Always has been an amazing app. The permission issue has been resolved - dev is very responsive and helpful.

Please can someone suggest an alternative now that they demand access to read and change data on all websites? Used to be a 5 star extension. I was OK there was a page pop-up each week as some people must click the ads on that page so that's our little payment. Maybe not enough payment.... Because these new permission changes sound very dodgy. Time to move on. I am keeping it active for a day or two but certainly won't be logging into any sites while it is enabled.

Hi Matthew Mayer! The permission change was the result of a deployment issue and has since been corrected in v28.0.3. Thanks for notifying and apologies for any inconveniences.

Very useful app if using the Google Ecosystem. All Google-apps I use (and dozens I don't) are here. The shortcut menu is easily customizable and extendable. Recommended! --- previous 2-star Review 14.04.2024, removed since developer promptly fixed the issue "Read and change all your data on all websites?" Why not creating a new Extension for the "GMail this" feature instead of risking losing the trust of your users? The number of popular extensions/apps/websites that have been taken over/hi...

Hi Yiannis Dermitzakis! The permission change was the result of a deployment issue and has since been corrected in v28.0.3. The extension has not been hijacked/sold or anything. So there is not reason to worry about that. Thanks for notifying the issue and apologies for any inconveniences.

This, out of nowhere, started asking for all kinds of permissions! Not a good move. This should go nowhere beyond "shortcuts". edit: I found the very last line in the description, 'The extension needs access to all of your websites to use the "GMail this" feature, that copies a selected text into a new mail.' OK, I got it, and I don't need it. It is sad that I have to let this extension go for the feature I would never use. I wish it kept itself as simple as a set of shortcuts as the na... Show more

This extension works similar to all of those New Tab and New Home Page extensions. It simply adds icons for you to click for your most used utilities, although only for Google. What's missing is one of the most basic fundamentals of shortcuts: Keyboard Shortcuts. When entering a new Custom Shortcut, users should have the ability to program or overwrite their preferred keyboard shortcut. Once the user gets used to the new keyboard shortcuts, everything gets streamlined.

Useless, we can just use the google search bar instead of opening a whole new tab to use the search bar again, unless it was easier to go to it. I don't really recomend this extention

The point of the extension is to not have to open a new tab. You can use the little popup to access your Google Shortcuts. In any case, this extension might not be for everyone, that is no reason to give a 1 star.

There's no need to let us know in a forced new tab about every new shortcut and update. Please let us disable it and I'll change to 5 stars.
