  • (2022-04-25) fires3as0n: I have not investigated why, but this addon breaks angular apps navigation (at least in dev mode). Looks like it uses some high level wrappers that breaks NgZone from running properly
  • (2022-03-05) NextLevelDevil: worked for twitch tabs for a long time but stopped as of 5th march 2022
  • (2021-04-28) Rafael Rossi: Really good, watching Instagram videos without any problem. Tks.
  • (2021-04-27) Bryanna I: did not work
  • (2021-03-27) Georg F: Garbage doesn't do anything. The ad stops playing even with the extension installed. Don't load it. It is just waste.
  • (2020-12-18) Burak Şahin: AWESOME WORK THANK YOU
  • (2020-06-30) David —: Very useful 90% of the time, but as others have said it does prevent some Angular websites from working correctly. A built-in blacklist feature would make this an easy 5 stars.
  • (2020-02-08) Baptiste Ashka: This is a cool extension but it breaks some Angular websites (namely angular.io, menu stops working after some clicks).
  • (2019-12-07) Michael Jackson: Very useful for websites that lower video quality if you switch tabs.
  • (2019-10-31) Max: It works, however it interferes with some web pages. Hence, I had to remove this extension.
  • (2019-08-14) Matthew Edmundson: Great extension for listening to Twitter videos in a background tab without logging in, but certain websites like the Washington Post are able to detect it as an ad blocker. It'd be useful if you could toggle it, or even have a blacklist so that it skips certain sites.
  • (2019-04-26) Suhail Akhtar: Instagram pauses the video if the tab is switched. This extension prevents it to pause and keep playing after changing the tab also.
  • (2017-05-24) Extension prevents websites from knowing that you switched tabs. A privacy/ ad blocker must have.
  • (2015-02-23) Alexis Raguénès: Nice extension, Do you know if there any equivalent on Firefox ?
