Image from store SiteLauncher
Description from store SiteLauncher is a Chrome "speed dial" extension that gives you a super-fast, beautiful, organized and more stylish way to access your favorite sites. Speed dial to your favorite sites without the need to load a new tab first. Just click the red toolbar icon — or press the keyboard hotkey, Ctrl+M by default — for single tap access to your predefined list of favorite websites. You can open sites from the "Launcher" speed-dial panel by custom single key shortcuts, arrow keys & [enter] navigation or by mouse/touch click. Keyboard Examples: open Facebook by pressing Ctrl + M + F or open Google by Ctrl + M + G. The default hotkey can also be changed from Ctrl + M to something else (pro-tip: many prefer to set it to Ctrl + Space). And of course you can setup similar shortcuts to any URLs/sites you wish, as well as delete and edit the built-in defaults. SiteLauncher is free to use and doesn't contain any spyware (and we promise to never add any). Feature Highlights: * The Launcher gives you a quick and beautiful way access to your favorite sites * Pick a background theme (from over 120 included) that suits your style or use your own custom image as a background. * The Shortcut Manager makes it easy to add, edit and remove shortcuts. Each shortcut can point to any URL/site you wish. * Option to set a custom keyboard letter to each site gives you super-fast keyboard tap navigation from the Launcher * Cloud ready. Shortcuts are stored as special bookmarks and are therefore automatically kept in sync across multiple computers if you use a Google Chrome account. * Group related shortcuts together for quick visual scanning of the Launcher. * Security and privacy—the SiteLauncher extension does not monitor, collect or transit any personal data about you, ever. We intend to keep it that way. ---------- SiteLauncher is made by DoneSmart Ltd - makers of the popular SiteLauncher add-on for Firefox.

  • (2020-02-12) Raj Persaud: SAVED ME SO MUCH FRUSTRATION! Perhaps my biggest pet-peeve about Chrome (apart from its disastrous, memory-hogging) is how un-intuitive its basic navigation panes are. I utilize a number of sites throughout the day: Salesforce, Gmail, User reports, GCal, Google Sheets, Scheduling tools, etc. I long ago bookmarked each of them but having to type them in each time interrupts my workflow and often times it ends up fragmenting my thought-process and momentum. This is a brilliant yet simple product and, best of all, works exactly as it's pitched itself. Having spent hours over the past few weeks cleaning up Chrome and hunting for productivity-optimizing tools, I can tell you that winning this rating from me is no light matter.

  • (2017-04-29) Dongwhee Ko: 즐겨찾는 사이트 단축키 설정시 컨트롤 또는 알트 + 숫자로도 가능했으면 좋겠네요
  • (2017-01-31) Marek Příhoda: Overall, really useful exension, thanks for your great work. Just one thing worth mentioning though: The dialog takes a long time to appear, much longer than I would expect it to. I would expect it to spring into existence so that I can start using it right away, at least that's how it behaves in Firefox and it's much much much better user experience
  • (2017-01-06) Yasuhiro Osaki: I have used this handy plugin for 3 years. But I am worried to never change Hotkey into "Ctrl-Space" when update version 2.0.1(29/Apr) on Chrome. Of course I read "Hotkey instructions here" and could change from Ctrl-M into any other keys. But I couldn't change Ctrl-Space (it is familiar short cut for us) on Chrome v26 stable version. Please fix this problem. Thanks.
  • (2016-10-10) Дмитрий Шашуров: Good addon. Where I should change hotkey (from default Ctrl+M to another) by instruction there http://prntscr.com/cs6uht ?
  • (2016-09-23) Warmuser: WONDERFUL extension, anyway I want to suggest three tips: 1) Please, add the function to scrolling with the mouse wheel when the popup is opened. 2) Please, add the function to lock the Groups to prevent any casual mistake deletion. 3) Please, allow us to enable/disable the "CTRL+D" function. Because sometimes when I add some bookmarked pages (not sites) to the Favourite Bar it confuses me.. I prefer to add the links manually. 4) Please, add a function to let us to save also extensions urls or desktop urls, like file:///C:/Download/Browsers/Chrome/textexample.txt & "chrome-extension://extensioncodesample". Great job!! ;)
  • (2016-08-23) Лев: Как я долго это искал!
  • (2016-06-21) Robert Smithwright: Provides the basic functionality I'm looking for which is surprisingly difficult to find for Chrome. Options are very limited. I would prefer controlling the order in which my favorites are displayed instead of it being alphabetical with no way to change it. I would also prefer a List view instead of the grid view.
  • (2016-05-12) Iskandar Muchammad: BEST
  • (2016-04-13) Jepte Vidal: excelente aplicacion para reemplazar el marcador común de chrome, aunque seria perfecta si permitiera bloquear carpetas.
  • (2016-01-13) chad tunis: Great Extension - what a time saver!
  • (2015-05-09) Hoshi Nova: Love it. I had to play around with it a little to make it work how I want though. By default, Sitelauncher can't differentiate between uppercase and lowercase shortcuts but it can be modified so that it can. In the launcher.js file, I changed: document.addEventListener('keydown', processKeyPress, false); to: document.addEventListener('keypress', processKeyPress, false); and I changed if(items[i][SL_ATTR_KEY].toUpperCase().charCodeAt(0) == KeyID) to if(items[i][SL_ATTR_KEY].charCodeAt(0) == KeyID) Also, I use Autohotkey to change Ctrl+Space to Ctrl+M so I can launch it with Ctrl+Space.

