  • (2022-05-18) Mojtaba Safvat: So good at what it should do but performance is a huge weak point.
  • (2022-05-11) Xalomon: Awful! If you move your tabs and click Save Session all their story will be gone and the back button disabled! I was lucky to test it with new tabs and not the ones I had, or I'd have lost the tabs' stories. Use History>Recently Closed (which comes with Chrome) to preserve you tab's story, because Toby doesn't save tabs at all, only their current url, like bookmarks.
  • (2022-04-21) Yaëlle: après deux ans d'utilisation, c'est de loin l'extension la plus pratique et la plus simple à prendre en main, la mise à jour tant attendue permettant de réorganiser les espaces est la cerise sur le gâteau, merci aux devs :)
  • (2022-04-17) Виктор: Добавьте русский язык
  • (2022-04-14) John Yard: I have looked at a number of tab management extensions, and I have used Toby (both mini and this version) for a while. In the end, I decided to ditch Toby for Tabox for the following reasons: Toby gives a lot of advance controls which is nice, but harms the overall user experience (UX). It does not support Tab Groups in Chrome It lives in a new tab rather than a popup (for me, I prefer to keep the tab manager handy in a quick access location) Looking over their code, they use a bunch of analytics and tracking services, I assume mostly to help better their product and see how users use the extension, but the amount of information they send and collect is a bit unsettling.
  • (2022-04-08) Xiaoxu Ma: 使用很不错,特别方便,但添加的笔记页超出一页的时候,没有滚动条,没法滚动。ery good to use, very convenient.But when the added note page exceeds one page, there is no scroll bar and cannot scroll
  • (2022-03-31) Emirhan: aslında 4.5 yıldız ama workona'nın tek alternatifi olduğu için 5. neredeyse hepsini denedim, ücretli olan alternatifi yerine tamamen ücretsiz. diğer ücretsiz alternatifler de bunun yanına yaklaşamaz. şimdilik 2 eksiğini hissettim, ama gelişmeye devam ediyor. kullanıcılar özellik isteğini oylamaya sunabiliyorlar. eksiklere gelince: 1. sekmeleri yeni pencerede açamıyoruz. 2. sekme gruplamayı henüz desteklemiyor. (vivaldi's tab stacking or chrome group tabs)
  • (2022-03-14) Clara Patricia Hernández Moreno: It was working well, and I was loving the tool, but one day it decided to erase all my collections. That impacted me and my job in a way you can't imagine. Sadly, I don't recommend this extension anymore.
  • (2022-03-10) Jesús Manuel Moreno: Me gusta mucho, pero creo que le falta un detalle importante: ACTUALIZAR COLECCIÓN. Me gustaría que si tengo una colección abierta en una ventana, al cerrarla, me de la opción de actualizar la colección, es decir, que si he abierto una pestaña más o si en alguna de las anteriores he navegado hasta otra sección de la web diferente, me permita guardarlo. De lo contrario, rompe la dinámica de trabajo, ya que cada vez que vuelves a abrir una colección, se abre como se guardó la primera vez. Y estar eliminando y creando una misma sección para actualizar sus pestañas, es muy engorroso. Voten +1 si os parece a los demás útil esta función.
  • (2022-03-03) Chris: Sehr gut!
  • (2022-03-01) M. Shahid Anwer: I used toby extension last couple of years. It was amazing tool to save URLs in a organizational manners. but I have few issues while using this extension, one I can't use forget password option it occur error, also I can't login while using google chrome extension. Please look into it and resolve the issue.
  • (2022-02-20) Alanium: feo
  • (2022-02-08) Farhaad Psd: can't sign up!!!
  • (2022-01-31) Alex Kost: Extremely useful extension
  • (2022-01-20) LGS: How to change back start page?
  • (2022-01-15) amsedal ThisIsMe: I like this extension, it is very useful. But, I have started seeing popups where my searches would double up on bing. I would search something and another webpage popped up searching the same thing in bing, that I did not request. Also, I noticed my explore setting changing, I like to see all hidden files and something was changing that - suspicious. There was also a hidden directory in my program folder "Lufi" - this is connected to some new extension "yOptBlock," all of which I have tried to remove and keeps coming back ... until I disable Toby... odd ... anyone else seeing this?
  • (2022-01-11) Markus Besch: Dieses Tool ist wirklich ein Segen! Es lässt sich unheimlich viel damit bewegen und an Teamarbeit verbessern. Klasse - DANKE!
  • (2021-12-21) Tsun: Good design ! Regardless of work or personal, it is of great help to me. thank you all~!!
  • (2021-12-19) K. Ali Pardhan: Instant dislike for closing my complex arrangement of chrome tab groups the second I click "save session". why on earth should "saving" mutate the current state.
