactly working, because I need to zoom in some websites and this bar also got zoomed in and things fall apart.I need constant size for this bar. Also I need an option to hide it by default
  • (2020-10-06) Carla Burgess: This is genuinely a game changer for me. Increased my productivity and organisation especially now working from home. Would recommend!
  • (2020-09-03) Eric Burton: I've never had a crush on an extension, but in all seriousness this one makes me feel warm and fuzzy. To the extent that I spend my life on the computer (quite a large extent), it has changed my life. I have tried about five tab managers over the years that all helped a little bit, but this one just blows them all out of the water. Perfect. Always available but not in a way that adds any more clutter to my desktop or my mind. I'm a little confused about some reviews saying it doesn't work without paying. I wonder if the extension has gone through major changes or if it's something like one reviewer said where there's an incompatibility issue. I'm tempted to get the paid version, and I might at some point, but for me the free version is so immensely useful all on its own that I can say all the stuff I just said without having spent a dime.
  • (2020-08-01) Andrew Harrigan: Been looking for something like this for a while, my tab management is a lot more efficient. Don't think I could work without it now. I love it. To get get the multi account logins you have to add another extension but was simple
  • (2020-07-06) Chelle Belle: Too slow and bulky. Just a glorified tab organizer when used without a paid subscription. For that use, I'd reccomend the far faster Aerys extension.
  • (2020-07-06) Chicong Nguyen: ok
  • (2020-07-04) Ginger: It's a good exstention but does not work well with microsoft edge. do you think that you could fix that?
  • (2020-07-02) MANUEL LOBO LOBEZNO: no probado
