  • (2020-07-04) Nikko de Guzman: One of the best chrome extensions ive used. makes everything easy from switching to different apps and syncing it to all devices only issue is the google messages app is a bit buggy, sometimes it doesnt load. hope you get to fix this
  • (2020-07-03) Pete: Update Jul 3, 2020: Thank you so much for stopping the new tab update madness, now there's a small indicator, and upon clicking it, you open a new tab with the newest updates. Thank you again. #5stars :) Previous review: Good extension, and it would get a 5 rating, if it weren't for the spam when the extension gets updated. Every extension gets updated, but this is the only developer which thinks we need a new tab opened letting everyone know. Remove this, or allow us to opt-out, and you get 5 stars. @Stacey Anderson. I definitely feel the same about not knowing when/if some extensions get updated, and I appreciate the work put into this, but I need a mute button; either let me opt-out, or put an indicator on the icon that it was updated at the very least. I just don't understand why it has to open a tab when I'm in the middle of something, it's distracting. I have most Google products pinned to my taskbar, but something like Tasks which doesn't have anything available, or Translate and Adense which I usually just spends a minute on and leave, I love this app.
  • (2020-06-27) Leo Huang: Awesome tool, you can integrate frequently used applications on one interface, the one-click call pop-up function design is awesome, amazing
  • (2020-06-23) Carlos Eternod: "More Google than Google" totally true. The best extension ever!!!
  • (2020-04-11) Burkeleigh Boyd: This is the best way to be productive with your google apps. 11/10 would recommend. It is perfect for multi tasking or quickly checking an email. This is amazing and I wish I would have found it sooner.
  • (2020-04-06) Rayna Kuzio: A handy pop-up equipped with an arsenal of shortcuts ready to instantly launch any one of Google's goodies you choose in a convenient new tab (shortcuts like: Gmail, Calendar, Tasks, Keep, Drive, Search, Extensions, Web Store...and OH SO MANY MORE). I didn't think I'd use it as much as I actually do before I had installed it. It really is very handy, not to mention attractive and color-customizable (Dark Mode, Light Mode, and Mixed).
  • (2020-04-05) Levent Bektas: Wonderful addon, Thanks so much. Good Work Developers :)
  • (2020-04-03) Pedro Baute: Excelente y súper útil. 5 estrellas porque no puedo poner 10. El único problema que tengo es que no me suenan las notificaciones de ningún servicio (gmail, calendario) aunque ya permití las notificaciones de escritorio.
  • (2020-04-02) Rodrigo Lloclla: Es muy util porque te muestra lo que más uso
  • (2020-03-28) Lindsey Leeanna: Initial reaction : Thank You ! :) So very useful at helping resolve the 50 billion open tabs every five minutes problem that I have.
  • (2020-03-19) 吴博: 这玩意如果配上Chromebook,简直完美了!
  • (2020-03-14) Sushi Holy: Chromeから他のGoogleサービスへアクセスするには、現状新しいタブを開いてルービックアイコンを個別にタップするか、個々の拡張を大量に入れてバナーにアイコンを並べるしかない。 この優秀な拡張を導入することで、全てのアクセスが一箇所から可能になり、小さな専用の窓内で情報が自在に切り替えられるので、タブ切り替えによる情報の遮断も回避出来てしまう。 なぜ公式がやらないのかとか、買収すればいいのにとか考えてしまう(※)が、 個人的にGoogleのアカウントや複数のサービスと密接に連携するアプリは「セキュリティ上、Google印(運営や作成)に限定する」ことで心の安寧を図っているタイプなので、こーいうアプリはGoogle印にしてもらいたいという願望を、ずっと抱いている… ※繰り返し×10 個人的なポリシーに背いて、普通に使えばいいのですけどね。
  • (2020-03-05) 晨曦探索: 正如这个 插件的标语:探索google从未如此简单。
  • (2020-02-28) EL DESAKATAO XXX: excelente app muy cómoda
  • (2020-02-18) Bruno Manfredi: I really like this extension, the customization is great and the integration works like a charm. It extends functionality of many google apps that don't need to be open on a new tab, like keep and translate. But as many have mentioned, it opens a new tab when the extension is updated. This is sometimes a big annoyance, sometimes not so much. It depends greatly on what you're doing at the moment and the urgency. It also depends on chrome which will sometimes focus on the tab and sometimes wont. THIS NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. No other extension does this so why should this one? the use of the extension is not criticall, so why should it notify for every update? is it to promote the donation to the devs? because I understand you want people to notice your work, but I think there are better alternatives. Really the only reason why I will not ever donate for this extension is because of that. Alternatives for the annoying tab could be to add a donation button on the menu, show a notification on the extension or trough chrome notifications (I mean, the app already has notification support for other g-apps), even an e-mail would be more acceptable. Remove the tab, and this becomes one of the best and donation worthy chrome extensions.
  • (2020-02-18) JD Mason: One of Google Chrome's Best! How about offering some other colors e.g. Forest Green Menu for Google?
  • (2020-02-14) Alei So: It's great this is created but ...Very Slow Running/Loading. Also when saving in bookmark it is not as convenient as just a click or two to save it. I hope it can be improved to make it more easier for users like me who likes to save/bookmark a lot. Thank you.
