  • (2021-07-24) Presto Cadenza: While this extension works reasonably well, I can not recommend anything related to pinboard. Pinboard looked promising 5 years ago, when I paid for an archival account. Now that my subscription is ending, I can not get Pinboard to send me my archive. Emails went unanswered, my post to the pinboard google support group was not approved, dm on twitter was unanswered. A public comment on twitter got me a reply that he'd "look into it", then nothing. Maciej is infamous these days for his complete lack of customer support -- I've had multiple unanswered emails over the past 5 years. The official Pinboard twitter account is a mess of political rants. Save your money -- and your bookmarks -- and look elsewhere. My current recommendation is raindrop.io
  • (2020-06-30) Dula Abdu: No support and it's flaky. I am not going to renew
  • (2019-11-01) Mike Rogers: Broken in Chrome 79. Prompts for login when attempting to bookmark when already logged in.
  • (2019-10-04) Alexander Hammer: Nice and simple to use. Two issues: It does not close when a bookmark is saved AND it does not indicate if the site is already saved, for example by showing a blue needle.
  • (2019-08-22) its4fjm: What a relief to find this... however I agree seeing that blank page after the first save was disconcerting.
  • (2019-08-04) John Brady: This extension works great on the whole. (In fact I probably wouldn't be able to use PinBoard without it, since I could never figure out PinBoard's own instructions for saving pages.) As many users have noted, when an article is saved, a blank pop-up window remains, an obvious and annoying bug. Other than that, no complaints.
  • (2018-04-13) Jorge: Has become very slow, previously has been working for years. Now when clicking save, it will take 3-10 seconds to load the next interface where I can enter info about a pin. Aside from recent slowness this is 5 stars.
  • (2018-04-04) Ed Cardinal: Exactly what I need, functional (if not "pretty").
  • (2017-08-23) Raman Gupta: Same as other reviewers: works but the post-save blank page definitely doesn't give one a sense of "Yes, my link just saved correctly".
  • (2017-08-14) Kirk True: I'll echo the other reviewers. It works perfectly fine, but the blank page after the save is unintuitive and I sometimes feel impelled to go check to ensure it was actually saved. Pretty amazing that it hasn't been updated in ~6 years though and still works as advertised.
  • (2017-02-28) Lucas Nicodemus: Seriously, fix the bug that causes the popup not to close when a bookmark is saved. Ffs.
  • (2016-03-15) Works fine. Kinda ugly. It's annoying that the popup doesn't close when the bookmark is saved.
  • (2015-09-15) Kai Carver: I use "Save tab set" for a little help in handling the out-of-control overpopulation of tabs that reflects my disorganized mind always veering dangerously close to a breakdown. It's also handy to find a tab when I have 50 tabs open in 7 windows.
  • (2015-09-11) Alexandra Spillane: I like it so far, but the empty white box it leaves behind after saving a new bookmark is super annoying. I'd also like the ability to Cmd+click (or similar) to automatically open the "Save to Pinboard" screen, instead of having to click the icon then click the "Save to Pinboard" menu item.
  • (2015-04-06) Simon Morgan: When I click "Save to Pinboard" literally nothing happens. It doesn't even respond to the click.
  • (2015-02-05) Laura (Ludwinas): The popup doesn't close automatically :(
  • (2014-12-30) Tobias Holeiter: Doesn't work with Chrome 39.0
  • (2014-12-11) Andrei Simionescu: It's OK. Pinboard Plus is better.
  • (2014-11-11) Christopher: Works great for me.
  • (2014-10-09) Arnór Bogason: Love the new hi-res icon, thanks!
  • (2014-08-16) Michael Murphy: Any chance you can add a hotkey function that opens the add bookmark. I know there's an extension out there but it not the best.
  • (2014-02-05) Brian Boatright: I was excited to install this plugin but the "Save to Pinboard" isn't working but "Read Later" does work... not sure why.
  • (2014-01-09) Armen Abrahamian: The dropdown from the toolbar button no longer display correctly 90% of the time on Chrome 31 on OS X 10.9.1.
  • (2013-12-11) Jeff Welch: Please, PLEASE add a keyboard shortcut to save a page to pinboard!
  • (2013-10-10) Patrick Honorez: Good, but: -Does not close after saving bookmark, -Should show (color change ?) whether current page is Pinboarded or not. I really like Pinboard and its Android app, but this Chrome extension (and the other ones I tried) needs some improvements to reach the level of Yagbe (extension for Google bookmarks)
  • (2013-10-01) Tamīm Swaid: Pretty sad that the extentsion doesn't get so much love. - Popup could be configurable (Direct Tagging without the need for another choice) - After adding the bookmark I still see a white window. Need to click somewhere to close it.
  • (2013-08-29) Miguel Angel Durán García: The popup show so small and unusable. :(
