  • (2022-11-07) Oliver Chan: It doesn't even let me sign in—I tried but the sign-in site just turned blank. Can't be used.
  • (2022-10-10) Shiqi: Please make it support opera!!
  • (2022-10-10) Libby Williams: This extension is great but PLEASE make it available on firefox browsers too
  • (2022-08-27) Parth Rao: Such a simple and easy way to earn money for charity! Everyone should have this extension installed. I love the way we get to customize our tab background! It is just perfect
  • (2022-08-04) Jacbo: In addition to supporting charity, the new homepage has beautiful full screen background images that are always changing. I would use this just for that homepage alone. I also like that it plays nice with AdBlock+ without having to whitelist the site, as in the ads still show and earn money even without whitelisting the site to allow ads.
  • (2022-08-03) Marti Encinaa: Es muy buena! me funciona muy bien ( por ahora ) y es una gran iniciativa y intención. La recomendaré It's great! it works very good for my ( by now ) and it's a sweet initiative and intention. I'll recommend it
  • (2022-07-21) Sherolyn Smith: I thought this was a great idea, however, I can not find the charities that I was told to pick from. I'm deleting it. Not user friendly.
  • (2022-07-19) Atlas Downs: this would be so perfect, a very useful and great idea, if it didn't log me out every single day.
  • (2022-07-15) Cordelia Johnston (Cordy): Everything about it is amazing! I definitely recommend! ❤❤
  • (2022-07-05) Dan Valentine: There is no way to tell if this extension is actually earning any money from my using it. The newtab page loads from their website and the ads load from it. I usually navigate away from new tabs long before all that loads, so the ads don't actually display.
  • (2022-06-26) Lachlan McLean: Not sure how you can make money just by opening tabs but would recommend if it truly does send money to charity!
  • (2022-06-22) redrumthebum: great for libs who love individual responsibility and what not
  • (2022-06-05) Scarlet Moon: I like the idea of it, but unfortunately I couldn't make it work with Ecosia like I can make Chrome work with Ecosia. With Chrome, I can just make Ecosia my primary search engine rather than Google and can just have it active in the background when I need to search up something. And I thought it would just register the tabs I open, rather than having to change my tab screen entirely. I can't even access the tabs I regularly use if I use Tabs for a Cause and that's a little sad since I open a lot of tabs on a daily basis. And these tabs I open and close almost hourly multiple times a day. It wouldn't be such a huge problem if I wasn't homeschooled, but I don't want to have to type in what I need every time I need it when I already have the frequent tabs for it on the tab screen I already use.
  • (2022-05-22) Jeroen: great idea the only reason i almost instantly disabled it is because it removes the favorites bar in chrome
  • (2022-05-06) Sujatha Sattigari: im late to this trend... https://tab.gladly.io/?u=Mr.Beast6000 pls :D
  • (2022-05-04) NODIRBEK: Very interesting concept to raise money
  • (2022-04-26) Dominick Chew Xu En (Bukitviewss): Love it.
  • (2022-04-20) Thomas Edison: Way to many trackers!
  • (2022-04-19) Makenzie Irvin: me as soon as i get this *OPENS 50MIL TABS*
  • (2022-04-11) Aditya Jain: It is basically saving the world by watching cat videos
  • (2022-03-29) -ItzKaylie-: It's amazing but kind of wish I had google, and i wish you could change the background but it's fine!
  • (2022-03-23) ? mintyrainx ?: normally really good i love it but - CREATORS READ - when i click on a link from google often it will take me to yahoo.com and automaticlly have what i just searched up their. pls fix otherwise really great extention 10/10
  • (2022-03-02) Li-Anne Sim: Wish more people got on board! I know if universities advertised this to their students, money going to charity might double every time during finals period!
  • (2022-02-23) Macky F.S.: Great! Looks good, easy to use and you keep all your bookmarks! One tiny problem is that when you open a tab and immediately type in the search bar before the page has loaded it will delete your text when it loads. But! this rarely happens, and I would definitely recommend.
  • (2022-02-04) Tyler Espinola: Just having this extension can help anything on earth
  • (2022-01-21) Computer Chan: It was alright, but whenever I open a page in a new tab via right click or when the site automatically opens a new tab, it doesn't give me a heart for some reason. Other than that, it's pretty nice.
  • (2022-01-19) Lucas Nelson-Madore: Great!
  • (2022-01-14) star guy: its a great extension just that i would like there to have shortcuts like normal google search thing
  • (2022-01-12) Szonja Keri: We need more of these. It is such an easy way to do a good thing. Using computers and internet is not good for you or the environment but you can at least try to bring the best out of it. I loved the fact that Ecoasia (the search engine) I am using was a possibility to choose.
  • (2022-01-05) Mạnh Đức Đinh: very nice stuff in that
  • (2021-12-05) joshua: its amazing but sometimes it gets a little inconvenient at times because it logs me out then i have to log in again and stuff. still love it though
  • (2021-12-02) Bentley100 Studios: This is actually legit and really cool. I suggest it.
  • (2021-10-20) Adrija Pandey: It would be 5 stars if there was an option to choose your country. I mean I like this raising money and everything the only problem is that I want to find an easy way to donate money to organisations in India which I can't do. Pls add Indian organisations as well else it's cool
  • (2021-10-17) Sydney G: I absolutely love Tab For a Cause!! I love the generated webpage (with the nice background, place for a to-do list, and of course you can see how much money is being donated!) and really enjoy that my penchant for using waaaaay too many tabs is helping donate to charity! However, I'm switching to Firefox as my default browser and I'm really bummed that I can't download the extension there--I'm hoping that it'll get added there eventually because it's really the only downside I can see of switching browsers.
  • (2021-09-22) KadePlayz: Awesome extension! The only thing that I hope you add is an ability to change the amount of ads you get per new tab to help earn hearts faster. You could have 1 ad and earn 1 heart every tab or you could have 10 and earn 10 hearts per tab. I hope you add this in an update, thanks!
  • (2021-09-01) Amadou Bass: Great extension my only complaint is that its limited to chrome and edge, it would help a lot more people if this was widen to include more browsers in the future.
  • (2021-08-28) Blue Bird: -YAY! -A good cause doesn't try to fight with my "Ecosia Search Engine", it tells the time AND the weekday/date! (those are adjustable, open a new tab go to your right hand side press the three dots stacked up together and you can adjust not only your time widgets but also your search engine) -I love how you only need 6 hearts to donate! :D! 350 hearts just for inviting a friend! It has levels which gives me motivation....to open tabs! -They also have a tab thing for shelter cats but I dont know much about it! -SIMPLE but nice! You can also change your background from random daily pics to a color or one of your own. (RIGHT HAND SIDE three dots stacked on each other then go to background and choose what you like.) -In conclusion I LOVE THIS!
  • (2021-08-27) Sim K: as someone that constantly has at least 50 tabs open i'm about to raise 'tabs for a cause' thousands lol
  • (2021-08-08) Lochlann Niddrie: Making a change in the world for good
  • (2021-08-07) Paradox: its better then the old new tab that google gives us, plus, we can donate to charity! thats the best part!
  • (2021-07-29) Eka Ng: Was great until it started to logged me out sometimes, i don't know the cause . . . but it's also really slow my browser searching, i copy paste a link, press enter . . . 5 mins later . . . i only encounter the Tab for a cause page, and i forgot what was i copy paste-ed before . . . i've donated 1600-ish hearts, but for my productivity, i'll remove this until it got update that fix that 2 problem
  • (2021-07-13) Jeel Chaniyara: It's a pretty nifty extension, and does what it says. Ask for a new feature: I only wish I could find out how many hearts I donated to each charity. I care about almost all the causes and would wish to have a equal distribution for each of them. This should not be too difficult to add.
  • (2021-07-11) Zachary Mk: Easiest way to raise money! Great :)
  • (2021-07-08) Sprig: I think this is a great extension, and the people behind it are truly doing a wonderful thing! One issue I have is that it doesn't seem to register the character "&". When you try to look up any phrase with "&" in it, anything after the character is also not registered in the search, so it only looks for terms before it. Honestly, that's just a nitpick though, and it doesn't really make searching any harder. Overall, great job!
  • (2021-07-08) bleiv: Não são claros com quanto da renda dos anúncios é enviada pra caridade e quanto fica com quem gerencia o aplicativo. Metade? Um décimo? Um centésimo? Só dizem "uma porção será enviada". Programas que lidam com caridade devem ser abertos e claros com o que fazem. English: It's not clear how much of the ad revenue goes to charity and how much stays with whoever manages the app. A half? A tenth? One hundredth? They just say "a portion will be sent". Programs that deal with charity must be open and clear about what they do.
  • (2021-07-07) Sanket: It is a very good extension. I love it . I used it for some time but the thing is I can't sacrifice bookmarks bar on new tab page in chrome. Hope the devs understand this and find some solution.
  • (2021-07-01) Nik Edwards: Tab for a Cause still pops up when I open chrome, even after I removed it and deleted my account.
  • (2021-06-30) Jay Kinsley: five stars for concept, goal, and execution. wasn't working for me at first (blank white screen), but just needed a minute and a couple new tabs to warm up i guess
  • (2021-06-30) Jan Reyes: It's really cool and pretty fun, raises money etc. until it stops working and just turns into a white screen.
  • (2021-06-28) Anthony: It's a browser hijacker, but a good browser hijacker that goes for a good cause.