  • (2021-12-13) Elaam J.: Left a while ago and came back after noticing there was nothing better than sweet-sweet toby
  • (2021-12-13) Hamza Shahid: Amazing extension for people to keep on opening tabs and forget about them :P . Recently, For some reasons I've been getting Toby could not sync from past 2 weeks not sure what's wrong with it. anyone facing this issue?
  • (2021-12-12) Sed Mohsen Vakilzadeh Ebr: awsome
  • (2021-11-27) La lune: It's be great if the extention asks us to change the name when saving session, having to go to the site, click More, then Edit name (literally at the bottom of the list), then Delete the original name and finally type in the title, which are very inconvenient.
  • (2021-11-24) Lu Michelini: I'm so upset. I use to love this extension, it was my all-time favorite and I recommended it to everyone I knew. Now it's unusable. I can't even add another tab to a previous collection. Or even collapse that collection, for that matter. Sadly, I'll have to find a replacement, RIP Toby
  • (2021-11-12) Annie: Game changer. I always have a million tabs open for work for different projects. I LOVE YOU TOBY TEAM! Thank you!
  • (2021-11-10) Константин Балащук: Очень долго искал такой инструмент для организации рабочих пространств и управления вкладками. Очень удобно, красиво, просто, понятно, функционально, есть синхронизация между браузерами и устройствами через аккаунт. Для меня это лучший плагин. Спасибо за этот продукт! Сделайте также плагин для Microsoft Edge )) Best tool for organization workspaces and tab managment. Good job! Develop plugin for Microsoft Edge plz. ))
  • (2021-11-02) Vitaliy Moskalyuk: Полезно, но неудобно: 1. Заменяет стартовую страницу, данная функция должна быть опциональной. 2. В списке "OPEN TABS" отображает вкладки только текущего окна. Необходимо иметь доступ ко всем открытым вкладкам с группировкой по окнам. 3. Свернутая коллекция не воспринимается как объект. Отсутствует информации о ее содержимом: количестве вкладок, а лучше отображение иконок вкладок (хотя-бы первых 10-ти). 4. Без аккаунта ничего настроить нельзя. Хотелось бы иметь "оффлайн" режим.
  • (2021-10-25) Fadi Al.Naeem: plz i cant login
  • (2021-10-22) Kyle Smith: once good, now legitimately unusable 💔 the more you use this extension, the worse it gets. popularity has destroyed Toby. before the (✨ beautiful ✨) redesign, this was my most used and coveted extension. It was more valuable than many of my paid monthly subscriptions. I told everyone I knew about it. it was really good. but Toby has been plagued by its own success —slower and less stable with every (silent) update. slower still with every additional tab saved. make no mistake, the more you use this extension, the worse the experience will become. I quite literally had no choice but to uninstall after a recent update rendered Toby so slow that it fully locked up my browser. so now I'm stuck with hundreds (thousands?) of saved tabs in an extension that I had to uninstall because it is completely unusable. sure, I'll figure out how to get my save tabs out and put them somewhere else. but what a terrible disappointment it is to have to write this negative review, because I can't recommend anyone use this; the more you do, the more locked-in you'll become, and the more painful it'll be when this thing is so slow that you can't even open up the tabs you saved with it.
  • (2021-10-11) Max G: Why...does...saving...a session...closes everything? ..............dumb.
  • (2021-10-06) Raven 0ak: this used to be good...long ago now it no longer wont save full sessions, first it closes all tabs, then proceeds to save 5 to 6 of em and forgets rest
  • (2021-10-01) Sorano: A very well good extension. Been using it for almost a year now and nothing to criticize
  • (2021-09-22) Konst Savinov: It's Genious!!! Просто невероятное расширение! Гениальная идея хранения и совместной работы с закладками! А после обновления вообще бомба! Каждый день просто получаю кайф! Как вас отблагодарить?
  • (2021-09-13) Prinetta: as someone with adhd, this is a life saver. i've always struggled with having way too many tabs open and now i'm able to quickly organize all of them. i also tend to declutter them more often and my actual open tab count has decreased by quite a bit. i also think it's great how this extension is still being worked on and that a lot of requested features have been added already (and thank u for not putting features behind a paywall <3)
  • (2021-09-10) Natalie Tillack: It's already been great and is always improved rapidly. I have it on all my Chrome profiles and have introduced it to my work as well!
  • (2021-08-27) Ricardo Fahrig: Toby is great and is just getting better. It's the best service I found for sharing bookmarks with friends, family and colleagues. It's is much easier to navigate and search than the native Chrome bookmarks and well organized in organizations, spaces and collections. Days ago they released a web version beta to make the bookmarks also accessible on mobile devices. The only feature I'm missing now are logins with Google account etc. :)
  • (2021-08-20) Ngoc Phuc Tran: It works perfectly on Google Chrome but somehow it doesn't work properly on my Opera GX browser although it uses similar Chromium element. Please review this.
