  • (2021-10-26) Claribel Sanchez: I like this app. Simple and no fuss, works great
  • (2021-09-23) Lorcen Zhou: For putting the extensions into a group. Check the comment of "@Rich Tatum 20210429", on how to use the drag and drop in the "popup.html" to create a "New Group".
  • (2021-05-06) Oleksandr Sagittarius: Very Useful. Maybe can take some collections for some sceneries (few ext on/off in one click). For example I need download some video and on download manager, yt downloader, etc. After off this exts and on other list for work with images for example... And add custom descriptions or tags for search.
  • (2021-04-29) Rich Tatum: 𝗥𝗘𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗠𝗘𝗡𝗗𝗘𝗗: I’ve tried a dozen extension switchers and was also trying to find a way to manage "groups" of extensions in an easy and efficient way. I’ve been using Switcher for years, but only recently noticed that I actually could create “groups,” and that extensions could belong to more than one group. Though it’s not clear whether I can change the order of the groups I’ve created, this made the extension 10× more valuable to me, and also makes it far-far superior to all the other switchers/managers I’ve tried. For complaints about the UI — it may look a little old or outdated, but its minimalism and straightforwardness is actually refreshing. Having tried many of the other card-based GUIs, Switcher’s simple checkbox-and-list approach puts the most information on the screen possible, and makes it much easier to manage extensions — especially if you have dozens installed at any given time. ❤ I’m back to loving Switcher and uninstalled all my other extension managers.
  • (2021-04-21) Artemi Lebedev: Great, but need Tabs to transition to items
  • (2021-03-23) CC Lee: Does anyone know how to group the extension (as shown on the video)? It does not work for me
  • (2021-03-18) Karl Masterr: 6* Would like: 1) DARK Mode 2) PIN / UNPIN icon next to each extension
  • (2021-01-03) Luca Gentile: This extension is just supreme. A MUST HAVE! It works smartly and smoothly, it's also really intuitive, practical, and efficient.\ THE GOOD Lightweight, Intuitive, ´Undo´ option (so that you can deactivate all the active extensions just for short) Buttons to go straight to apps options Quick link to uninstall apps List of apps by ´enabled´ THE BAD It would be nice if there could be some more features: Organize extensions and apps by category or customized. Donate link (I would love to chip in a coffee for the developer!) BOTTOM LINE This should be a native extension for Chrome, it's really necessary and effective to keep overview and easy access to all software in Chrome. Every day I love this extension more!
  • (2021-01-01) Shmuel: not been able to group, watched the video 4 times I can't reproduce that, maybe its a new bug, I'll be happy to change if it is fixed edit: also it has not been updated a long time so it is abandonware
  • (2020-09-04) P N: Pratique, mais je l'adorerai s'il y avait des profiles. Le plus de cette extension: permet de visualiser rapidement les extensions activées/désactivées/les thèmes/les applications. Mais: L'extension semble consommer pas mal de mémoire parce que j'ai eu du "freeze".
  • (2020-07-29) Jesse Lee: but how to group? the only feature i need...
  • (2020-07-09) Dianne DeSha: The first thing I add to any new Chrome installation. Been using it for years. It's solid, reliable, and makes things much easier. Could you ask for anything more? :)
  • (2020-04-07) Agostino Peyretti: Sono anni ormai che uso questa estensione per Chrome, è fondamentale! Potete accendere e spegnere tutte le volte che vi servono le estensioni senza appesantire il vostro browser con funzioni che vi portano via solo memoria e potenza di calcolo, ve la consiglio davvero. Utilissima, funziona perfettamente, una volta installata non ne potrete più fare a meno!
  • (2020-01-30) Second Life Around: Not sure if the developer reads these or takes any suggestions, but just in case I wanted to first of all say thank you for making such an amazing and consistently great extension. All I wanted to request is if you could possibly add the feature for the user to select from their own or at least a few options for the extension icon that appears on the extensions area when using the browser. I would BE SO GREATFUL if you could add this...the best would be to allow the user to select whatever icon he wants to use. Thanks in advance for your time and all your amazing work! God Bless. ORIGINAL COMMENT; Easily one of the TOP 5 BEST CHROME EXTENSIONS OF ALL TIME.
