Latest issues

  • (2017-11-26, v:5.1.0) Andrew John: Date Format
    Great extension. Thanks. Perhaps future versions could allow for an option to set the date format to non-US standards, too. Or perhaps it could be set automatically based on system settings? Cheers!
  • (2017-11-25, v:5.1.0) Andrew John: Most Visited Panel
    Great new tab replacement! Thanks for your work. My problem: Newly visited sites, regardless how often I visit them, do not show up in this panel. I have allowed 20 sites to be listed. Currently it lists 7 sites, so there's plenty of room. Is there any way to manually add sites to the Most Visited Panel (perhaps through coding)?
