  • (2020-06-30) Mitch Holmes: Makes Gmail through a browser actually usable - it's madness that this isn't already a feature
  • (2020-06-26) Rora m: Magic! A must have! Why doesn't Google provide this option by default?
  • (2020-04-06) Christian Schmetz: Super extension ! Do the job !
  • (2020-03-19) Michael Linenberger: Excellent. Can't believe it's not already an optional setting in Gmail. It seems so obvious since when I write a reply I am replying to the latest thoughts sent on a thread, so I like to glance at that content as I write the reply. This makes that possible.
  • (2020-03-11) Tony Petruzzi: This plugin will change your life. Why Gmail doesn't have this built into it already is something I'll never understand.
  • (2020-03-06) Amy Liao: Lifesaver.
  • (2020-02-14) Al Albers: Worked for me. Thanks!
  • (2020-02-08) Omar Faruk: Good. I want it to my Mobile (Android) Gmail App.
  • (2020-02-07) Wouter Jeuris: Unbelievable that this is *still* not a default feature. Thanks for the implementation!
  • (2020-02-06) Connor Shillady: This extension did nothing to my gmail! What a waste of time.
  • (2020-01-31) Cary Vervaeke: Awsome extension. Now to get it working, you have to close your gmail and then reopen it. Also, make sure in settings that you have turn "conversation mode" off and then on again to reset. I had been trying to do this inside the gmail app for ages and was so happy to find this extension. Love this extension.
  • (2020-01-31) Cornelia Thurmann: Perfect! Thanks so much for this!
  • (2020-01-28) Mark Neale: I'd give you 6 stars if I could. Gmail should have been made this way. Thank you!!
  • (2020-01-24) Anna Ray Team Office: Wow, the extension is awesome and worked right away. I did not need to turn conversations on/off for it to work, as some earlier posts suggested. I also have no idea why this is not the standard view. The standard view is like trying to read from right to left!
  • (2020-01-23) Ruiyu Liang: this app make the live better again!:)
  • (2020-01-13) elena iglesias: Wonderful !! Just need to log out and back it, and my email's are reading as they should. The latest conversation should be by default on TOP, not bottom. But very happy to have found this extension !! Thanks !!
  • (2020-01-09) Cedric Marivel: do the job just perfect!
  • (2019-12-14) Anthony Petruzzi: Dude... I love you. This is THE SINGLE MOST PAIN POINT about Gmail. I hate having to scroll and try to find the most recent message in a thread. You have made my decade.
  • (2019-12-09) Love it.
  • (2019-12-02) Scott Willy: Does what it says.
  • (2019-12-01) Steven Hultgren: I love this extension! The backwards presentation of email Gmail insists on forcing upon us is absurd. Thanks you for freeing me from the insanity.
  • (2019-11-27) Marjun Roble: Very awesome job. Very helpful in my day to day job.
  • (2019-11-26) Kevin Capel: You have finally made Gmail acceptable to me. Thank you . Thank you. Super easy to install.
  • (2019-11-12) Stefan Sundqvist: Super!
  • (2019-11-07) Danai Bastide: That's the real stuff

  • (2020-06-25, v:0.0.7) Mike S: Only seems to work in a pop-up window
    Extension doesn't seem to work in my default mail view but it does work when I open a specific threaded email as a pop-up. Not ideal.
  • (2020-06-03, v:0.0.7) Christopher Teague: Not working
    I really like this extension, but like others have mentioned, it doesn't seem to work for me. Any suggestions?
  • (2020-05-28, v:0.0.7) Jessica Heinn: Keeps stopping
    The reverse conversation view doesn't stay. I have to uninstall and reinstall several times a day.
  • (2020-04-14, v:0.0.7) Stephanie Lynch: Keeps stopping
    I have to re-install this everyday to keep it working.
  • (2020-04-03, v:0.0.7) Darla Jones: Cannot change subject?
    Reverses convo order as advertised, but I was unable to change the subject of a reply. Is there a workaround for that?
  • (2020-03-29, v:0.0.7) Eric Rosenzweig: Not working
    As a follow up - I think I may have found something. I use the vertical split and reverse doesn't seem to work when I view email there. However, if I pop out the email in a new window it works. Not ideal, but at least it works that way.