  • (2021-08-19) Kevin Chiang: I don't like the new update. Wayyyy too much padding and spacing for blocks. I think the developers/designers are forgetting the main purpose of this tool for users is to be productive. Giving everything extra whitespace/padding makes this tool more difficult to scan at a glance and get to where I need to go. Also the update just made things slow down and laggy too.
  • (2021-08-11) Kevin Alucard: Innerhalb von einem Monat wurde das Design und Layout schon 2 Mal verändert, wodurch man sich immer wieder anpassen muss. Plötzlich sind die Kacheln größer als vorher und man muss sich komplett neu strukturieren und Sachen löschen, damit man weiterhin arbeiten kann wie vorher. Aktuell überhaupt nicht zu empfehlen, da einfach alles schief läuft und zerstört wird. Es gab keinen Grund etwas zu ändern und damit jedem User die Struktur zu zerstören!
  • (2021-08-02) Rex Cope: There is a character limit on URLs, and it's actually pretty short. Many sites' URLs are well over this limit. And I'm talking canonical URLs, not URLs with a bunch of unnecessary extra junk. Also, this has possibly the worst drag-and-drop implementation I've ever seen. Which isn't even really a scripting issue, it's just that the markup is amateurish at best.
  • (2021-07-31) bahrta sai: this is okay, but tabsets[https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tabsets/ifohmndbcefggppiblfofpbkmdfmeing] does the same thing without requiring you to sign up for full features. There is NO signup option at all because it isn't neccesary. It also allows you to backup a tabset to text, so no storing personal information on some company's server. That does mean tabsets lacks cloud backup if you need that. Also tabsets doesn't let you create a new tabset with only one tab. you must add all tabs, then just delete what you don't want. The fact that Toby CAN to do that is really Toby's only advantage,for me at least. Also see Session Buddy[https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/session-buddy/edacconmaakjimmfgnblocblbcdcpbko].
  • (2021-07-31) L Robert: amazing new features. love your product. good for you
  • (2021-07-29) Lyubo Lyubenov: A mush have extension! Keep it up guys!
  • (2021-07-27) Maxime: Please enable us to save a tab group as a collection. It would make Toby so much better!
  • (2021-07-26) Тимур Миннигалиев: Очень хорошее расширение.
  • (2021-07-26) Muhammad Dawood: Stupid Update. The collection is not showing number of tabs. Made the extension heavier and slow.
  • (2021-07-25) Valentin Dimitrov: Great functionality! The only downside after the rework is that it still loads relatively slowly.
  • (2021-07-24) Arcadeus: I really like this google extension. The only thing that I want to make it better is to allow users to change the color scheme. I want another color other than pink and white. I'm hoping for this to happen in the future updates
  • (2021-07-22) Dương Vinh: The best extension
  • (2021-07-21) BY Low: When I search the collection via "/" keyboard shortcut, and press "o" it doesn't open the top of the search result, instead, it open the top collect at the default space.

    Is there any way to save tabs with their navigation history? Sometimes it’s very important. Thanks.

  • (2017-06-25, v:0.4.10) Lulu Sun: Issues with updating the list
    On the manage tabs page, when I drag something from my tabs into the collection, the tab will close but will not show up in the collection. When I refresh, the tab will re-appear into the collection. There are also some other weird bugs, such as a tab will take the name of another tab in the "open tabs" list after moving to a collection. Sometimes the moved tab will not disappear from the "open tabs" sidebar. These problems are fixed upon refreshing.
  • (2017-06-25, v:0.4.10) Lulu Sun: viewing display
    It would be immensely helpful if there was an option to view the saved tabs lists as an actual list, instead of rectangles. It helps to see the entire title of the webpage. Sorting a list would also be very helpful--such as by date/time accessed or alphabetically

  • (2017-06-01, v:0.4.9) "Save Session" closes all tabs without actually creating a session
    I had a group of tabs open with products I was deciding between buying. I clicked Save Session and was presented with the Toby panel, with nothing new showing. I tried a few things and was really frustrated that I would have to open up all of my recent links and parse through them all again. As of today, I checked and that session was actually saved, but on the day of I couldn't find it to save my life. Suggestions: Maybe have a locally stored cache of the recently closed tabs and on the Toby interface have a "Reopen my latest session" or "Undo" type of action to revert the tab closing in case this bug occurs. Keep up the good work, I love the extension.
  • (2017-05-29, v:0.4.8) Boghyon Hoffmann: Performance
    The performance gets sluggish if the collection has many tabs saved. One of the reasons may be some mouse-related event handlers such as 'topMouseOver' and 'topMouseOut' which are fired every time when the mouse moves. The animation is very slow.
