  • (2018-10-03) Jose Velazquez: It's a shame that such a beautiful extension received no support. It's extremely important abandonware doesn't continue being rewarded, especially when a key feature, local weather, is broken. For that reason, I'm giving it a single star.
  • (2018-01-26) Ryan Scodari: really great should be built in! loses a star though cause the weather doesn't work
  • (2015-05-01) Hise Chapman: Looks awesome; but.... disapprove of security settings... there's no reason the extension should be checking gathering users geolocation. I would prefer to have an action to display bookmarks instead of all apps. The user could organize their bookmarks in a "Backdrop" folder and all those bookmarks get displayed.
  • (2015-03-13) Filipe Pacheco Paulo: looks great but... does not show bookmarks like the original chrome blank tab that I miss a lot, could have the additional links to google services (search, image search, email, calendar and so on...)

  • (2014-09-09) Abigail Turnbull: A beautiful changing wallpaper and clock to keep me on track yet relaxed during long hours at work.
  • (2014-08-26) Oumarou Dia: Breathtaking!
  • (2014-04-29) Stefanus Hosea: Recommended new tab replacement in best design! (:

    temperature always says 0 degrees. can you help?
  • (2017-05-24, v:1.0.1) Marius Filo: Options disabled ?
    Hi ! Nice work ! In the Backdrop medu displayed after clicking the Backdrop icon in Chrome's toolbar, the "Options" item is deactivated (dimmed). Is there a way to edit the options ? (I don't see weather, for instance)
  • (2016-08-29, v:1.0.1) Michael Cannon: Openweather Invalid API key
    Weather is displaying as 0 degrees. Further exploration shows an invalid API key. Any way to let the user use their own API key? Or edit their location manually? Thanks.
  • (2015-03-13, v:1.0.1) Filipe Pacheco Paulo: Show Bookmarks
    I usually have my Bookmark bar hidden in Chrome and use it only in the "new tab" page. Unfortunately this is not possible when the backdrop extension is active :P
