  • (2020-06-24) kitty gaur: very good extension
  • (2020-02-23) James Fancy: Works quickly but my main complaint is that in the list of url's it is not clear where one ends & another ends since it is not a bulleted or spaced out list, I suggest "The Great Suspender" over this which is more in depth but takes a little longer to navigate as a result.
  • (2020-02-13) Maarten Van Casteren: Create multiple lists of urls! Great extensions.

  • (2018-07-28) Boris Dziundziuk: great
  • (2017-11-18) Mikey MoMo: A little difficult to use but it does work after many clicks. It saves multiple URL sets which is a good thing. Missing features: 1. Close all open tabs before opening list; 2. Delay a few seconds (user specified) before opening the next URL (can be global). Immediately opening multiple tabs can put quite a load on a system. A delay between opening tabs helps speed the opening because they are not all trying for disk access and CPU access at the same time. First one of these bulk openers I tried that actually saves the list. Useless without that feature.

  • (2020-08-15, v:1.9.0) Jon Howard: Open a list <based on the current url>
    It would be great if you could open a list of urls based on the current url. I regularly need to do this as a developer. Maybe it's a narrow use case. Basically, allow the user to build a list like: %current url%/api %current url%/api/token https://www.google.com ^ but not force it on all of them
  • (2020-04-18, v:1.8.2) --: Good day!
    Could you add a button "rewrite list" opposite the drop-down list menu. When clicking on it the chosen list will be rewritten with list of currently opened tabs or with list which is currently displaying in extension's area. What is easier for you to do. Sorri for my English. Thank you for job! Good-bye!
  • (2019-12-03, v:1.6.0) Μαρίνος Βενιτουράκης: Export Settings
    Amazing addon How can i export/backup lists & settings... and import in other pc ?
  • (2019-11-22, v:1.5.1) Daniel Avneri: Not working after update
    No tabs load up after launching URLS
  • (2019-11-22, v:1.5.1) Anson Wong: Not working in latest Chrome?
    As subject, seems no new tabs can be created now, please help check it. Thanks.
  • (2019-10-06, v:1.3.3) Tony Roger: converted urls order(disorder), which is quite annoying
    Hi Team, scenario: 1. input 3 urls https://google.com https://apple.com https://facebook.com click "Open List", then these 3 urls opened in the windows, while then click "Get list of currently open tabs"(or just click the extension icon), the order displayed is as beneath: https://www.facebook.com/ https://www.apple.com/ https://www.google.com/ do you notice the issue here? the order is contrary from what i inputted, it's quite annoying when connecting with other applications, because the order is just different from what inputted. the expectation here is: the outputted order is exactly the same as inputted. thanks for your understanding and optimisation.
  • (2018-12-04, v:1.3.2) Emanuel Celano: Fantastic extension but a little problem ...
    Hi, there is a problem with the list save function. after nine list save, the dozen is not saved. It is as if there is a limit to the number of lists that is can be created. Thanks for the fix if you have time ...
  • (2018-12-01, v:1.3.2) Or Schiro: Add current tab via context menu
    Hi there, How about a feature to add the current tab to the list using the context menu of the browser? Yours
  • (2018-07-09, v:1.1.4) Kevin H: Default List To Open
    Would like the option to set a default list as the one you would like the extension popup page to automatically load rather than the current tab urls. Great extension otherwise :)
  • (2018-05-08, v:1.1.4) Jie Zeng: Not working in incognito mode
    Hello, When using the extension with Chrome in incognito mode, the URLs open in a new normal window. I would have expected them to open in the same window. Using Google Chrome 66 under macOS.
  • (2017-11-29, v:1.1.1) Tom Armstrong: Not working
    Enter a list of 30 Urls, click 'Open List'. Then.... nothing. Perhaps because I'm working in Vivaldi (Chromium) browser?
