Latest reviews

  • (2021-07-02) Mark Kruger: Must have if you work deeply with browser, with multiple channels, or multiple Chromium based browsers.
  • (2021-05-30) Royce Williams: Must-have way to keep careful (yet simple) track of major and minor version of Chrome or Edge, with current vs stale indicator, shown in the browser bar. Author is highly experienced in browser design & security. Also shows User-Agent string on hover and right-click for handy dev links. Essential.

  • (2019-11-05, v: Pål Nilsen: Stale - but it's not?
    The icon says "stale", but I have the current version listed on OmahaProxy. 78.0.3904.87 {"arch":"x86-64","os":"mac"} Crappy formatted copy from OmahaProxy: mac stable 78.0.3904.87 78.0.3904.70 10/31/19 10/22/19 675968a8c657a3bd9c1c2c20c5d2935577bbc5e6 693954 5b23971bb3c5714a5664440b3ec5e2c879e7d571 3904

    Very nice plugin, but the main version number is often hard to see when using Chrome on Linux with Gnome using the global dark theme. It would be cool if there were an option for a dark mode to invert colors, or a glow/outline around the main version number.
