  • (2015-12-16, v:0.0.21) Vasilij Melnychuk: Dead API
    You can use this https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/hnews-tab/ncidefnjgemennmcegcfkfmooeenbnfd?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon until authors fix this app.
  • (2015-04-15, v:0.0.21) Fix Dead API
    Since the old API is dead, perhaps someone could fix this so it uses the officially supported Firebase API? https://github.com/HackerNews/API Maybe I'll take a look at it this weekend.
  • (2015-04-13, v:0.0.21) Mohamed Essam Fathalla: API is dead
    the tabs are flushed!
  • (2015-04-12, v:0.0.21) Clayton Brand: Broken
    I guess Murat also saw this, but it says the connection was refused to "http://producthunter.awesome.io/hn.json". Totally broken right now :(
  • (2015-04-11, v:0.0.21) Murat Senturk: Problem
    Damn! There has been an error connecting to the ProduchtHunter API...
  • (2015-04-02, v:0.0.21) MinopolisMc: Links in new tab
    Would be nice if you could toggle whether you want target="_blank" links or not
  • (2014-04-02, v:0.0.20) Christian Bankester: Links to HN threads do not resolve correctly
    When clicking on a link to a Hacker News thread, I get sent to something along the lines of unsafe:chrome-extension://gofiefpdbkknjlkdhmlgnhloepilkmmp/item?id=7515755
