  • (2021-12-03) Alexander Berkovich: Spent time to do the page to my liking and was enjoying it for several days. Until everything gone because the extension has updated, thank you very much!
  • (2021-10-06) Matthew M: Works fine, but was better before they remade how the tile grid works and when it offered a notepad widget
  • (2021-07-29) Andrew: 크롬 업데이트할때마다 설정해둔 아이콘 이미지가 업로드 안되어서 다시 지정해야하네요 이거 언제 오류 고침?

  • (2021-03-03) Marcos Lli: Está increible
  • (2021-02-21) Arturo Cortés: El muy buena y muy personalizable pero aunque encienda la opción de no mostrar botones de izquierda hasta tocarlos cada vez que abro una pestaña nueva se quedan ahi por un segundo hasta que desaparecen es bastante molesto y no me deja usarla tranquilo espero haya solución agradecería sus respuestas.
  • (2021-02-20) miffu: I like it, but I wish I could change the size of the widgets, but overall it's great!
  • (2020-12-10) Miko Huang: Tutorial says "Here you'll find all of the apps that you've installed from the Chrome Web Store." But, I don't see any of my apps installed from the Chrome Web Store. It's VERY VERY difficult to add a tab for me. You need to provide a youtube video for using this extension.
  • (2020-11-30) Charles Shin: Like it, not love it. Wish I could customize the size of the tiles (not the number of tiles available).
  • (2020-11-24) iifloxra: deleted this instantly this is horrible i dont reccemoned it and you have to unlock wigets was annoying
  • (2020-11-24) Vincent Langemeijer: Once you figure out how it works, it's pretty good. Most annoying thing for me was figuring out how to fit my personal background image to the screen. To save everybody else some time, you can do this by entering "center center/cover no-repeat fixed" (without quotation marks) after the background image's url.
  • (2020-11-20) Christian Eff: The idea is great, unfortunately execution isn't. There's a lot of recurring bugs. The color picker never closes, background disappears, the tile icons reappear, row and coloumn count in settings tab keeps getting higher once you hovered over the small arrow and so on. FIX THIS bugs and it is a 5-star extension.
  • (2020-10-08) Juan Pablo Mariscal: Me encanta el diseño, muy recomendado. Aunque me gustaría que permitiera modificar el tamaño de los iconos.
  • (2020-10-06) hns: last update is dogshit
  • (2020-10-05) Luís Mariano: A recent change to the widget (read: the icons that pop out when you hover the mouse on the left side of the page are now always out) have made me dislike it.
  • (2020-09-15) PauStockli: Very useful and 100% customizable
  • (2020-09-04) Vincent Grinn: latest update causes fav icon and name to reappear every time its opened
  • (2020-09-04) Wesley van Peer: Since today suddenly the Name and Favicon of the websites are shown in the boxes of Awesome New Tab Page. Although all the switches are OFF, still the names and favicons are shown. This is quite annoying. Resetting the settings back to default didn't work either. Can this please be fixed? (I can send screenshots if need be)
  • (2020-09-04) Omar Ihab: Using it for years, but what's up with the latest update today making all the favicons and names appear?
  • (2020-09-04) swalsugmass: Since the latest update the Show/ Hide Name setting and the Show/ Hide Favicon setting resets.
  • (2020-08-23) Ken Win Kok: Seems like it intermittently makes your search bar Yahoo search which is really annoying because Google search knows what I expect to see when I search for things, Yahoo does not. I've tried to turn it off in the settings and extensions settings but it doesn't seem to work. Only noticed the difference when in incognito mode where I have ANTP disabled, so I've never had a problem with Yahoo search in incognito mode.
  • (2020-07-11) Douglas Rodrigues Ponciano: I love this extension! I installed it a few minutes ago and finished configuring it all, my way. It seems very stable and functional. Also, the visuals are very clean. I hope it keeps working well and I'm going to use it for a long time. Thanks!
  • (2020-07-01) Amr Alsayed: good
  • (2020-04-14) Srivastav J: Love the app, my only concern is how do i REARRANGE it? in edit mode i do see the blue dots on the widgets - but cant drag them!, any advice if i'm missing something?
  • (2020-04-13) P Tan: This has been my default new tab land page for years. Nothing to complain! The way these affiliated services show up from time to time is not intrusive and doesn't bother me at all. i understand you have to generate revenue some way somehow and I am ok with that. Keep up the good works guys.
  • (2020-04-08) Иван Хмелевский: Terribly outdated, clunky animations, vertical scrolling is intermittent and the hole design is from 2013 or smth.
  • (2020-03-24) Mateo: está genial es la que utiliza orslok 👍😀 https://www.twitch.tv/orslok
  • (2020-03-24) Jean-Rémi Tessier: I have it for so much years for my home page. Indispensable ! Nice and simple.
