  • (2022-08-15) Eli Fennell: Love this, it was exactly what i was looking for. The color palette used for the background is great too! Its colorful but not eye piercing.

  • (2018-09-12) Lindsay Grizzard: Great way to learn new vocabulary and a much better new tab widow than the default!
  • (2018-09-11) I'm always trying to learn new words but find it hard to surface them up. Loving this so far! As someone driven by context, my only feedback would be that if there is a way to put an example of each word being used in a sentence—that would be super!

  • (2022-09-13, v:1.3) Eli Fennell: Pronunciation
    it looks like your pulling in definitions from Merriam Webster which has an existing pronunciation feature is there any way you could incorporate that feature into your extension? thank you for your time & Consideration.
  • (2021-10-25, v:1.3) Matt Martigan: Sidebar Or PopUp Option
    I love the idea of this app, but I need my current new tab page. It would be awesome if there was an option to have the new word displayed in a pop-up message (either in-browser or push notification), with the option to open the full definition with antonyms, synonyms, etc. in the sidebar.
  • (2021-05-07, v:1.3) Rezwan Haque: Fix to load bookmark sidebar
    I'm using bookmark sidebar on various browser platforms and this great extension. But, sidebar do not open since this extension is blocking that action. I need both of this extension to work. New tab with new vocabulary and bookmark sidebar load in the current tab. Please fi it..
  • (2018-10-02, v:1.3) Ken Jones: Love the app!!!!!
    I think it would be super awesome if you could add the use of the word in a sentence. Im not sure if that info is provided to you, but if so, that would be great! Thanks again for the great extension!
  • (2018-09-17, v:1.3) words is not defined
    I'm getting this console error on all my tabs except new wordsmith tabs: `Uncaught ReferenceError: words is not defined at scripts.js:2` Love the extension otherwise!
  • (2018-09-12, v:1.3) Governor Josh: URL so I can add to "Multi New Tab"
    Hey there, I want to add your extension to Multi New Tab so I can randomly open it amongst some others. Is there an actual URL I can use for it? I tried chrome-extension://gnpnpeephndoppbobdbpigepfdklacbp/index.html but it doesn't seem to want to work. Any other ideas.
