  • (2021-06-18) Tom DAmore: I have used so many different start/home page extensions but this is by far the best. I combination of all the right options, simple, clean, highly efficient page that just makes everything right there!
  • (2021-05-11) Fred Sexton: Simple and Saves Time Took me like 3 minutes to install. Like that it's got options for customizing what widgets and how I want stuff displayed. The video background is neat plus too, gotten some comments about that. I've got Amazon and Google search bars here which saves me a fair amount of time.
  • (2021-05-07) Thomas Reynolds: Blown away by the quality and features of this extension! Google should be ashamed by how inferior the default is compared to this. I'd give this 10 stars if I could.
  • (2021-02-16) Oscar Ade Gunawan: its very nice, almost perfect. there is just one weakness. please make it load faster, make it works offline. and i suggest to add a bit more feature. for example, to make it focus on the search bar at startup, or to add the custom animation background, etc
  • (2021-02-09) Sagar Naliyapara: Great new tab dashboard with lots of features. Best one I've seen!
  • (2021-02-08) Admin G: One of the best start pages ive seen yet! Everything is customizable, even the search engine which most are not. The pages feature is awesome too!

  • (2020-08-21) Justin Simons: Nice and clean. I like the idea of using it as a way to manage bookmarks I need to keep top of mind.
  • (2020-08-18) Conner Ring: SO much better than the default New Tab page. The animated backgrounds look amazing in fullscreen, and the shortcut customization/dark mode make for a very clean/minimal browsing experience.

  • (2021-05-07, v:5.0.0) Thomas Reynolds: Minor suggestions
    Love this extension, thought I'd submit a couple minor suggestions that would make it even better. 1: It'd be nice to be able to add multiple shortcuts at once, instead of re-opening that menu every time. Makes it a tiny bit tedious when setting it up for the first time and adding a lot of shortcuts at once. 2: For the countdown widget, it'd be nice to have checkboxes to choose which time increments we want to display, in order to reduce the size of the widget by hiding some of the intervals the user doesn't need. I don't need to see seconds for my countdown that has 30 days to go. 3: It'd be cool to add folders on a page have multiple shortcuts within that folder. So similar shortcuts can be grouped together in one icon to save space. Again, these are very minor, overall this extension is excellent. Great work by the developer(s)!
  • (2021-03-01, v:4.7.0) Jonathan Cooper: syncing
    using two devices logged in to the same chrome account, it appears the sync does not work between the devices. I am unable to keep both start pages the same on both devices.
  • (2021-02-23, v:4.5.0) Mark Lattimore: Weather Widget
    When trying to change location for weather widget, get an "Error" in the widget. Any thoughts?
  • (2021-02-20, v:4.5.0) Janey R: How do I have you as my default?
    Whjen I go to the "Home" icon it gies to Google? If I close out of Chrome, then when I open, it goes to Google again rather than Start Page? I have set it as my default but it only defauilts when I have it open and search new pages.
  • (2021-02-08, v:4.4.3) Admin G: Live backgrounds and image daily rotator
    Would like even more live backgrounds! They are awesome so far. Also would love to have a feature that would show different backgrounds daily. Otherwise great extension so far, keep up the good work!
  • (2020-10-09, v:2.3.0) Sandy Lee: Remove from Chrome
    Want to remove the start page