  • (2020-03-13) Alexandre Pana: 10/10. I've been using this for years. It's surprisingly customizable, you can really make it look exactly how you want.
  • (2020-03-02) Jerry Parz: Simply wanted to change the ugly wood backgound. Chose a nice color but it wouldn't "set". I didn't bother trying an image which I don't have. Uninstalling it.
  • (2020-02-28) Mahmud Fatahović: Great
  • (2020-01-27) Horst: I use it for year, but now it always start with a popup message, show me Awesome New Tab Page Apps every day. How can I turn it off? I like this extension. Please, help
  • (2020-01-25) Patricia Wynne: I loved it a few years ago, but lately it has been a pain to keep straight, and the most annoying thing is that now I get two pop ups that almost covers my entire page EVERYTIME I open it. I exit out of them, but sometimes they pop right back up and ALWAYS when I open Chrome. I am thinking of removing it and just making desktop shortcuts...MOST AGGRAVATING!!!!!!!!!
  • (2019-11-26) Manek Iridius: My issue is not with this add-on, my issue is with Google Chrome and the fact that I was required to find and install a third-party program for the SOLE PURPOSE of applying resizing handles to the sides of Chrome's window. This is a basic convenience, and has been the main function of window-based user interfaces, LITERALLY, since the very advent of them. Whoever is making design decisions at Google is out of touch at best, and intentionally malicious at worst. Thank you for creating a workaround for an issue that should not have been an issue in the first place.
  • (2019-11-03) PJ Finster: Keeps crashing and I lose my whole layout. It has happened 4 times now over 2 month period. Back up is worthless.
  • (2019-10-04) Emily Ihasz: I love being able to have what I need right at my fingertips on the Awesome New Tab Page and I like that I can personalize each square with whatever image I want, can move or delete the squares if I like and I have as many squares to use as I need. My page is set up exactly as I want and it saves me time every day.
  • (2019-09-24) Pulkit Sharma: Been using it for 4-5 years easy now. The extension's ability to save your set up in the layout you set it up in matched with Google Chrome saving your preferences if you're signed in has made it super easy for me to keep using it wherever I go or on whatever machine I'm using! Great extension. Highly recommend it.
  • (2019-09-10) Caroline Troullis: I used to love this so much, but in the past 2 days it has become corrupted and unusable. Will happily rerate and use again if this gets fixed!
  • (2019-09-01) Edgar Negrete: So the widget just decided to become corrupted... now all my settings are gone... the thing is, the online backups too! what the H happened? Watching recent reviews it seems i am not alone in this.
  • (2019-08-31) Alarming Alarm: I have used this extension for years and I've never had any problems with it aside from the Sphere widget being forcefully put on my page when I try to edit it (which can be deleted right after anyways).
  • (2019-07-11) Laura: I loved this app. I enjoyed having all my sites in one place and had no complaints. However, I don't know if this app has been abandoned or what, but this is the 2 time in a few weeks the extension has become corrupted. When it is repairs all your shortcuts are gone. I specifically backed up the last time to avoid this....now my back ups are gone. This app was great but seems to be neglected now.
  • (2019-06-22) Dev Mukerjee: Is there any way to increase the favicon generated automatically when a URL is entered into a new tab link? I dont want to go making/adding my own icons because it is a tiresome process. I just want the automatically generated favicon to be as large as possible even if it gets pixellated a bit. Please give me any workarounds on this issue.
  • (2019-06-17) Michael Oppenheimer: This has been one of my favorite things about Chrome ... until the meta tile widget I'd based my whole page on disappeared from the chrome extensions library and thus when my desktop crashed and I had to reinstall chrome 95% of my tiles were blank and useless. I have extensive bookmarks, so I'll probably just leave it in hopes that the missing widget will someday return, but it's pretty useless to me now, and I have no desire to fix it as it is :(
  • (2019-05-13) Oliver Löwenherz: After reading the reviews I have to write my own. I use this Extension since beginning of this year ( months by now) and I love it! I use it to link all my favorite Internet Shows - AND it looks awesome! But not only this, Its super practical, saves some time for alternatively search my shows and looks super nice! I had the Problem, that Pictures went missing, when the linked website went offline - which is logic and no mistake of the programm. I used the backup function, worked perfect! So for me, I see no negativ, I have no problem with another Add Ons and I will not live without it, since it is such an Stylish way of heaving a starting tab!
  • (2019-05-07) Daryl Druktenis: This has been my favorite for a very long time!!

