Latest reviews

  • (2023-08-29) Korutz: 1 star for trimming down features and making them premium-only
  • (2023-08-09) Dave Remmel: Nice idea, but... a) Needs to many permissions (read content of ALL websites you browse for a new-tab-addon?) b) very buggy (resizing and placing widgets is a big pain) c) Too expensive. A subscription for a simple tool like this, just to get transparent widgets? Seriously??? I'm happy to pay for good software. But for small tools like this I expect a one time fee. And it's way too buggy to pay for it.
  • (2023-07-23) Rob Musgrove: I've used it for years, and when it works, it's fine. But it regularly overloads feedly, which results in no news feeds being updated, sometimes for weeks at a time. So your home page ends showing you headlines and info from weeks ago. I've communicated my grievances about this to the developers and they seem unable to apply any kind of lasting fix. So I'm done with it. RSS is a dying technology, anyway.
  • (2023-07-05) Mihail Amurov: Not bad, but kmon, $5 to get rid of ugly add banner is too much.
  • (2023-04-12) Hugo Ulfberg: Really good and it's free so I can't really ask for more.
  • (2023-03-14) Stepan Turitsin: I did not pay attention to the pro features and was happy with the free version. I don't care about transparency. Today I go and see that there was a terrible update. Now only the light theme is available, and the standard dark theme is only for the pro. Full-screen mode for news was also free, now paid, and there were ads. I will not write "return as it was", because still won't return. Just look for an alternative and don't bother with it.
  • (2022-12-12) Thomas Moser: Loved it - today an update cam and all my data is lost and demo content is displayed. Is there a way to get back my dashboard as it was?
  • (2022-12-08) CentRe WebDesign: Has the customizable stuff you are probably looking for.
  • (2022-09-06) Jigyasu Rajput: Best ever extension i have ever got for staying productive ....love it
  • (2022-08-17) Jon: 6 years user here... TERRIBLE EXTENSION! Full of bugs on almost every single widget. RSS feeds never work correctly. Reddit widget is full of bugs. Same for twitter. Stock widget is even worse. Nothing works correctly. Annoying ads and sponsored google search. WORST OF ALL: Developers don't care, they never fix anything even when you report the bugs to support. GARBAGE.
  • (2022-08-17) Pasko Zhelev: The best chrome tab!
  • (2022-04-26) Pedro Kkkk: good
  • (2022-03-14) Kevin Davis: LOVE IT!!! Love the options, however, I don't know how to remove the widgets off the dashboard w/o deleting them permanently. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP, LOL! Thank you!
  • (2022-02-23) Vaclav Zak: Wow, great extension. Exactly what I need.
  • (2022-02-16) ParaBellum United: So far so excellent.... kind of laggy, but very customizable. 7/10.... SO FAR.
  • (2022-01-22) Lad Zappa: It's extremely ugly for today's design standards. And you have to pay just to change to a dark transparent theme. Yuck. Also, BBC and MSN news? No thanks.
  • (2022-01-06) David Payne: Extension requires with subscription of $4.99 per month or $29.99 per year. pretty sure there is a million other tools that can do exactly what this can, dont let the TERRIBLE/SUSPICIOUS search functionality for the Chrome Web Store get in your way when it only shows promoted and subscription hungry extensions like this get in your way. search on google: "site:chrome.google.com new tab page" (without quotes) and I guarantee that you'll find at least 20 extensions better than this that are free with developers who actually should be making extensions.
  • (2021-12-23) Utkan Utar: Güzel.
  • (2021-12-01) Steve Blake: Not very impressed. I can't resize the widgets, and they don't seem to do what I want. Eg I can get an Android widget on my phone, which forecasts by the hour, is resizeable and it's free! On this site, which is ad supported, the one I want isn't. Etc.
  • (2021-10-03) Alex Canton: dark mode should not be a pro feature
  • (2021-09-26) 乘物游心: Very useful extension, but it seems that the author has lost enthusiasm, which is really a pity.
  • (2021-09-07) strum: Buggy, Ads, even basic features behind a "pro" version. Honestly there a hundred better alternatives out there. Steer clear.
  • (2021-08-26) Nhan La: (2015) Had everything I wanted to make my tab useful. Been using it for over a year now :) (2021) Update: Been using this extensions for many years now, but this extension has gone downhill since. The last update was from March 2021, and it is clear that this extension is now abandoned. This is a shame because I really loved this extension, but now it is unusable with the lack of management.
  • (2021-08-01) Dede Irfan Fauzi: amazing
  • (2021-07-27) Santiago Trevi: I freaking love it. I was thinking to install a checklist in my home search page but this is better.
  • (2021-06-28) Lulu Yang: Would be perfect if it didn't andomly reset to settings from a random amount of time ago. Had to re-do my set up multiple times and now I've given up
  • (2021-06-28) Jason Naugle: Awesome app for my studio and all-around business
  • (2021-06-04) Davex1555: Epic (dear people who don't know how o do stuff, did you even LOOK at the tutorial???) pro HIGHLY customizable Can change your search engine many different apps very sleek in design easy to use you can have everything in only one tab cons Moving stuff is quite hard and is sometimes a pain There is a ad(only one tho) starting might be a bit confusing (DONT SKIP THE TUTORIAL)
  • (2021-05-10) Laurent Pompairac-Gentil: Great customisation
  • (2021-03-16) Mason Decker: i can see this new tab page.