  • (2020-03-29, v:0.0.7) Eric Rosenzweig: Not working
    This used to work really well, but doesn't appear to be working anymore. I'm on 0.0.7 of the extension and version 80.0.3987.149 of Chrome.
  • (2020-03-25, v:0.0.7) Ramneek PURI: Extension not working for Gmail
    Hi I have installed the chrome extension but still my conversations are not loading in reverse. Please help
  • (2020-01-24, v:0.0.7) Kerstin Bonicard: Add on not working
    Hello, I have done all the steps I keep reading about. Downloaded 0.0.7 Version. I have refreshed page, turned conversation view off then back on, and logged out and back in. When I click into the conversation, the conversation shows corrected with the most recent on the top for the first 3 seconds then it automatically switches back to the old view (does the same thing with the reply button on top as I added that add on as well). My url is below. Is it an issue since it is a company owned url? https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?zx=pyodfrqe69a2#inbox
  • (2019-11-18, v:0.0.7) Russell Graville: Extension enabled, page refreshed, even system rebooted, still not reversing thread
    Conversations are not being reversed. I see conversations exactly the same with the extension removed, installed and enabled, and installed and disabled. Using Chrome Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit). Using Gmail reverse conversation version 0.0.7 Gmail account is accessed at https://mail.google.com/* It is working for others in my organization. Please advise as to what could be interfering with functionality. I am willing to help troubleshoot and provide logs.
  • (2019-10-28, v:0.0.7) ADMIN ACO: how to reflect new messages always on top
    Would like to new messages always on top—how do I do this on gmail?
  • (2019-10-23, v:0.0.7) Brian Stephens: Only works for https://mail.google.com/*
    My business uses gmail, but the website is: https://mail.google.com.us.cas.ms I can't seem to be able to add websites to the extension to grant permission to that site, it's locked to mail.google.com only. Any thoughts?
  • (2019-10-21, v:0.0.7) Richard Brindley: Does this extension need an update?
    Excited extension, but I installed app, refreshed page, and it didn't work. Also disabled other extensions and put gmail on the native view (no preview pane or split view): still didn't work. Did the latest Chrome update break your extension? Are you planning to update?
  • (2019-09-24, v:0.0.7) St. Martin de Porres: Reverse reply message, current message on top, how to make it work?
    current reply on top, how?
  • (2019-09-19, v:0.0.7) Lindsay Hazlett: Not working
    My gmail extension used to work, but in recent months it does not. I have uninstalled and re-added the extension with no luck. Is there something I am missing?
  • (2019-09-18, v:0.0.7) Kevin Tuuri: Add Enabled/Disabled Option
    It would be extremely helpful if you would add an enabled/disabled toggle so that the extension can be deployed at a large scale without forcing it to be enabled. I'm happy to contribute and help add the functionality if you're interested.
  • (2019-08-06, v:0.0.7) LaDonna Crawford: No delete button?
    Why is there a reply, reply all and forward option - but no delete. Also, I'm finding I have to individually delete each email in the string. Am I doing something wrong?
  • (2019-07-12, v:0.0.7) James E Burns: Allow first message to be hidden on click
    If you receive multiple unread messages from the same thread, you can only toggle/hide the messages after the first one (last in reverse order), making you have to scroll past the the first (reversed) message to read the previously sent ones. If you make it so you can toggle the first (reversed) message in the thread, you can toggle all the messages if needed. This is necessary when the last message received is long and tiresome to scroll past. I inject a script to add the missing event listener on hash change: lastEmailMessage = document.querySelector('div.h7.ie.nH.oy8Mbf'); lastEmailMessage.addEventListener("click",function(e){ if ( this.querySelector('div.aHl').parentElement.style.display=="" ){ this.querySelector('div.aHl').parentElement.style = "display:none;" }else{ this.querySelector('div.aHl').parentElement.style = "" } },false);
  • (2019-07-12, v:0.0.7) James E Burns: Suggestion: Allow reversal in read conversations only and toggle button
    Thank you for the extension! I would like to ask if an options page can be created so that end-users can have some customized features with this extension. For example, in cases where I haven't read any email messages in an email thread, I would like to read them in chronological order or normal order. For cases where I have already read messages in a thread, I would like to see the newer messages first (reverse order). Also, if a "toggle" button could be added to the Gmail page to show the current email thread in reverse or normal order, I think that may be helpful.