  • (2022-11-22, v:6.1) Jon Hanson: long time user signing off
    Hey, I have used tabs for a cause for years, but now it wont work for me any more. it stopped working and when I try to uninstall and reinstall it says that it cant get to the directory file or something like that. Cool, I will just witch to search for a cause... not, it forces me to use Yahoo search, even though this is a Google Chrome extension. It is getting too buggy and im not enjoying it any more
  • (2022-11-18, v:6.1) Michelle Larsen: Cannot access website.
    When I open a new tab, I used to get a fun and cute photo of a cat. Now it tells me it cannot access the website because it is either down or has moved to a new address. This is the address that comes up in the box - https://tab.gladly.io/newtab/ Any ideas??
  • (2022-08-07, v:6.0) Cassie Beebe: How to browse/choose a charity?
    I found this through a FB ad. The ad was for helping shelter cats, so when I added the extension, it automatically made me support the shelter cats. Which is fine, but I was hoping I would be able to see all the charity options available and choose whichever one I wanted. I've been going back and forth between all of your different website pages, searching everywhere for this kind of option, and I can't see any way to change the charity you're supporting. Is there a way to do that? If so, where?
  • (2022-05-21, v:6.0) Jason David: Is there an application?
    Is there a way to add other charities and non-profits? I'm a fan of Tab for a Cause and how easy it is to raise funds, but I'd like to support the Maui Comic Con if at all possible. They put on a free to the public event every year and they could use the support. Thanks in advance for any info on this.

