  • (2021-05-14) Mel Schmidt: This is perfect! Very well designed.
  • (2021-05-11) Sergii Sergieiev: Very nice extension, the only problem for me is it cannot open bookmarks with system links, like chrome://chrome-urls/, chrome://extensions/shortcuts. Other then that it is a really nice app.
  • (2021-05-05) Kousha Ahmadbarooni: Excellent
  • (2021-04-09) Lilith Jimenez: COOL
  • (2021-04-07) Ulaş Günel: it's splendid. five star
  • (2021-03-23) Deirdre O'Loughlin: Love this App!! I use it for work and it's a life saver.
  • (2021-03-19) Luis Peña: En comparación con otras herramientas que probé buscando darle un toque de personalización y organización a mi inicio de chrome principalmente con los marcadores me parece que esta es la mejor de todas, hasta ahora no he encontrado una que ofrezca una personalización tan limpia y agradable. Sin embargo en el tema de los marcadores en la pantalla principal en mi opinión personal lo ideal seria que el usuario tuviera la libertad de personalizar el icono del marcador o que en vez de mostrar una burbuja con el icono minimizado en un costado aparezca el icono completo en la burbuja, facilitaría el poder encontrar el marcador que estoy buscando ya que en mi caso tengo una gran cantidad de ellos y los iconos minimizados no me ayudan mucho a encontrar el que necesito en ese momento. Pero en todo lo demás me parece excelente.
  • (2021-02-26) Erkin Kulyyew: супер
  • (2021-02-25) Vinícius: Se tivessem mais formas de customizar a página inicial como fonte, tamanho, etc. Eu usaria essa extensão.
  • (2021-02-24) Tarun Srinivas: Very easy to use. Organization features are great
  • (2021-02-22) Aaron Sakhai: Still not better than the long-dead Papaly. Papaly has it's problems, and is a little buggy, but when you have it setup the way you need, it runs fine enough. Still, I want an app with a few extra features. Aurora's weather and rotating images are a nice touch, but it all lands short in a few ways. Reasons: -No login, so you can't recreate your setup on another machine -No customizable icons -No shared boards -No ability to disable parts of the main navigation users don't need. A link to my calendar and tasks? No thanks, can we put that out of view with an option to the user?
  • (2021-02-11) Brian Ray - HCPF: I think this is a great replacement for Papaly after it's quiet demise. It's a really slick looking speed dial and I like it a lot. I think managing the bookmarks can feel kind of clunky at first and takes a bit to get used to but other than that I absolutely love it.
  • (2021-02-10) umut arpat: Live Saver.
  • (2021-02-07) Keizel Lorein Bonifacio: I hope there could be a way to add a minimalist Google Calendar widget. Kindly add this so we won't have to click the calender tab to view upcoming and current events. Nevertheless, this is an excellent extension. The best one among the rest.
  • (2021-01-31) aeon pixels: Overall it's wonderful I love it and by far the best tab extension I t've ever tried. But why just 4 stars you may wonder? Well I cannot copy and paste already exisiting bookmarks in "Folders" from my Chrome "Bookmark Bar" which I do have. So, I would need to recreate those bookmarks or copy the links one by one. If I have a ton of them structured in folders and yes I use them almost (90%) all, it would be time intense. Therefore I still don't use the bookmark feature by Auorara. You can copy the links individually and drop them but you cannot copy the folder with all links included and drop them in "other bookmarks". This is a basic feature and badly needed as indeed it would be a massive time-saver. Secondly, I wish those folders would be able to expand their content or collapse. Because I wish I could collapse those I don't need currently but expand those folders which I need at the moment. Very useful if I want to maintain a clean look on my screen ;). I think those two features are essential and needed. Nice to have would be also a drag and drop feature for the bookmarks folders if possible. I use Aurora since a while and recommend it to everyone I know ;) simply because of it's simplicity and beauty even with some missing features I wish it would have. So here are the features in short I wish it would have: - Must-Feature: Copy and Paste from exisiting "Folders" - Must-Feature: Expand and Collapse Folders - Nice to have: Drag & Drop feature for folders If it would have such features I would upgrade it to 5 stars ;). So I'm watching in hope it will be added, some time. Again, overall it's the best choice you can make. Add this extension and you will have every day another beautiful image with very useful tools and you will have a stunning easy to use designed UI. Get rid of Google search engine start screen and add this extension you will be pleasantly surprised.
  • (2021-01-25) Caio Frasson: Awesomely Awesome! It does everything I need and want, in a very easy and clean way, not leaving anything out!
  • (2021-01-19) Shane Hou: It's good to associate with bookmarks., but it's a bit slow when opening and loading them. And it'll be good if I can change wallpapers on my own, and edit third party notes and todo lists on the New Page.
  • (2021-01-05) Dereck Vis: Great "New Tab" extension, a great alternative to Momentum, another great new tab extension. I think it slightly edges it out in terms of design, layout and feature set, but it is let down by that giant logo in the top left hand corner. If it wasn't there, I would have no problem calling this the best New Tab extension
  • (2021-01-05) Antonimello: This app is super good. I start yousing it and I am verry proud. You can make see your calendar in the app, add notes, you can add To-Do and more other. You can youse it as Google Chrome. I love this app and I am going with 5 stars. I recomand it!
  • (2021-01-01) King Yoyo: ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
  • (2020-12-06) Sue Brettell: I'm just getting used to Aurora but I love it. Unsplash photos are great but I prefer the original Aurora background photo and it would have been nice to be able to make that choice. However there's an easy fix. If anyone else is interested, the photo is by John Mercado, free for personal use: https://cutewallpaper.org/download.php?file=/21/aurora-wallpaper-4k/HD-wallpaper-Bannalpsee-4K-Nightfall-Lake-Aurora-sky-.jpg
  • (2020-12-02) Amy Z. Cleary: I really really love all the concepts here. I love the weather and the minimalist and customizable dashboard page. I love the links to apps. I love the history and bookmarks. The notes feature is really awesome. BUT: it drives me insane that task managers and the calendar open in a separate window instead of a pop up. Other New Tab pages allow for this, for example Momentum Plus. Really should be a way to do task list pop up or screen. If you cant get our personal calendar then, at bare minimum there should be a pop-up of a blank one so you can reference it when needed. I do all the time. A calculator would be really cool too. Otherwise, awesome extension.
  • (2020-12-01) Ivan Cacija: Jako dobro
  • (2020-11-20) Zaseeya Kamal: Better than Momentum ;)
  • (2020-10-03) Dobrin Marinov: Cool, and it works. I like it a lot
  • (2020-10-02) Slava Tsvetnikov: best app
  • (2020-09-24) IzzyJude: It was ok but the only thing I did not like is that we are not able to change bookmark logos
  • (2020-09-22) Xash Gaming DE: Really almost perfect but a few small things are missing to get there: - choice of search engine - being able to open all bookmarks of a folder at the same time - calendar/To-do ( google ) integrated and not a popup - calendar/To-do moveable like the note is But really, overall this is by far the best one i could find and offers such a great set of features - really well done. Now just a little bit tweaking and you´re perfect! <3
  • (2020-09-18) Falsches Post: I truly enjoy the plugin. Using it has provided an excellent and 'eye-appealing way to present & use my bookmarks. One small bug to report (when I set wind speed to mph... I still get kph.) :( No big deal.
  • (2020-09-09) Carlos Quillupangui: Chevere una pantalla de incio amigable y sencilla!
  • (2020-09-08) Cami Lescano: increíble y muy útil, justo lo que necesitaba!!!
  • (2020-09-06) Dave Locke: Simple to use, fast and just the right amount of features. Makes it quick and simple to open your favourite locations or any bookmark and app. The daily background images are stunning.
  • (2020-08-30) Chirag Varma: A beautiful offline extension which helps in sorting out the bookmarks into different categories and displays them in a new tab page.
  • (2020-08-29) Amit Bongir: I really like its Dashboard, with its "Note" feature - the ability to drag notes to any position on the Dashboard. I use this to keep on focus short term goals/tasks that I get reminded about every time I open the new tab. The Google search bar on the Dashboard is one awesome feature too.

