  • (2020-07-01) Mahmood Dehghan: Works perfectly.
  • (2020-03-10) John Owens: Simple yet very useful extension.
  • (2020-03-08) Kevin G: Make sure to look at the responses to the reviews by the developers. Memory leaks, lack of a log showing time/dates, these are things of the past. Great extension. All I want to know are the times when my Internet is cutting out. However I downloaded like 4 other applications to monitor this, all of which were totally overkill for my purposes and way beyond my tech ability (and I'm definitely above-average computer literate). This simple extension is great! Just what I was looking for! Thanks dev!
  • (2019-08-10) Claude Cote: Works as advertised. Excellent when we connect and disconnect frequently. Only default: there is not any options to change the sounds. This would be very appreciated.
  • (2019-08-06) Manuel Alejandro Bouza Lavoy: Excelente extensión, efectiva y sensilla, de solo mirar su icono puedo saber si estoy conectado o no. Gracias.
  • (2019-07-26) Ruben Carlo Martinez: excellent extension!!! very helpful!!! good job!!
  • (2019-03-04) For me, it is kind of useless. If you can't tell that your internet is not working, then you don't have a problem anyway. It's simple, if you can surf the internet, you have an internet connection. If you can't, then you don't. Besides we already have warnings that we don't have connection. Either via our OS, browser and or icons at the top of your phone or at the bottom of your computer. I don't see the point in this program. It doesn't log any info or track when the connection is lost or how many times the connection is broken. So it's just another little icon that tells you what you already know.
  • (2019-02-21) Ruchit Jangid: Can you also show speed of the internet consumption...
  • (2019-01-19) Vipul Priyadarshi: Works pretty well .thanks dev :)
  • (2018-09-11) Kaizo: Very accurate. It really just showed me how crappy the people working on the Australian NBN are. At least I know when my WiFi isn't working. Good job.
  • (2018-06-19) Yaroslav Tymchyshyn: Inform when internet are coming back. Very great! Thank you!
  • (2018-05-19) Markus: I was expecting that this would log the time offline/online. I am not sure what the purpose of showing when I am offline, every browser, etc., will do that.
  • (2017-10-03) dirk sluyter: was goed
  • (2017-04-25) Joe Hettinger: This is a great little tool. It would be nice if it logged the date and time for the outages that it detected.
  • (2017-03-28) Antonio Ribalaygua: Estaba teniendo cortes con mi proveedor y de esta forma me entero exactamente de cuando se desconecta y vuelve a conectarse con un sonido. Me está funcionando perfectamente. Echo de menos que genere algún log.
  • (2017-02-05) Gladio Rocks: Very clean and helpful extension. Thanks!
  • (2016-10-29) Mr. MGTOW: Works fine, but you must disable internet and extension for 1st time to get it work
  • (2016-10-19) Aqib Aziz: Works fine, but you have to disable internet and extension for 1st time to get it work. But most people think it's crap because it doesn't start working just after installation.
  • (2016-05-10) Simon Gomes: No sirve de nada
  • (2016-03-13) Andrew Gree: Excellent! This extension is hard to find but it does what it is said perfectly - nice sounds, nice icon! Thanks! UPDATE: the extension is very leaky and can easily eat up to 0,5GB+ of RAM
  • (2015-11-09) Greg Howard: unfortunately, as another reviewer has pointed out, it doesn't seem to do anything or ever change status, even when the internet link goes down. Perhaps it only checks every ten minutes, or perhaps it is only checking the wifi state, and not the TCP/IP connection. I installed it to monitor the status of a flaky hotel connection and it doesn't help at all :-(
  • (2015-07-17) Brad Graber: It is worthless. I'm on an unreliable hotel wifi connection which is why I wanted this extension. I lost my wifi connection completely and the extension still said I was online.
  • (2015-02-13) Shahzad Munir: Very nice application and works nicely. I recommend this.

    Just installed this extension but don't understand how to see the gathered information?
  • (2020-06-15, v:2.3.0) Sophia Locklear-Jensen: log not loading
    Probably I've got something set wrong but when I use show log in 2.3.0, I get: "Internet connection log Log will appear soon..." Maybe I just need to update my chrome. :/
  • (2020-06-10, v:2.2.1) David Gorzsas: Internet connection log
    What is the difference between "No internet connection" and "No internet connection. Wi-Fi/Ethernet OK"
  • (2020-06-02, v:2.2.0) Paul Kleeberg: Log start time
    This extension is very helpful. In trouble shooting my connection with multiple machines, it would be helpful to me if the log immediately recorded the start time in addition to "no logs yet." I have 4 fixed IPs and one appears to be dropping with the others remain intact. Each log may be restarted at different times (due to machine reboots in attempt to repair) and having the start time would let me know how long the connection remained flawless for how long,
  • (2020-03-19, v:2.1.1) Vtme Vtme: What does it ping
    Does this app ping the computer ip address or something else. Im troubleshooting dropouts for 1-10 sec by my internet. Cable guys don't see it but its enough to drop skype out.
  • (2020-02-22, v:2.1.1) Marshal Pilgreen: How often does the extension test internet connectivity?
    I am curious how often it is checking for connectivity and what is it checking against to confirm connectivity?
  • (2019-10-17, v:2.1.1) Ben Carlson: Where is the log?
    You say in several posts that a log is available to show when internet connection was lost, but you never say where you can find this log. Where is it?
  • (2019-08-12, v:1.5.1) Caleb Taulbee: Logging Report
    I am just adding my request and problem resolution for finding the log files. I too would like to be able to access the log. Our IT company seems to think everything is fine with our internet and every time we call issues in it "magically" fixes itself. With a log we can prove to them the frequency.
  • (2019-08-10, v:1.5.1) Claude Cote: Sounds
    It will be very appreciated if we can modify the sounds, or know where to modify them.
  • (2019-05-21, v:1.5.1) fergal: connection ping

  • (2019-05-09, v:1.5.1) Matthew Murray: Internet connection monitor does not work
    The icon for internet connection monitor does not appear in the browser when I add the extension. Please advise how I can use it?
  • (2019-02-20, v:1.5.1) Where is the privacy policy?
    What information can you see on my browser by installing this? I like the idea of this extension but I don't feel comfortable using it because I don't know what it's doing in the background. Can it view all tabs?
  • (2019-01-29, v:1.5.1) Christine Peat: getting going
    hi, is there a standard password to open the program? ive just tried to put one in and it says invalid? many thanks christine
  • (2018-05-27, v:1.5.1) log detail
    how to check log details.
  • (2018-05-07, v:1.5.1) Logging?
    I had read that it could log, but not seeing that option/location, or any documentation about that, anywhere