  • (2022-03-22, v:6.0) Luke Fernandez: Opera Support?

  • (2022-03-12, v:6.0) Laia Galán Figarola: No ads?
    Hi, I've been using this extension for a couple hours now but I noticed there's supposed to be ads, right? They don't show up and I can't watch a video to earn a hundred hearts. I don't know why exactly. Maybe it has to do with me not being in an english speaking country, I'm not sure.
  • (2022-03-11, v:6.0) Jan Sheldrick: What happened to Tab for Ukraine on Chrome?

    Hello, I was hoping to see which charities I could chose from without adding it but didn't. So I added it to see which charities I could choose from figuring that I could remove it if no charities I like were available. I still don't see how to choose a charity. If I don't receive an answer in 48 hours I will remove it. I am deeply concerned about unwillingly supporting a charity that does things that go against my values.
  • (2022-01-21, v:6.0) Jess Frey: Chrome extension but not compatible with Chromebooks?
    This is kind of silly to have a program for browsers with multiple tabs but then you don't allow it to be used on a Chromebook, where most people would be using a browser. We use apps on our phones, we're not sitting in a browser with tabs open on a phone or tablet, we do these things on a laptop which handles tabs better and can be seen all at once, places we do a lot of work and tasks all at once. So what is the point of it not being available on Chromebook, the most used device with Chrome? It just doesn't make sense.
  • (2022-01-04, v:6.0) Steve McLaughlin: Address bar functionality
    I love the concept and am happy to use the add-on. However, I do find it annoying that the cursor focus is left at the end of the address of the TfaC site when my new tab has loaded. Without the add-on running, I can click to open a new tab and immediately start typing the address or search term I am interested in. This is a natural habit developed over years of browsing in any browser or operating system. With TfaC running, however, this results in me entering addresses like "https://tab.gladly.io/newtab/pasta recipe" which obviously go nowhere and are frustrating to correct over and over. Can the add-on be made to either empty the address bar once the TfaC page is loaded, or otherwise restore the normal browsing behavior? This would eliminate my only frustration with the add-on.