  • (2022-08-14, v:2020.442.69) Mark Ezrin: App extention issies
    The app seems to constantly get disabled. Also, almost all the icons and shortcuts are gone. The calculator, conversion tool and everything else. Am I missing something here?
  • (2022-07-24, v:2020.442.69) Boris Popovich: Can you edit the Google box that's built in? There is no edit button

  • (2022-06-18, v:2020.442.69) leo zemke: ANTP keeps turning off

  • (2022-05-21, v:2020.442.69) Pete SMurph: All my icons keep disappearing
    As reported by "Posted by Micah Dirksen - Nov 22" (this was last year so 2021 I assume): "All my icons keep disappearing" This is essentially occurring with my laptop as well! This tends to be extremely frustrating, when one goes through all the steps to replace a custom desktop with my chosen graphics (ie: screen contained or not....page choice etc)....and it has been working fine for years!!! Now all of a sudden...all graphics disappear.....EXCEPT...for the "F" for Facebook and the Clock image !!!! Assuming this was just a "glitch"....I again set them up....went along fine for a day or two...and then bam.....gone again.....EXCEPT for the "F" for Facebook and the Clock image !!!! Seeing as this was publicized by Micah Dirksen this past November....ONE MUST WONDER....is there in fact....ANY SUPPORT FOR THIS AWESOME NEW TAB PAGE?????? I am running the latest release of Windows 10 hosting Chrome Version 101.0.4951.67 (Official Build) (64-bit), which per Chrome is "Chrome is up to date". My hardware is a System Manufacturer Acer, System Model Spin SP515-51N; running OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home, Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043 Looking forward to a response of Supported or NOT? Thanks

ESPAÑOL: La función "buscar" (esa donde aparece una barra de búsqueda) no funciona normalmente y solo funciona luego de clickear el candado dos veces (shortcut: L)(activar y desactivar).
  • (2022-02-07, v:2020.442.69) Eric Mohs: Migrating Custom Extensions
    I have several ANTP widgets (extensions) that I have either created myself or found on github and modified for my own use. Now, Chrome is insisting that I update them to manifest v3, and I've tried to make them work, but apparently, I'm not as smart as I think. Is there a primer on how to code these things?
  • (2021-11-22, v:2020.442.69) Micah Dirksen: All my icons keep disappearing
    Title. I set up my ANTP with all the icons and links I want, yet regularly when I open a new tab everything is blank. I reported this issue previously and got no response. Are you still supporting this extension or do I need to find a new one?

  • (2020-11-01, v:2020.442.69) Lisa de las Fuentes: Widgets stopped working.
    I have loved this extension for a few years now. Recently, I have been unable to add Widgets to my grid, and existing widgets no longer work. When I try to add new widgets, I'm told to unlock my grid even when my grid has been unlocked. Please fix - love your product.

    Using awesome new tab for years. Since yesterday (there was a chrome update to Version 86.0.4240.75) the search fields are not available anymore, when moving the mouse over it. I have to unlock and lock again via the unlock button - >afterwards the search fields are available again. This must be done with each new tab again.

  • (2020-10-14, v:2020.441.68) Norman Pemper: Problems making the app unusable
    About a week ago, I opened up Chrome as I always do, and all of the custom screenshots from the links were gone. In addition, the grid is unstable. Upon opening, the screen snaps to the bottom of the grid. The horizontal width is seemingly maxed out with empty grid block, despite having selected Hide Horizontal blocks. This is when it gets really annoying. I'm unable to manually select a horizontal or vertical grid size. Any attempt to set them and the select box controlling the numbers automatically speeds through min->max or vice versa. It won't stop, I can't manually add a number. I've used this for a long time. But I'm starting to look for a replacement.

  • (2013-12-12, v:2013.493.18) Issa Rafeedie: Not working
    This is not working anymore suddenly. I've tried removing and re-adding to chrome. All I get is a black screen with the six tabs on the top left nothing else. When I point to star the bubble says "Awesome New Tab page Pro" but nothing happens when I click on it. I didn't add the pro version. I cannot unlock. Clicking on Configure, it comes up but nothing is functional. I reset things and everything goes back to setting when opening configure. This is a great App but was really disappointed when the advertising was snuck in. It took me a while to find it and deactivate it. But at least it was working then. Now nothing is working, just a black screen with the six tabs on the top left nothing else. If I don't hear from someone soon I will remove from chrome. Thank you.

    Keeps popping up advertisements when i hover over images. This used to be a simple and clean design, but it now has been tainted with greed. Please remove this terrible feature, and stop selling us. We trusted you, and you have betrayed us. Thank you for the awesome new tab page. It really has been awesome. It will be uninstalled because of this problem.
  • (2013-12-09, v:2013.493.18) Callum Vibert: Adware
    This extension has changed recently, and now inserts irritating and unsolicited popup adverts into many unrelated web pages without user consent.
  • (2013-12-04, v:2013.492.17) Julian Dunster: Pop ups

  • (2013-12-03, v:2013.492.17) Privacy
    I have stopped using this extension because the new version requires permission to: 1. Access your data on all web sites. 2. Access your tabs and browsing activity. 3. Manage your apps, extensions and themes. You don't need these permissions, and as long as you demand them, then I won't use or recommend this for others. Did you guys get a new job with the NSA?
