  • (2019-12-03) Stewart Agland: A five star rating from me. it is very annoying when a new window opens - the option should be part of settings

  • (2019-10-07) Judy Waybright: When I first found this I was ecstatic ...why in the world Chrome has to control every aspect of what you do and force you to have all these separate open windows...is beyond me!!! Now though...IT DOES NOT WORK more than it does. I have to reactivate it all the time (when I can remember how I did it the last time) and then even sometimes it doesn't work. So now I have an extension that will SOMETIMES work or I have Chrome controlling me with separate windows. I don't know about anyone else but when I have to deal with those extra windows in Chrome there is no functionability (we're good long as we are just reading and do not have to go back or maneuver in any way. If anyone out there reading this knows how to get this extension to stay activated please let me know... So I have to give it only 2 stars since more than half the time it does not work for me...but if it did work all the time it would get 5 for sure...

  • (2018-09-23, v:2.1) Susan Janeczek: need help with tool
    How do you set this tool up so that when I click on a link in one system, it shows up in the same tab each time? Currently, every time I click on a linkedin URL in a record, it keeps opening a new tab. I thought this tool could be set up so that that linkedin URLs all open in the same tab? Is this possible? Can you help?
