  • (2021-03-05) Pradeep Kushwaha: Not working now! Black screen
  • (2020-04-15) Don McColl: Great at first then started showing adverts dressed as news then proceeded to just full blown adverts for discovery, not even an article - just a link to their page. No thanks. Trusted you, now don't. goodbye.
  • (2019-05-31) Utsav Rastogi: This extension will make you dive into a sea of information with a single click after you open a new tab. You get to know things you've never heard about, see what you've never seen and learn what is difficult to find anywhere else.
  • (2019-04-21) רקפת כהן: Wow! Sometimes I just open up new tabs just to view another cool fact. Love you guys! <3 :)
  • (2019-03-31) Ravi Khatri: After installing this plugin I forgot the logo of google. Absolutely fantastic and amazing way to learn if you do not watch discovery or national geography
  • (2018-07-15) Domen Kastner: Very informative but sometimes I accidentally close the tab and then I don't find this article (Takes time to find it). Could you add some little carousel at the bottom so we can slide to older posts, please? thanks
  • (2018-07-12) Paulo Pinheiro Francisco: Pessoalmente preferia que a extensão disponibilizasse também a pesquisa do Google
  • (2018-05-23) Thanh Nguyen: It's great to have something new to learn each time I open a new tab. However, I prefer having a small text of Curious in default Chrome tab, as I can also access my frequent site faster.
  • (2018-04-27) Vinayaka HK: i dont rate an extension at all, this is my first one, I GOTTA SAY! I LOVE IT
  • (2018-01-03) Henko Holtzhausen: Enabling this extension was probably the worst decision of my life. Naturally it's extremely interesting. And it's quite funny that it's listed under productivity.
  • (2017-12-15) Agathiyan Rajendran: Really I forget sometimes why i opened a new tab... Great source of knowledge
  • (2017-12-11) Călin Comloșan: One of the best extensions ever!
  • (2017-10-30) Md. Makid Hasan: Awesome one. Loved it.
  • (2017-08-04) Rodrigo Cornejo: Wonderfull!
  • (2017-07-31) Wanjohi Muriuki: makes me forget why i opened the new tab in the first place, since each new fact is so interesting. now i got its android app and this also it seems i just can't get enough of curiostiy
  • (2017-07-05) Palak Darji: content is not being updated... why?
  • (2017-07-04) Karl Friedrich: Absolutely awesome extension!!! Recently though it hasn't worked and it's been stuck on the same fact so I uninstalled and reinstalled and now it's not working at all!
  • (2017-06-27) Nandkishor Sonawane: Good extension.
  • (2017-04-12) Ariel Kemp: The best extension.
  • (2017-02-23) lifesonsrv: Below me here, Ashish summed up this extension (as well as the app and website) perfectly. Captivatingly amazing stuff. Rarely am I compelled to review an extension, this is just too good.
  • (2016-12-23) Eneov: You'll learn things, so many things.
  • (2016-11-10) Ashish Singh: Learn on the go ... Truly Amazing ... PS: Don't forget WHY you've opened a NEW TAB
  • (2016-08-15) Angelene Warnock: This is my favorite extension. EVER.
  • (2016-04-22) Gautam Hira: Curiosity, suits the name.
  • (2016-04-05) Rose Stephens: awesome facts
  • (2016-03-18) Iva Macháčková: A great feature if you are curious and love learning new stuff about various topics. Opening new tabs in Chrome was never that interesting before. As already mentioned, the only issue is that you often forget why you opened the window in the first place :-)
  • (2015-11-24) Clare O'Dower: Love love this new feature when i open a new tab. Only issue is that I many times get side tracked into their facts and forget what I was actually doing and why I even opened the tab in the first place. But then again, I'm a factoid smarter, so I guess who cares.

    Hi! It seems like I'm having the same issue as other users. Last week it kept showing the same image, so I uninstalled and reinstalled several times, and now it doesn't work at all. Please fix Curiosity, it was one of my favorite extensions. :(
  • (2020-04-17, v:1.0.9) birench: Not working from a week.
    for two days it was showing same image/info on every new tab, I tried reinstalling from chrome web store, now its just black screen with no image/info. its been a week now. Fix it, I really don't want to use any other smart tab extension. I liked it very much.
  • (2020-04-15, v:1.0.9) Jenny Smith: What happened?
    Really sucks that Curiosity is now a part of Discovery. I really like this extension a lot and now it seems like it is no more. Would have been nice to know this happened and or even a warning. My tab seems to open to the same thing every with every new tab and clicking on it takes me to Discovery.com.
