  • (2021-06-04) Naaz Dhillon: i actually kind of like the extension... but i'm trying to help the people who don't find it useful and have there schools force it on them. this might help bring the rating down just a bit.
  • (2020-12-13) Deborah Anwar: This extension is fabulous providing you are a subscriber to Britannica. It provides 3 different reading levels for your students. Information is factual and also provides the "best of the Web"for the given subject.
  • (2020-02-04) James' Films: Haven't found it useful at all. Having it forced on my by my school doesn't exactly help my enjoyment either (I know that's not your fault). Mainly just giving it a low review to bump down the overall and therefor lowering the chance of other schools force installing it on their student's computers.
  • (2018-11-19) Heavy T: Cool and good.
  • (2018-10-29) Andrew Yeeter: What a God-awful tool. This extension puts its own priority over the google insight tools that are native to the engine. It does not display very good information and is an overall disgusting tool. My district just installed this on everyone's Chromebooks and I can't disable it. Everyone giving 5 star reviews is an parent or teacher who thinks that it should be shoved into the throat of students. I am fed up with the restrictions and inconveniences that the district puts on our computers that restrict the finding of useful information. This extension only interferes with my pursuit of browsing the internet.

  • (2018-11-12, v:1.1.3) Extension stopped working
    The Britannica School Insights extension worked well for me for about two weeks, but today it stopped working. Searches that had produced a Britannica result in the past (e.g., congress) don't show a Britannica result now ... just good old Wikipedia on the right. Disappointed. How can I fix this?
