- (2021-03-06) CC Lee: It would be nice if it can bookmark
- (2020-08-19) 王祥: Recent tab is default sort is very very awesome!!!
- (2020-06-28) Kartik Watwani: Great extension. Increases productivity when working on tasks which require many tabs to be opened.
- (2020-04-11) John Weiss: Would be much better if fonts were smaller. TOO BIG. I need to see more search results at glance. I have a small screen.
- (2020-02-04) Heck Fy: Good extension, I use it for a couple of years. But there are some moments where it is not ideal. First, for some reason I literally freezes if I try search over history. Second, there are 5 configurable shortcuts for the extension, but they all do the same thing! Is it by design? If it is then in my opinion much better would be if every shortcut opens a specific tab of the extension. I find that I use the extension for bookmarks more often than for open tabs. So I changed default tab in options to Bookmarks, but then it became apparent to me I used Tabs mode too..)
- (2019-11-09) Anton Kerezov: Hey very nice extension. Can I suggest one fundamental feature which might make your Saka the best fullscreen extention. Because google locked the search bar we cannot search for new pages. Can it be possible to start in a mode for searching google and if we want we can select from the list of tabs that are open as well? Also more customization of fonts and spacing as well as the button on the bottom would be very cool. Keep up the good work.
- (2019-09-22) Jean Bruckner: great! supreme! first class! all we need! I missed it so long time, now, I am calmed down! so thankxsxsxxs!
- (2019-08-21) Prashant kulkarni: so many tab for opening closed tab , recently open tab, history, bookmarks,all opened tab...excellent extension
- (2019-07-14) Tarek Elsayed: It would be so nice to let this extension close tabs with the same ease it allows to switch tabs.
- (2019-05-29) baby bat: нет этой опции с middle mouse button, Ctrl + left mouse button -- нельзя не вырубив окно открыть несколько пунктов в нем сразу; И автор принимает критику и предложения только в своём огороженном гит хаб курятнике. Мнение здешних крестьян его не интересуют. Ок. (может не совсем справедливо, но поставлю единицу)
- (2019-05-02) Santosh Kumar: I love this extension. If the tab list of this extension can display the tabs in tree format like the firefox extension "Tree Style Tab", it will be AWESOME!!. I an looking for an alternative for "Tree Style Tab" extension in chrome and this extension is the closet I could find in Chrome.
- (2019-01-29) Mark Piper: The best tab search I've found. Love the global shortcut feature.
- (2018-11-10) Klas Mellbourn: This is one of these extensions that I didn't know I needed, but now I can't live without it.
- (2018-09-28) Igor Rizhyi: very good application with good performance. exactly what i looking for. the only one thing i wish to be changed is that there is no sense to show current active tab in search results. example: if i have 2 opened wikipedia tabs and im currently on it and i remember that i have another wiki article i want to switch, then i just toggle extension, write 'wik', click enter and im on it (my current tab is not listed in search results)
- (2018-08-06) Ankit Mundada: Loved it! Especially the 'Modes' feature, which is cool. Also easy short-cuts. Must have productivity extension.
- (2018-05-05) Iury Souza: Loved it! Looks awesome. One thing that would greatly improve the extension is enabling searching through all modes at once. I`ve used a similar extension with that feature and I miss it here.
- (2018-03-01) Lewis MacLachlan: Sufyan don't give up now! You are so nearly there with both SAKA key and SAKA. Saka needs: - integrated search ... a mode to search bing, google at the least from the search box. Similar to surfingkey ow. Saka key needs: -You are so close my friend. I have tried vim, SurfingKeys, etc. SAKA is faster, more reliable, better organising the links so fewer characters represent the most important links (not sure if this is by design or simply because it indexes fewer links on the page). - I get you are not trying to be vim, but there are some features that are really useful without being over complex. Things like, the popup box feature with suggestions, easy remembering how to copy elements frames etc... ok i can't think of anymore right now but they exist! Get in touch if you need help. I remembered... Saka needs the thing where you can use the ][ keys to go next and previous on searches.
- (2018-02-15) Nikhilesh Sigatapu: Could there be a way to add functionality to have it open a new tab pre-populated with your search if you press a different key or if there are no results? Mostly for the action "open current instance of this page if it's currently open, else start the processing of initiating a new one..."
- (2017-08-30) Ronnie: If you like to open lots of tabs and have trouble finding the right one this lets you quickly search and jump to the right tab with your keyboard.
- (2017-08-25) Dustin Moore: Tab searching is easier now. No problems.
- (2017-08-25) Luqmaan Dawoodjee: I used to use BurstKey to switch/fuzzy search tabs. Saka is nicer looking.