  • (2020-01-23) Mark Woo: I like it, it's great. However, I find it too easy to enable/disable extensions. I would prefer if there were some kind of password/PIN that prevents people from just disabling extensions, then that would be great. This is especially true when I want to disable an extension that's supposed to help me be productive or manage my time better.
  • (2020-01-10) Leo: its okay. did not like the UI. was hard to toggle the extensions each time.
  • (2019-12-29) Muhammed AK: The plugin is very nice but cannot create a group at this time. If it solves this problem I will give it 5 stars.
  • (2019-12-06) Robert Koeppel: This app is fantastic. If my taskbar get's crowded, I fire up extensions manager and deactivate or activate any apps I need. This app lets you control your extension apps without leaving the page you're on.
  • (2019-11-18) sz tar: excelente. Ajuda muito.
  • (2019-11-17) Rachel Phillips: -1 star for not being able to print the list of the extensions otherwise a good dashboard for the extensions management
  • (2019-10-20) Paul Wieland: As I crash various browsers and have to reconfigure... Extensions Manager *Switcher) is always the first extension I look to replace. It's not all that pretty but at the top of the list of functional apps... Thanx
  • (2019-10-05) 达芬奇: 没有分组功能
  • (2019-08-20) Al Lougher: Waste of time since groups option was removed. I need something where I can quickly disable/enable only those extensions currently in use. This does not give me that.
  • (2019-08-01) TD Smith: Sooo useful. Been using this thing for a long time and am continually impressed by how much utility it provides. I couldn't imagine Chrome without it at this point. Such a time saver. Update 2019 FOUR YEARS LATER: Still THE best. There is far more competition in this space than ever before and none of them even come close to the OG. (I know it isn't technically the first but was the first to pull it off so well) THIS IS THE ONE. (sorry for the caps but it is impossible to find this extension with all the trash extension managers out there named similar names. Search for Extension Switcher makes it a bit easier. One of my fav extensions of all time and cannot live without at this point.
  • (2019-06-21) Sonoma Mann: Love this little thing!! Elegant, powerful, indispensable if you like to use extensions. One click lists extensions, apps, themes, everything. One click to enable/disable extensions, uninstall them, set their settings, read their documentation, shop for more, remind yourself what's all up in there.. Chrome's regular extension handling is just impossibly, comically clumsy (menu > more tools > extensions? Really? Every single time?) and this amazing utility is convenient, intuitive, and well designed.
  • (2019-06-05) Max Nizamov: Was working OK, but now it cannot remove other extensions when I push the basket icon!
  • (2019-06-03) Julian Pardo: Imprescindible para activar extensiones con permisos invasivos solo cuando es necesario
  • (2019-06-02) Thibault de Changy: Awesome potential but grouping doesn't work anymore, and can't find a similar plugin. Does anyone found an alternative ? Enabling/disabling by group is the most important feature here, making it useless without it :-/
  • (2019-05-18) Equinox TB: If you're looking for a extension manager that has a drop down menu, a dis/enable all button, has a whole bunch of options and settings, THIS IS THE MANAGER FOR YOU!!!
  • (2019-04-21) Eric H: I've been using Extensions Manager (aka Switcher) for several years with a consistent & great experience. It's simple to use, provides easy access (even when compared to Google's convoluted & hard to find extension page) to your installed extensions so you can enable, disable, or remove them as needed. I've tried other Ext Managers, this one is by far the most convenient. Highly recommended.
  • (2019-03-30) Alexandr Bragin: Повелся на разные восхваления и описания. Зря. Расширение разработчиком забыто, из всех функций уцелели только те, которые прекрасно выполняются хромом самостоятельно. Все остальное, в том числе и темы, не работает. Абсолютно бесполезное расширение.
  • (2019-03-10) C N Naylor: Just what I needed to easily access the ever increasing number of extensions I keep adding to Crome.
