  • (2016-11-19) Martin Štefanko: I am using gmail mostly with keyboard shortcuts. Would it be possible to highlight current selection, not only the mouse over?
  • (2014-10-30) Trisha Borrini: Funktioniert einwandfrei. Schade, dass man die Schriftfarbe nicht auch verändern kann, so könnte man auch eher dunkle Farben als Highlighter benutzen. Daher nur 4*.
  • (2014-01-21) Charles Prince: I absolutely love and couldn't live without it!
  • (2013-03-15) Steven Stockton: Now appears to work, so raising my rating from two stars to five. My previous review: Nice idea, but not working with Chrome v22.0.1229.94 m and Gmail "new look" (forced on users earlier this year)
  • (2012-11-17) Cristian: don't work
  • (2012-10-27) Kumar Narasimhan: it used to work before but now it does not work at all!

  • (2012-08-14) Alessandro Mastrogiacomo: Fantastic app, but it recently stop working (since I updated to google chrome 19.0.1084.56) Still not working on Chrome 21.0.1180.75, please, please update the extension!!!
  • (2012-06-30) Mohammed Ahmed Kamal: I m not able to RUN... i cant see the effects in my GMAIL...pls help
  • (2012-05-17) Martin Renvoize: Agree with 'Thijs De Block', it seems to have stopped working (Whether thats a Chrome update or a Gmail update, I'm unsure) When it is working though, it's an excellent addition to Gmail!
  • (2012-05-16) Thijs De Block: Seems to have stopped working since latest chrome update? Love it, nevertheless.
  • (2012-03-14) Trevor Lee Reynolds: great app, but I use the dark theme in gmail, and that bright yellow is just too far out...the option to change highlight color (and possibly the contrasting text) would make this a 5star app... for now I'll put up with it and see if it grows on me, but I'm really not feeling it :(
  • (2012-02-26) Good stuff. :) Does what it says on the tin.
  • (2011-12-29) Charles Silva: Love it

  • (2018-03-09, v:1.4.0) A Khwaja: Unread Colours
    I am unable to see colors for read and unread messages. I tried to use options to change colors but it does not work. Hover row highlights work.
  • (2017-07-20, v:1.4.0) Russ: New Permissions are suspect!
    why the hell do you need to extend the reach of this extension with "read and change data for contacts, inbox, and mail"? Whilst this is a great extension I'm removing it because of this change, and I'll wait for another row highlighter or for you to undo your latest overreach.
  • (2017-07-06, v:1.4.0) Dean Shwed: New Permissions???
    As much as I like your extension. I really don't like the fact you need to read and change my data for contacts and inbox. This seems completely unnecessary and highly suspicious.
  • (2017-07-06, v:1.4.0) david obront: permissions
    why did you expand permissions???
  • (2017-07-05, v:1.4.0) Russell Warren: Why the new permissions?
    Why does this extension now need the ability to read and change data for contacts, inbox, and mail? This seems highly unnecessary for a row highlighter.
  • (2016-04-03, v:1.3.1) Pasquale Cangiano: How the hell do you change the colors?
    I can not find where you change the colors ! Also like everyone else I would like the keyboard control to react like mouse hover that would make this way more useful
  • (2015-10-09, v:1.3.1) Netspeedz: Stylish Scripts
    This extension doesn't work if there are any stylish scripts used.
  • (2014-06-05, v:1.3.1) Interaction with keyboard controls
    Currently, the highlighting is specific to the mouse pointer. I often use keyboard controls in gmail; therefore, I would appreciate an enhancement where the row on which the keyboard controlled marker is on gets highlighted.
  • (2013-09-14, v:1.3.1) LG: highlight isn't working
    how do I get this to work in my google apps account? Thanks. [email protected]
  • (2012-11-16, v:1.2) ERCAN ARSLAN (m85000): bug