  • (2021-03-16) Roberto Ortízgris: A alguien le está apareciendo facebook y keep "rechazó la conexión" ???
  • (2021-03-15) Bob Simmons: Forces you to use Bing search????? I tried many times to change it over to google but always Bing.
  • (2021-02-20) Nate Howard: This is a very customizable, really useful new tab page. The main thing it suffers from is the inability to upload custom images for site links. When creating a site link, you MUST specify a URL for the logo, and file:/// references don't work.
  • (2021-02-19) Random Videos and vlogs: Is this a fake one? I found two of the same extension.
  • (2021-02-16) S King: In addition to collecting all your stats, it literally puts ads on your new tab page. Complete garbage philosophy behind the great idea.
  • (2021-01-22) David Bjelland: Representative example of the design quality for the extension as a whole: In order to move a widget around, you have to hover over a precise *4x4 pixel target* in an ellipses-menu-that-isn't-actually-a-menu. Gotta admire the audacity of asking people to either view ads or pay $5 a month for this
  • (2021-01-07) Sparsha Dhar: Reaaly good, infact the best customisable tab! Love it!
  • (2020-12-28) Where The Fox Hides Where The Fox Hides: *IT'S ALL LOCKED BEHIND A PAY WALL, DO NOT INSTALL, CONTAINS VIRUS TOO* Many issues. My Malwarebytes kept detecting Adware from this extension, which it blocked every single one. Why is there adware in this extension? The customization feels very lackluster (No way to change colour because I had to pay) The weather app didn't seem to recognize 'United Kingdom' which is... dumb to say the least. The background doesn't even change which just seems lazy to me?
  • (2020-12-16) luna luna: Nice i love it
  • (2020-11-16) Povilas Brilius: Truly good new tab app, solves many problems, including AI on desktop stage - laptop case involved.
  • (2020-10-22) Marshall Lee: omg sooooooo coooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool for edukaision (.
  • (2020-10-19) Grace Lamas: I use this extension many times per day every day. I have been able with the Pro version to optimize customizing pages that help me keep various aspects of my life organized with information a click away. I ran into a problem after an update where my customized pages disappeared but their customer service tech people were able to get them back and for that I thank them. It took a couple of weeks but they came through as they had promised they would.
  • (2020-08-31) sebastian gersbach: Ha perdido sus funcionalidades básicas que tenía en un principio. No conecta con Feedly (no permite cargar los RSS), no conecta con el Tiempo correctamente, ni siquiera los anuncios cargan bien... una pena.
  • (2020-08-17) MUKESH BADIGINENI: The Features are very good but the UI is pulling down your extension.
  • (2020-06-30) Mike Kaplan: Good - seems pretty useful
  • (2020-04-15) Andrea Chan: Exactly what I was looking for!
  • (2020-04-14) Monospace V: It's one of the most useful chrome extensions around, and is like a desktop- but customizable.
  • (2020-04-09) jim simonson: so far I like. I wish there were a widget to quick link my google photos. still nice.
  • (2020-04-09) chaoticorchid: I like it, I can edit it however I want and the backgrounds are nice.
  • (2020-04-09) p ho: The ads are unbearable. I don't appreciate their tracking either. Uninstalled within a minute.

  • (2015-02-14, v:2.1.8) Chameleon091: Not as advertised...
    I got IChrome because it looked like something useful. But it has no settings other than the ones on the individual widgets that came with it.. like 3 or 4. No options for more, no options for visual changes... nothing.. just stuck with an not so attractive background and a couple of widgets. NOT what I saw and was attracted to! How do I get what was promised?
  • (2015-02-14, v:2.1.8) Stefanie Hudgins: widgets
    how do I remove and add widgets?
  • (2015-02-11, v:2.1.8) Rhiannon B.: Facebook widget blank
    Hey - Thanks for creating this, appreciated. I've ran into a bit of a glitch it seems, the Facebook widget is blank - it will not even display anything, just a white square. Within the settings option it lets me choose the size, but that's it. Help please :) Thanks!
  • (2015-02-09, v:2.1.8) Fauzi Bin Ridho (FONZ): remove top bar, hide settings/profiles, and change 'upload an image' in themes settings
    id like the top bar removed and the buttons to be hidden to add more screen space. i sort of dislike having to scroll down just to see the 'see more' button fully shown. should be helpful to those with smaller screens. and can you please change the button to make it something along the lines of 'browse from computer' or something? i thought it actually meant upload an image somewhere then use it as the wallpaper.
  • (2015-02-09, v:2.1.8) Valerie Adrian: IChrome reset to default
    My iChrome New Tab just randomly reset to the default. Now my important notes and to do lists are gone, replaced with blank default ones. Very disappointed. Any way to fix this?
