  • (2018-10-11) Tom Stein: Es stellt 1:1 die Lesezeichen als Metro-Kacheln dar. Das ist gut, zuverlässig, funktional. Leider gibt es keine Suchfunktion. Und nun zu den No-Go:s Das FAVICON wird nicht ausgewertet, alle Kacheln haben zunächst die gleiche Farbe, Kacheln können nur einzeln neu eingefärbt werden (keine "zuletzt benutzten Farben", kein "Copy Layout"). Außerdem reagieren die Kacheln nicht auf das Mausrad zum Scrollen, nur die Lesezeichen der Lesezeichenleiste (und nicht die weiteren Lesezeichen) werden als Gruppen dargestellt, und ein Verschieben der Tiles ist überhaupt nicht möglich. Also Optik OK, Funktion saumäßig, Mehrwert bescheiden.
  • (2018-05-30) Bryce !: Presque bien. Il manque la possibilité de réorganiser avec le drag'n drop et de faire défiler avec la molette de la souris (car on ne voit pas ce qui dépasse à droite)
  • (2018-02-25) Sharon Baker: not what i was looking for
  • (2015-07-09) Miles: boooooooooooooooooooooooo
  • (2015-07-09) Oleksandr ZuzA: На вид неплохо. Но не работает прокрутка
  • (2014-08-10) Izabela Ozga: It's very good extension! But please add some option: 1. User should be able to add their own icon to the tile. It's is more clear when you search something. And it's more like in Windows 8 system. 2. Deleting bookmark. Something like a bookmarks manager. 3. I have some problem with a scroll bar. It's a very cool application. :) Thanks You for this!
  • (2014-07-06) Errorist: Not bad
  • (2014-04-11) Marshall: Pretty, but not very functional. You have to give it credit, though. It perfectly recreates Windows 8's UI.
  • (2013-05-10) Josh Warnick: I really like this extension. Very slick and a refreshing break from a white background. Some improvements that need to be made: Subfolders. This doesn't need to simply be a style-steal from the Windows team. If you're designing a whole new tab screen, you should be able to come up with some way to place folders within folders on it. Tile icons. Users should be able to add their own icons and apply them to the tile. Scroll. Several reviews have complained that there is no scrolling option and this needs to be addressed. May I suggest a bounding box system, where moving your mouse to the edge of the screen slides the view? Also it would be amazing if the author could add in tile-cursor reactivity, like how in WP7 and WP8 when you hold the edge of a tile it rotates toward the 'pressure'. This is kind of a pipe dream for me seeing as the most recent review was a year ago, but oh well. Maybe I'll just have to write my own Metro NT screen.
  • (2013-02-25) It looks amazing, but it needs more options.
  • (2013-02-11) webHauser WM: Nice design, but totally unusable. Wastes lot of space on screen. Cannot display tab folders. I cannot scroll right/left with mouse.
  • (2013-01-28) 成樂只: ....看不懂如何操作 不直覺 跟win8的不一樣
  • (2012-11-11) A neat extension to replace the default new tab page. Needs slight improvements, I hope to see the author keep working on this. :3
  • (2012-11-08) Bhagavat das: simple, fast, low memory usage. just great
  • (2012-11-02) manueljlin: ES LA PEOR DEL MUNDO
  • (2012-10-19) Aprianto Nursetiawan: I love it! Is there any option to move the tiles around?
  • (2012-09-28) Zi Yi Lim: Third Review: This start page is excellent for those looking for a simple, clean and low memory-footprint start page. New customisation options makes this even more enticing. 1. Colour variations welcome, but can get a tad too troublesome. Something broke with the background image uploader as well. My images can't go through. 2. The sidebar is a great addition. Clean and simple, and easily accessible with a right click. 3. Nice to include an easy copy of Apps into Bookmarks, but would still prefer to have a dedicated Application path. 4. Option to remove domain name - nice touch there, made the whole thing a lot cleaner. 5. Option to change font colours added - more variation available for users' background choice. 6. Bug which caused an error when clicking home page from the current webpage has been fixed. Things that could be added/changed: 1. Option to change the size of the tiles without adding the word "llarge" at the back of my bookmarks. Since I use a bookmark bar as well, having "llarge" at some of my bookmarks isn't really a pretty sight. 2. Possibly a hand cursor when I mouse over a tab Still, this is a great extension and this is going to be my new start page.
  • (2012-09-21) Akkumaru DreamR: I love it! Only one thing stands before me. It doesn't show my folder in a bookmarks folder! Super annoying!
  • (2012-09-20) Ross Yes: Too much customization is needed on the client's end. All the tiles have the same blue color and it's too much work (although somebody might find this to be fun) to go over every single bookmark and change its color to a more relevant one. No option to put an image instead of a mono-colored background. No option to show most visited instead/beside the bookmarks. The overall feel is nice though, very smooth scrolling, etc. Just not enough functionality yet
  • (2012-09-18) Кристиян Николов: It's good, but can you make the bookmarks that are not in folder to be in the beginning. Edit: The mouse scroll doesn't work. Can't scroll left or right with it. (Windows 7, Chrome 21.0.1180.89) +1 for Nata O's suggestion.
  • (2012-09-14) Nata O: I totally love the design, but it would be nice if users could choose which bookmarks folder to display - not only the Bookmarks bar, but create a separate folder and move only a few links there. Abscence of this feature prevents me from using this extension, because my bookmarks bar contains lots of foders and the start tab is just enormous.
