Latest reviews (2019-11-21) M H: It's useless, as many reviewers point out. The developer's suggestions do not work. The black box with the + in it is black, regardless of the website one is on. How many 1-star reviews are required before something is removed from the Chrome Web Store? (2019-11-10) Hank Hill: It's not a proper menu bar. A proper menu bar would allow for keyboard shortcuts (alt+b to open bookmarks etc). This is barely more than a purely cosmetic extension. (2019-11-09) David Galbraith: Only thing that happens is clicking the black square with the plus sign shows a dropdown menu (a little better than the 3 dot option), not an actual menu bar above. The youtube tutorial doesn't even match the current version and has 70% downvotes. The dev just doesn't seem to get that his extension is broken at least for the latest versions of Chrome. (2019-11-02) Paul Murany: didnt work sucked beyond measure (2019-10-13) Oh Guru: Does not work on Google page ...funny (2019-10-01) James LaBarre: Can't do anything to fix Google's cr*p software engineering. (2019-09-19) Larry Rasmussen: Thanks Stefanvd.net this is really helpful***** (2019-09-07) James Capra: Just an awful piece of code. All this blinking when browsing from one sight to another is major league annoying. (2019-09-01) Zel Canter: i hate Chrome because it doesn't have the "File Edit View etc." It tells you that you can add those things by clicking the square with the white cross and then clicking the "Proper Menu Bar is Off" to turn it on. Yeah?? That works some of the time, but like now, I have clicked it on and off and on again and those commands jsut do not appear. So, it only works sometimes, and besides, I want to have those things automatically appear when I bring up the website, I don't want to suddenly discover that they aren't there when I need them. And, what a waste to have to "Book Mark" things when I had plenty of "Favorites" in the old Google. So, when I wnat to save something, I have to bring the old Google up and then make the site a "Favorite" rather than start again with the Chrome "bookmarks". I know the engineers at Chrome know best and know what's good for me, but I would like to have had the option of just continuing with Google only so many sites don't support it and you're forced to use the burdensome Chrome. Well ... not really, there is Fire Fox as an easier alternative. Too bad this si a cry in the wilderness as the Chrome engineers know it is still best for me .... (2019-08-19) T C: What we want is for the Menu Bar to appear at the top and not just in some Black Icon with a Cross. Wasting of time to install. Will uninstall this extension. And will use back Firefox - better option than Google Chrome. (2019-08-16) Earleen Lillegard: Sometimes on some stefanvd.net pages the menu bar will display properly under the existing chrome bookmarks toolbar, with an "x" exit button on the right end of the menu bar. However 99% of the time it will not display on any website. The extension icon is set to "Proper Menu Bar Is On", but the menu options "File", "Edit", "View", etc. are displayed in the extension button drop-down instead of on the page as a toolbar. (2019-08-15) Nickolai Gypsy: the worst! not worth downloading! forget about it !! (2019-08-06) Lisa Mullings: Very helpful!! (2019-08-04) Lynn Redmond: Terrible. Would not install so it would be up on top. (2019-07-12) Skillet: Does not work as advertised even after watching the video and following all the steps. Like others, no menu bar appears along the top of the Chrome browser itself. There is a dropdown listing of items when you click the black box; however, I would not categorize that as a "Menu Bar" at all. Any extension that takes this much time and effort only to wind up not working for several people for the same issue does not rate greater than two stars. A nice try, but obviously more testing is needed to solve this issue. (2019-07-12) Mary Skelton: Worthless. I want the menu bar back that allowed me to email a story through my comcast account since I rarely use gmail. Firefox has Google Chrome beat by miles in ease of use. Stop fixing what was not broken! (2019-07-08) Nancy Dove: IT DOESN'T WORK! (2019-06-08) Cathy Brown: Works great no problem. Those that say can't see have to navigate to web page to use bar. Great add on.... (2019-05-21) Denny Chiu: Does not work. Does not appear above address bar. Clicked on it in Chrome extensions. Still does not work. (2019-05-14) Natty Tempest: All this adds is a single button that CONTAINS the menu-bar I want. Why would any user need another drop-down tree inside another button? I have turned it on from the 'Proper Menubar' + symbol, which has not made any changes in the interface of any website I visit. I have gone through the settings and selected: Show the browser menu bar, as that is what I wanted. I have selected: Show the bar on all websites included not Google sites, because that's what I wanted from this extension. What I have is YET ANOTHER icon on my browser that opens a drop-down has all the useful things hidden in ANOTHER drop-down... The image on the front page shows an actual menubar that is underneath the address bar. Either explain how to achieve that, or remove the false image. (2019-05-09) rgdwn1: Followed instructions and menu bar only appeared once. How about giving us some real help without leaving out details or steps, and, please, provide links. (2019-05-06) The copy and paste functions do not work. I copy using it and when I want to paste: nothing to paste! (2019-05-05) Anon UK: this is not a menu bar! it's a list of favorite bookmarks. nor does it add on top like a menu. it's added in the browser. (2019-02-02) Родом из СССР!: Спасибо разработчики. Очень полезное расширение, давно искал (2018-12-19) Winston Entertainment: can you fix it to work for the new gmail
