  • (2019-03-20) Love it during my workday!
  • (2019-03-03) E Maines: Ok, but only annoyance is, animated gifs are often static and require going into reddit and clicking a link, (2 clicks total) which mostly defeats the purpose.
  • (2019-02-26) jacqueline kalisch: This makes my day, every day.
  • (2019-02-06) Andrew Herrera: Great entertainment when I need a mini-break from work
  • (2019-01-23) Jack Spence: I use this at work - it keeps me entertained especially when I'm not expecting anything above average (from the extension) and am frustrated with work so I get pleasantly surprised
  • (2019-01-14) Jan-Felix Desroches: Makes me smile almost every day!
  • (2019-01-09) T Moore: A fun little add on. It can be super distracting at times because I keep hitting refresh, but it adds some laughter to my work day so I appreciate. My only complaint is that the gifs don't always load. Also, I recommend a background change. Not feeling the pink/yellow gradient.
  • (2018-11-27) its cool but sometimes the gifs take a while to load but i guess thats my internets problem

  • (2018-09-17) RD X: I really admire the ability of the people behind this app to regularly find some of the most interesting and entertaining gifs on the web. I love going through them and sharing some of the weirdest or funniest ones. Thanks for a great and entertaining app.
  • (2018-09-04) António Silva: The app is great. One improvement would be make a little faster loading gifs
  • (2018-08-21) Mathieu Mouilliere: it doesn't work most of the time, gif doesn't animate or won't load ...
  • (2018-08-01) Madeline de Mahy: Fun way to start a tab. Careful, you may get into a animatedTabs hole!

  • (2018-07-29) Steven van Honschooten: Elke dag weer een feest
  • (2018-03-30) Rodney Lock: Interesting ...
  • (2018-03-30) Matthew Donnell: Great thing when you open tons of tabs every morning. Specially my line of work I got tab to tab to tab all the time.
  • (2018-03-29) LOVE IT
  • (2018-03-27) Ramsy Safadi: There is nothing like a crazy dance routine or cute polar bear gif in the middle of the day to pick you up
  • (2018-03-20) James Thomas: Nice variety.
  • (2018-03-01) Jason Meister: Loved it till the last update. Can't scroll when gifs are big, ugly pink background color, some gifs are at an angle for no reason. Give me the option to go back to the original design please. I use this at work but will have to uninstall if the background color isn't changed back to white. Updated 12/18/17: And now it's completely broken and doesn't load anything. Extension Disabled. Updated 3/1/18: Now it crushes my CPU anytime it's launched and is completely unusable. Its like they are doing everything they can to ruin this extension.
