  • (2020-03-13) Joyce Zhou: It's great. Does the job. A few things to make it even better: 1. Allow users to name their workspaces. Instead of "workspace 1", "workspace 2", I'd really like to see them as "debug XXX", "XXX issue work" 2. I think there are some compatibility issue with this extension and multiple screens. When I have 2 screens, sometimes, when I switch workspaces, all windows will squeeze themselves into one screen. This doesn't always happen but I definitely have seen it happen.
  • (2018-10-25) mynexthome 4rent: Does absolutely NOTHING! I have played around adjusting keyboard shortcuts but does NOTHING when pressed. IF there are other instructions to make this work, I do not see them anywhere.
  • (2018-10-01) Alican Gök: This extension fills one of the most, if not the most important missing productivity features for Chrome OS. Works perfectly, although I would have loved it even more if it supported finger gestures, such as a three finger drag to switch between workspaces (I assume this is a limitation of the OS)
  • (2018-08-16) Iliya Yordanov: great
  • (2018-07-22) Weyland Yutani: What was sadly lacking in ChromeOS is now happily in place. Just curious: what language(s) do you use to develop extensions? I was thinking of learning ARM Assembler. Would that be a good idea? (I was a mainframe IBM Assembler programmer long ago. I know the fundamentals. Still miss it.)
  • (2017-10-29) Earl Wagner: As soon as I seen this I became overly excited. The main reason I haven't forced myself to use ChromeOS and instead use Ubuntu via Crouton is because Multiple Workspaces are essential to me. Unfortunately every time I would swap between workspaces the existing chrome window closes and a new tab page gets opened. I am definitely looking forward to this and want to say great start. I might even contribute in the near future.

  • (2021-11-02, v:0.9.8) Brett Humphreys: Recently stopped working on all chromebooks
    Hi, Recently (maybe the last 1 month) this extension stopped working for me on 2 chromebooks and a chromebox. I'm currently running version 94 of Chrome OS.
  • (2020-05-26, v:0.9.8) Tomasz Rochumski: Workspace list
    It would be handy to see all workspaces summarized on one page
  • (2020-05-26, v:0.9.8) Tomasz Rochumski: Moving window to workspace
    It would be useful to be able to move windows between workspaces. For example: - switch to workspace - restore window from different workspace - use "move current window to current workspace" function :)
  • (2018-10-25, v:0.9.7) mynexthome 4rent: Does NOTHING
    Changing keyboard shortcuts to get it to activate does nothing. Not sure how to make this work.
  • (2018-07-22, v:0.9.7) Weyland Yutani: Next and Previous should loop
    I mean it would be good if both Next and Previous traversed all workspaces. 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4 -> 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4 -> 1 -> 2, etc, and in reverse. This is a lovely tool so far (less than 2 weeks). Possibly the most useful extension I use on ChromeOS. Thank you.
  • (2018-03-26, v: Jay Goldberg: Offer ability to go to workspaces by hotkey
    Call workspace 1 with Alt+Shift+1 for example. As of now you can only page forward and backward between spaces.
