  • (2016-02-05) 哈乘8: I like this version of Petapator very much. It is useful to view images of patents in USPTO databased, and I can easily see Abstract and bibliography information of US patent applications. I am patent examiner in one of patent offices busily involved with PCT applications. The petapator helps me achieve highly efficient patent search results required in patent examination works.
  • (2016-01-18) Merrick Maxfield: Amazing. Saves countless hours and missed searches.
  • (2016-01-14) leisure liu: good
  • (2016-01-07) 劉豪: This plugin is a must for IP personnel. btw, a quick turn on/off button is preferred, since sometime we need only a simple, quick, patent search which do not require so much details (Petapator may increase the loading time). Furthermore, the "Patent Bell" function is great for snow ball prior art search, but that's almost all just this, its application is a little bit limited, as a In House IP personnel, instead of knowing the cited reference of a pre-determined patent, im more interested in who/when the determined patent have been cited as reference for potential infringer search. Last but not least, Its not perfect "YET" but its very close to it. thank you for providing such a great tool for us.

  • (2021-06-28, v:10.3.0) Vishal Kumar: Petapator extension not working fine from quite some time
    Hi Team, I am using the Petapator since 2013. But recently i observed that either the images or text does not open in the Petapator. Due to this issue, i stopped using it. But it affects my efficienty. Can you do something on this issue?
  • (2017-05-16, v:10.0.3) Christian C.: getting the .csv export to work
    Hi, I love the Petapator. I tried to get the CSV export function to work. It does not work when I select the the patents and only displays the first 5 when I export directly.
  • (2016-10-31, v:8.5.1) Cheng Jerry: Can't login
    Nothing happened after clicking the "login" button.
  • (2016-01-15, v:8.0.1) Jack Rosa: ver 8.0 release announcement
    I installed the extension and am trying to use it with the USPTO website. Ran a Quick Search and my results page keeps showing the "Petapator 8.0 is released." message and wont let me see my results (supposed to be 45 hits)
  • (2015-06-09, v:7.2.0) Alex O: Figures not showing up
    Today, the figures stopped displaying on the right side. I uninstalled and reinstalled Petapator, but that didn't fix the issue. First time I've seen this and I've been using Petapator for years. Anyone else experiencing this?
  • (2015-01-06, v:7.1.0) Elton Leung: how do I choose what to show by default?
    the extension is very nice but when I check figure and detail under show, the page just won't finish loading. Is there any way that we can uncheck that two options without loading the page.
  • (2014-10-23, v:7.0.2) Matthieu Hausig: Blank pages and missing fields
    Looking at single patents is returning blank pages. Also, email summaries are missing most fields. Everything was working fine a couple days ago, its just since yesterday that there have been problems.
  • (2014-06-23, v:7.0.2) Lin Eric: erenced-by bar chart unable use
    Referenced-by bar chart unable use. Do you have same question.
  • (2014-06-04, v:7.0.1) Todd Pleiness: highlighting
    The text color in the highlighting box/tool window is white and the same color as the box, so you are unable to see what you entered into the field.
  • (2013-04-18, v: Permissions
    Really like what you've done. As an inventor your extension may be very helpful, but the permissions seem very broad. I can handle sharing TAB use, but ALL my DATA on ALL websites? Would this mean if I fill out a form with my social security number and other personal data that you could have access to that data? Thank you in advance for your time. Geary
  • (2013-02-05, v:5.5.4) Christopher Gray: Please limit required access to data...
    Please limit the required access to data. I do not believe it requires access to "all websites" and poses possible security risks for users.