When I try to recover my password with an email, the email never appears in my inbox. I've had it sent multiple times and never received any of them.

  • (2021-11-02, v:6.0) Jan Sheldrick: Tab for teamseas
    A couple of days ago I added Tab for teamseas to my Chrome browser - I was previously using the standard Tab for a cause extension. At first it worked fine, but when I opened Chrome again the next day it had reverted to the standard Tab for a cause. I'm disappointed because I wanted to support #teamseas while the campaign is going on. Any ideas?
  • (2021-10-30, v:6.0) Luna Seifert: Ad Count
    I do like this and have been using it for a while now, but if there was one thing I would hope for it would be for the option to choose how many ads are on the tab at once so I could add a few more.

  • (2021-08-18, v:6.0) Meg Meg: Tab for a Cause not working-
    Hello! I've used Tab For A Cause for years! I like collecting the tabs into the thousands then donating them all at once. Today I restarted my laptop and opened Chrome and saw that I had been logged out of my account. I tried logging back in with every email I know I have but I still can't seem to get in. I'm pretty disappointed considering how many tabs I had saved up and how long i've had this particular account. I think the issue may be my google account. I've always used the same google account but now when I log into it, it logged me to an account that already exists but isn't the one i've been using for the past few years. Still my account, just not one that I want. I think the issue may be that my google account email is linked to 2 separate Tab accounts but its logging me into the wrong one. I was wondering if there's anything that can be done about this? I know its silly but I tend to get attached to digital accounts, so I'm pretty disappointed to see this one lost. Thanks a bunch, Meghan S.
  • (2021-08-08, v:6.0) Chi: Tab for a Cause not working with Multiple Accounts
    Hello I'm using Google Chrome and have two accounts with it. One account 1 (this one), I have installed the application with no problems. With account 2, I see the icon for "Tab for a Cause" in my toolbar... and when I try to go install it, I see the message that it's already been installed (while I'm looking around in my 2nd account). The problem is, whenever I open up a new tab in my 2 account, I get the google search engine. I do not have this issue when using my 1 account. I'm not sure what is going on... if it's something I need to do on my end or if it's a glitch. Please help, Thank you.

    Does this extension still function as per the screenshots, specifically does it include bookmark links in the top left (or anywhere on the page) as seen in screenshot #2?

  • (2021-02-25, v:5.20) levi: ability to change accent color
    hello, i adore this browser extension. i feel like i can make a change in the world just by opening some tabs. i know the main feature is the charity aspect, but i also really enjoy the customization options. just a little suggestion here, though: maybe have somewhere in the settings and option to change the accent color (the color the bookmark icon and the bookmarks label are on the homescreen)? by default it's lavender, it looks ok but it doesn't really match the whole theme i've got going on. it's not really that huge of an issue considering the aim of the extension isn't centered entirely around aesthetics, this is merely just a little QoL change that i think would be neat.
  • (2021-02-05, v:5.20) Alexis Rabinovich Orlandi: It logs me out automatically
    I've been using TabForACause for over a year now and never had this or any other problem. A couple of days ago, when I opened a new tab it automatically logged me out and prompted me to the log in page. I logged in with my google account (as it is my only account in TabForACause). Every hour or so, if I open a new tab it logs me out again. It's pretty frustrating and It totally defeats the purpouse of using TabForACause. If you need any more details be sure to contact me. Thanks and keep it up!

    I can't seem to install the extension. When I try there is a problem that says "Could not move extension directory into profile.". I have both restarted chrome and my computer but still get that message. I can still install other extensions. Please help me.

    Hello! Whenever I open a tab, the first thing I see is Ecosia. I've tried looking for the amount of hearts I've generated but I can't find them anymore. Where can I see that information if I want to keep using Ecosia as my search tool?
