  • (2021-08-31) Open Source Freedom: Can't even get it to work. I click and nothing happens (basically inactive). no options. Something is amiss... It looks awesome at the start, but just can't make it work.

  • (2021-04-01) Christoffer Brobäck: Awesome! perfect way * to backup and restore extension settings * debloat and manipulate extensions with increasingly large datasets such as OneTab * keep setting-profiles betwin sessions * accessing some data extensions don't let you export or download to easy

  • (2018-05-01) Honza Kopecký: Saved my life! Thanks!
  • (2018-03-23) Сергей Калинин: Бесполезное расширение. Не работает с хранилищем хрома. А с хранилищами вкладки и так работают встроенные средства.
  • (2018-03-08) Remington Steed: Import is destructive. It deletes all settings, then adds only what is in your import. INSTEAD, it should only overwrite settings that exist in your storage with those from your import. I'll be glad to update my rating when this is fixed. PLEASE FIX!
  • (2017-11-08) Rahul Pable: Thanks!!!!
  • (2017-10-15) Alex Маданович: It halts debugging any other web-product, than extension/app. Tab just reloads many times that just eat CPU resources. Fix please.
  • (2017-09-30) Oliwier Wolf: Helped me alot when developing chrome extension. Couldn't find any other extension that provides chrome.storage.sync data, thank you!
  • (2017-08-23) salvatore nicosia: buon mercoledi da borghetto
  • (2017-07-29) Max Hetfeld: This extension once again saved Panda Styler extension!
  • (2017-05-16) Alexandru Ungureanu: no instructions on how to use
  • (2017-05-05) Would love to have some missing feature but it's already a must-have for Chrome extensions developers. Features I'd like to have: - Ctrl - Enter shortcut to save - More JSON-editing features: - blocks expand/collapse - auto-indent
  • (2017-05-02) Rowel: Very useful, this should have been a default in chrome.
  • (2017-04-05) Rafis Ganeev: Works very slow on large datasets.
  • (2017-04-04) Ionut Baban: Great extension. Since the icon has not browserAction attached it should be removed.
  • (2017-03-12) Paul Hitz: Works great. Thank you for creating this.
  • (2017-01-21) Oscar: On the surface: Works well for simple things, enable file access and you can explore other apps via options/background page. I've not tried import & export functionality. The change value could be inline for small values. That is why I put 4*
  • (2017-01-04) Ravi Kumar Prasad: Worked good for my purpose.
  • (2016-12-30) Антон Пегов: Realy, what is this aaddon for? It's not adding nothing extra to original chrome explorer. What I rely looking for - is ability to browse my stored objects. Not edit the JSON mess, but browse them. Why you named youre app "Explorier"? Name it JSON mess Editor than ) This is only extra functionalyty it has.
  • (2016-12-25) Veeresh Devireddy: Overall its work nice, but below issues needs to be fixed: 1. Doesn't work consistently with extensions, where it fails to reload/refresh 2. Its adding many "\n" chars in string format of json data specially with SYNC storage, but its fine with localstorage 3. Sync storage data display is truncated to "..." and not auto-wrapped. Can't see full text, have to expand everytime 4. Not displaying data size for localstorage as shown for Sync data. Rest all looks good. Lastly, please enable support for this in your dashboard, so we can create Bugs/Questions here itself and you can respond accordingly from your dashboard. Thanks!
  • (2016-12-22) Anton Bobylev: Nice extension! Helped to track chrome.store.sync state!
  • (2016-12-19) David Zhang: When I used this, I did not see chrome.local.storage info available, even though I am writing to it. I only see window.localStorage and window.sessionStorage

  • (2015-12-13, v:0.4.2) Christer Eckermann: Unresponsive with big data
    I got a value stored which is 2MB of text, the storage explorer becomes unresponsive. Would be nice if it would skip/hide/ignore large values and stay responsive.
  • (2015-05-06, v:0.4.0) Slim Sim: Error messages in chrome packaged apps
    i have a chrome packaged app (and i'm using chrome.local.storrage, which works fine with your storage area explorer) The problem is if I switch from the "console"-tab to the "Storage explorer"-tab, and back again, I will get two error-messages, these are included at the end. This is not a problem, nothing gets affected, but I just thought i should contribute.... Great extension you have built! ( window.localStorage is not available in packaged apps.