  • (2020-04-11) Zafer Üstüner: Doesnt work on Brave browser. It doesnt recognize the other bookmarks folder.
  • (2020-03-26) Eleven- SL: 对比了其它 bookmark 扩展,这是目前基本功能最全、效率最高的一个。 关键点在于和谷歌浏览器账户同步数据
  • (2020-03-18) HyeongGu Jeong: 예쁘고 편하네요
  • (2020-03-07) Jody Mitoma: Simply beautiful, easy to use, and very helpful with organizing to-do list, bookmarks, and love everything about it so far. I just wish we could edit the bookmarks in the extension itself for quick deleting rather than having to find the bookmarks in the Chrome bookmark manager. 5 stars! :)

    Hi, I like your product. I had to replace my hard disks and reinstall Windows 10 on my notebook as well as the Chrome browser with Aurora extension. At first the bookmarks in Aurora did not appear, then somehow they did appear but they were old bookmarks, not the complete set I had prior to reinstalling Windows. I imported my Chrome bookmarks successfully but only after deleting the old ones which again, I'm not sure where they came from. The complete set of Aurora bookmarks did not appear when I imported the Chrome bookmarks. All this has me baffled. Can you please tell me how to recover my complete list of bookmarks in Aurora? Thank you.

    Good idea but no way to search or filter bookmarks, without that I probably won't continue to use it. It has browser history which is good but having closed tab history and tab restoration (with navigation history) would be more useful. I use a Toodledo Android app/web page (https://www.toodledo.com/) for to do as its more powerful, that isn't supported.