  • (2019-03-09) I have over 300 extensions installed and tested almost ALL plugins for control. NONE is more perfect, practical, functional and complete than this. More than enabling or disabling it allows access to the options, filter BY DESCRIPTION (this for me was the icing on the cake and won me once), doesn't lose the typed filter when you open the window again, lets you directly access Chrome Store and so so much more!!! All in a single window! Would be amazing have the option to create profiles to be able to enable and disable by profile, but nevertheless not the best. More than 5 stars!
  • (2019-01-22) Ali Ridha: this extension is outdated and need to add new features and fix bugs
  • (2018-12-03) 小齐: 最吼的!
  • (2018-10-19) Phương Trần Đức: Recent sort not work
  • (2018-05-30) 在Mac上占用太多CPU资源
  • (2018-05-22) google fang: 简直完美!!!
  • (2018-05-21) Biggus Dickus: It does what it's supposed to do.But the interface looks like it's from the 90's. And everytime I have to disable or enable something, I have to squint my eyes & browse from top to bottom. Found another extension that does exactly what this one does, but only more simpler, more efficient and visually pleasant.
  • (2018-04-12) aa: This one essential extension, easy click to activate/deactivate extensions in case something went wrong. Help me once to pinpoint one bad extension named: "Fix URL Links Redirect", which block download from codeproject.com and screwed over other major web like pinterest and yahoo mail.
  • (2018-03-19) Nataline Noumberg: I can't create groups from lists, rename, groups, or do other key behavio
  • (2018-03-15) Patrick Lockerman: I wish it wasn't abandoned.
  • (2018-03-13) I rarely review software. This is an exception - a superb and unexpected change to the way I work. Congratulations!
  • (2018-03-07) Lennard Datema: This is the most useful extension I have, weirdly enough. Works even better than expected

  • (2021-04-21, v: Claire: export should include enabled/disable setting per extension
    When importing/exporting the settings i.e. to copy the setup from chrome browser to another instance it would be nice if the export included the on/off settings of each extension as it currently can be time consuming to individually set each extension to enabled or disabled.

  • (2020-12-04, v: Pavel X: Баг
    Установил приложение и установил более десятка тем для браузера, но в какой-то момент темы перестали переключаться. Я вышел из Хрома, после повторного открытия во вкладке "Themes" уже было пусто.
  • (2020-12-02, v: Jeff N: Awesome extension
    I think an awesome feature would be profiles for the extensions. So you could create different groups of extensions to come on and off.
  • (2020-06-15, v: Gina Kahai: Cant see actual list
    The window is wide but not long enough to show the list of extensions. It is not dragable; I cannot make the window bigger to show the list. I have always loved your extension. Please fix!

  • (2020-02-19, v: Tom Loiacono: Extensions Manager for Firefox
    Hi -- Do you offer the Extensions Manager extension for Firefox? I've looked but can't find anything. I loved it in Chrome but have since switched to FF. Thanks.
  • (2019-10-27, v: Jeff N: Problem with program names on extension
    I am having this problem where some of the extension names are off-centered and blocking the next name on the list. It never did this before.
  • (2019-10-18, v: Hasan Oguz: cant create group

    I cannot get groups to work as shown on the video. It would be awesome, it's exactly what't missing for it to be PERFECT!
  • (2019-09-19, v: Vasco Moura Esteves: Popup Menu Height
    Thank you very much for your extension. It would be very useful if you let users define Popup Menu Height, because it would be possible to adapt the Popup Menu Height to the height of the screen and so the access to the last extensions would be quicker.
  • (2019-09-03, v: Onais: Group Function
    Cant add groups. This has been mentioned before, please address issue
  • (2019-08-09, v: Zamar Ac: Extension Groups
    Thanks for the extension. Can I use it to group installed Chrome extensions by purpose or any other criteria? How to create an extension group?
  • (2019-07-10, v: Chrome user: the extension's logo is actually meant to illustrate erectile dysfunction
    are you sure you've choose the right logo for your extension? (which (the extension, not the logo) itself is brilliant btw! thx for your work!) because this specific image is definitely created to illustrate the men's erectile dysfunction :) https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/switch-off-1066426.jpg
