  • (2020-11-17) Raphael Ebner: Working excellent with KeePass
  • (2020-11-05) Dale Walden: As others have said, fills the gap that KeePass needs for auto-type functionality without the need for a browser extension for KeePass itself.
  • (2020-07-27) Morph Xeno: nice blyat!!!
  • (2019-12-22) Germo Görtz: great fro Keepass
  • (2019-08-20) Charles G.: Works great and customizable.
  • (2019-06-30) Samo: Excellent plugin that works brilliantly with KeePass. Easily customisable if needed, and the default protocol + hostname is perfect for KeePass auto logins.
  • (2019-05-22) Олександр Бойко: Для KeePass те, що треба!
  • (2018-07-20) top docus: It's not the full url, for example it gives only youtube.com
  • (2018-07-18) Waye Wrong: 我去,神器啊!完美解决keepass只能匹配浏览器标题的问题
  • (2017-11-03) Yana Key: Useful!
  • (2017-08-05) Brian Costello: Really helps with KeePass.
  • (2017-02-12) Dmitriy Pom: It would be nice if it supported utf-8 domain names.
  • (2016-06-23) Ralph Kazemier: This is great when using Application Shortcuts on Windows. Now two windows running the same application at different servers/URLs can be easily distinguished.
  • (2016-05-20) Josh Holland: Works excellently with Keepass, and deals with dynamically changing titles too.
  • (2016-04-18) Ricky Yip: It works perfectly with the auto-fill function of Keepass. It almost solves the problem of 'integrating' Keepass to browsers.
  • (2016-01-14) Ingo Dettmar: Great for KeePass!
  • (2016-01-11) N Hietala: Exactly what it says on the tin.
  • (2015-11-25) Matt Burnham: Does its job too well. Needs a site blacklist or something because with Url in title enabled and YouTube Center's "Remove YouTube Title Suffix" option enabled the result is an infinite loop of this in the dev console: [Title Listener] " History " => "History - https://www.youtube.com/" [Title Listener] "History - https://www.youtube.com/" => " History "
  • (2015-08-02) métamec: I've been using it for a while, but it seems a select few websites are now able to prevent it working. The Spotify login page (on the website, not the client) springs to mind right now because I've just been there.
  • (2014-03-19) Konrad Willmert: This is so helpful, and I love that I can configure exactly how I want the title to look. It's far better than similar extensions I've tried.
  • (2013-11-04) G Ingram: I use this to expose the URL for AutoHotkey AWESOME!
  • (2013-08-03) Jonatan Cloutier: Great extension but fail too often to embed the URL in title.
  • (2012-07-31) Nathaniel Mahieu: Great and useful extension. Only problem is that sometimes it fails to append the url. I can't pinpoint when it happens but it seems to be when there are url parameters after the "?".

  • (2019-08-28, v:3.0.0) U Krew: Is there a way to identify which window a tab is open in?
    E.g. append #2 to all tabs opened in a second chrome window.
  • (2019-08-24, v:3.0.0) József Kupai: Source code
    Hi, thanks for the nice work, it's a great extension (especially if you use keepassxc). Have you considered to open source the code? It would be nice to have a look at it, and I have some ideas to contribute as well. How do you feel about that? Thanks, Joe
  • (2019-01-30, v:3.0.0) Domain as option
    Would it be possible to include {domain} as an option to display instead of the full {hostname}?
  • (2017-12-16, v:2.2.0) Alex Efros: Wrong default file name on SaveAs
    When I'm trying to download a file, for example I open https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gentoo/gentoo/d0373baf0faba5444607a02f9ba1b1047e014f65/net-misc/dropbox/dropbox-37.3.28.ebuild and press Ctrl-S, dialog window propose file name based on (modified) title, like "- https___raw.githubusercontent.com_ - Vivaldi.txt" instead of based on url, like "dropbox-37.3.28.ebuild.txt". This is very inconvenient. Maybe it's not a bug in this addon, but instead missing feature like blacklist to disable title modification for some urls (or, better, all content-types except text/html).
  • (2017-11-15, v:2.2.0) Susumu Arai: User (profile) name support
    Hi, thanks for nice program. Is it possible to add a new tag for user (profile) name?
  • (2017-11-03, v:2.2.0) Yana Key: Custom title as bookmark title
    The only little problem is that custom title will be used as bookmark title as well. If it is possible, it would be great to have something like checkbox in addon settings allowing to disable this behavior.
  • (2017-10-13, v:2.2.0) Sergey Yugoman: Microsoft Edge support
    I know it's strange, but can you make similar app for Edge? :)
  • (2017-04-20, v:2.2.0) Rohan Mahy: hostname tag variant without www.
    Like the user who requested only wikipedia.org instead of en.wikipedia.org, I was wondering if you could just offer a variation on the hostname tag which truncated "www." from the beginning of the hostname if it exists. Alternatively, if you want a shortcut way to show only the "registerable" part of the domain, it looks like the default from publicsuffix.org is most registerable prefixes are 3rd level. So just make a list of the 2nd and 4th level prefixes and have a way to specify that a prefix is never truncated. example: .com .dyndns-web.com *.amazonaws.com .k12.ma.us www.foo.co.uk does not match any of the rules above, so it is truncated to foo.co.uk. en.wikipedia.com matches the .com rule, so truncates the .en. any domain ending in amazonaws.com is shown as the whole hostname. etc..
  • (2017-03-06, v:2.2.0) Willie Smothers: Hangouts in gmail
    In gmail, when a user sends a hangouts message, it's supposed to repeatedly flash "Willie Smothers says..." in the title so that it can be seen while active in another tab. This feature doesn't work properly with "Url in title" enabled.
  • (2017-02-24, v:2.1.0) Adds repeatedly to the title
    When the site updates the title with Javascript, this extension keeps appending the url to the end of the title. For example, on https://www.bitfinex.com/trading/BTCUSD , I see (1199.9) Bitfinex - Trading - www.bitfinex.com - www.bitfinex.com - www.bitfinex.com..., with the url repeated 215 times (I have checked with wmctrl)!!! The extension should always verify the window title string to see if the url has been appended already! Thank you for your attention!
