  • (2020-01-06) E Corcoran: Jerry Gassie's tip worked. Keep refreshing the page.
  • (2019-09-19) Aerial: Doesn't work.
  • (2019-06-27) Christopher Sands: No longer working in latest Chrome, as others have reported. Will update my review when I can try it out - looks great.
  • (2019-04-11) Dan Leyzberg: Doesn't seem to work on the latest versions of Gmail and Chrome. Specifically, hiding the Google bar at the top of Gmail is broken. :'-(
  • (2019-01-02) Madsen Altamirano: TL;DR Dashboard button doesn't work and in general this doesn't do it's job. The dashboard button doesn't work because it opens a tab that says "my file may have been moved or deleted", so right clicking the extension and clicking "options" takes me to the dashboard. From there, I find a module for Gmail. I start ticking different things to try this out, but when I save the settings and open Gmail, nothing happens!
  • (2018-12-06) Christo: Does not work in the latest version of Chrome
  • (2018-11-18) Timothy Tyler: I know how to code html css and little bit a java script was really looking forward to this but when i launched it it opened up little window and then went to create new module and it opened a page like a 404 not found error thought it was me so tried again same thing . Doesnt work 1 star.
  • (2018-08-21) Not working in Chrome 68. Uninstalled.
  • (2018-05-25) Steeltrap [SAFHAZ]: it was to much work
  • (2017-01-05) Fred Golightly: No longer supported by Chrome, no updates, no support. Abandoned :/
  • (2016-08-24) Michael Costa: Love this app. Makes Gmail beautiful & simple. Saved me from longing for another email app. Thank you!
  • (2016-07-26) Ivo Havener: The gmail module has many options and is easy to use.
  • (2016-05-27) Tomasz Sliwinski: Fajny pomysł: prosty ale bardzo praktyczny. In my opinion, this is quite nice idea.
  • (2016-05-19) Trisha Borrini: War mal richtig klasse! Mittlerweile läuft die App nicht mehr, non-stop Loop... Es können somit auch keine Anpassungen gemacht werden, wirklich schade... Edit: Nach De/Reaktivierung funktioniert wieder alles wie gewohnt... Schön, wäre wirklich ein Verlust gewesen...
  • (2016-04-11) Soda Carbon: {"version":"0.6.8","preferences":{"isEnabled":"true","isDebugging":"false"},"modules":[{"name":"Remove YouTube Header Bar","author":"Sidney","includes":"*youtube.com/watch*","version":"1.0.0","isEnabled":true,"options":[{"description":"Remove Youtbue header","isEnabled":true,"tab":"General","section":"General","type":"checkbox","fields":[],"head":{"css":["#yt-masthead-container {"," display:none;","}"]},"load":{}}],"index":1}]}
  • (2016-03-08) Adrian Hoban: Edit #2: Support link goes to dead domain. Dev is dead. Do not use this extension. Edit: Dev, would you please either update this extension or withdraw it from the Chrome App Store? Original: Totally love this extension. Gets rid of unsightly, redundant clutter, and allows me to depend on keyboard shortcuts should I need to access hidden elements. Am wondering and hoping that the dev will make some time for the Calendar module before too long... Thanks for this.
  • (2015-12-28) Peg Conroy: This did what I wanted: removed the ads in the far right column. I tried a couple of others made specifically to remove ads in Gmail and they did not! This one is perfect.
  • (2015-12-24) loved it way back when too! xoxoxoxox
  • (2015-11-20) Henry Stanley: Love it.
  • (2015-06-04) Kimberly Wimmer: Cannot figure out how to set this up ANYWHERE on the Web - only very basic instructions and I am sick of reading the rave reviews and not being able to figure it out myself. It's really not cool there is not even a link on this Page to the REAL Website for this company who developed the extension. The link leads to a random page and does NOT work. Thanks, Kim
  • (2015-05-13) Max Yakin Bozek: While it does what it says, it also embeds ads into pages, creating hover-over links on words, opening new tabs that are spam, and generally being a nuisance.
  • (2015-05-07) Rafael Lain: Incredible!!
  • (2015-03-23) very good
  • (2015-03-03) Joachim Møller: Only using for Gmail as I know nothing about CSS or JS or looked into where to find modules for other stuff (yet), if such exist somewhere, but for Gmail it's a pretty awesome extension, even if it doesn't hide every single ad.
  • (2015-02-16) Einen H: I love it!

    I'm trying to move a custom configuration from one computer to another. I get a success message when I click "Upload Data" on the source computer, but the destination computer says "No Data Found". Also, I exporting data from the source computer appears to work as expected, but when I try to import the command text into the destination computer I get a "success" message but the new site does not appear in the configuration menu. Thanks, Nathan
  • (2017-08-04, v:0.7.0) Zuheyr Tahir: Requests to the server have been blocked by an extension
    Additional issue it seems is that add blocking extensions might be blocking this extension too.
  • (2017-08-04, v:0.7.0) Zuheyr Tahir: Your file was not found
    When I try to open minilist dashboard this error comes with the url chrome-extension://bmihblnpomgpjkfddepdpdafhhepdbek/html/options.html Your file was not found It may have been moved or deleted. ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND
  • (2017-06-22, v:0.7.0) Marie Drew: Gmail unread color
    My mother is partially blind and about 2 weeks ago your extension started acting up. We have it set so the unread messages are set to green. Randomly it either unchecks that feature or changes the color. I have checked her computer for virus's etc but all is ok. I have even signed into her chrome account on my computer and it does it here as well. Can you help?
  • (2017-06-07, v:0.7.0) John Carver: Err file not found
    Where do I change the dashboard url to /options/index.html to make minimalist execute?
  • (2017-06-01, v:0.7.0) Footer options
    Hi.. love your extension. I use Google Labs Preview Pane. When Preview Pane is active (vertical or horizontal), the Footers are not suppressed, even with all check boxes checked. They are suppressed using normal Gmail view. I'm pretty dependent on Preview Pane, but I would like to suppress the Footer markers for Storage, Legal and Account Activity. Is that possible to add or some way I can modify my module to do that? Thanks for any help or advise.
  • (2017-04-18, v:0.7.0) Jerry Gassie: Dashboard URL
    0.7.0 'File Not Found' Workaround: Manually change the dashboard url from "/html/options.html" to "/options/index.html" the dashboard will work. I posted the issue on github.
  • (2017-04-17, v:0.7.0) Sune Amstrup: Can't access any extension pages
    When clicking dashboard or any other links that lead to dashboard/the minimalist extension throws the error: Your file was not found It may have been moved or deleted. ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND Basically the app is now useless for me. :( MacBook Pro 15" running macOS Sierra Chrome: Version 57.0.2987.133 (Official Build) (64-bit)