  • (2014-10-18) Chaz Peloquin: what. the add-on get "Ad by AllCheapPrice" Malware
  • (2013-11-06) Todd Levi Brown: Excellent Support and a very good product that has more depth and customization than most. Thanks - keep up the good work!
  • (2013-06-22) Nico Troia: The extensions hotkey rarely stays active... I am constantly having to re-apply my hotkey. I'm not sure if it's a chrome problem or an app problem but it's annoying.

  • (2020-01-26, v:5.0.9) Andrew Simpson: Brave browser support
    Hello, I recently switched to Brave. Although the extension installs correctly, the import function doesn't work and even manually entering the URLs doesn't work. Can you support Brave? I love your extension and it would be wonderful to have it on this new, growing Browser.

  • (2019-02-17, v:5.0.9) kc Mueller: Email shortcut (1) does not work anymore
    Hi, The email shortcut (1) does not work anymore - if I use it in the dev console it does. ( javascript:/*http://mail.google.com/mail/*/(function(){var w=window,d=document,gS='getSelection';var s=(''+(w[gS]?w[gS]():d[gS]?d[gS]():d.selection.createRange().text)).replace(/(^s+|s+$)/g,'');m='http://mail.google.com/mail/?view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&to=&su='+encodeURIComponent(document.title)+'&body='+encodeURIComponent(document.location+' '+s);w=window.open(m,'addwindow','status=no,toolbar=no,width=575,height=545,resizable=yes');setTimeout(function(){w.focus();}, 250);})(); ) Any idea what that could be (I disabled many add blocking extensions - not sure how to figure out if one of those does block) or how to identify the issue? THanks for an awesome extensions, kc
  • (2018-11-15, v:5.0.9) Bill Nesting: Change hotkey from ctrl-M to other, including ctrl-SPACE
    With a bit of searching, I found it. Choose the MORE triple vertical dots on Chrome, MORE TOOLS --> EXTENSIONS. They've move the keyboard shortcuts to another spot... simply click the three horizontal lines in the top left of the window by the word EXTENSIONS, select KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS and Bob's your uncle. I've been using this app for years, glad it still works. Rock on! Cheers, Bill

  • (2018-05-12, v:5.0.9) Sarra Lev: keyboard shortcut doesn't work - can't find instructions for alternative
    I'm in Opera, and it's working fine, except the keyboard shortcut Ctrl M to get in. Opera has its own use for this shortcut, which I changed. Even so, it doesn't work. Also, I can't find the instructions that you link to to change the shortcut.
