Bookmarks are for books, not browsers. Organize your browser tabs into Toby so you can access key resources in one click instead of seven. Toby is browser extension that helps organize your tabs.

Is any, and if so what, of my information sent to your servers?

I'd like to know that too. no privacy policy/tos
@davor_se nothing is sent to our servers. In fact, Toby is a client side only app, so we have no way of knowing which tabs you add to Toby, or names you give to your lists. We do use third party software for analytics, though, and meta data is sent anonymously so we can learn how people are using it. We just count how many times Toby or the pop up was used in general, how many times a tab was added or removed, a list was added or removed, or a card was clicked. We also use google analytics for the site.

@danr_4 Hi! We're getting the privacy policy sorted out now. Will be done ASAP. Clearly the underlying principal is we won't be shitty, but apparently lawyers want more then that. **Head Shake**

@davor_se in case you don't want to transfer any info to third-party servers, you need this https://www.producthunt.com/post...
Lots of extensions are competing to get the Chrome New Tab space ! I used to have the Product Hunt Extension showing up today's hunt in my New Tab. And I like to have it. So how can I keep PH Extension for my new tab and use Toby at the same time ? It would be nice to have the possibility to use Toby without being forced to have it in a new tab.

@raphc this exactly, I use speed dial a lot and I'm not sure I'm ready to give it up to use Toby (as much as I love the UI).
@raphc you'll have to choose one of the apps I'm afraid...
@raphc Would be pretty rad to open the tabs from inside the context menu next to your URL bar I think
@raphc @tgerin @dtireli @jamielovelace You can use it without having it in a new tab :) When you install it, it will use your new tab, but if you want to use something else as a new tab, you still can continue to use Toby. Click the Toby icon and you'll see button "Open Toby". That will open the dashboard in case you don't want to have it on your new tab :) Great point, though! Thanks a lot for your feedback and for trying it out! Let me know if you have any other thoughts

@raphc there's an idea for an extension. A Chrome New Tab extension that has an API for other extensions to inject widgets from other extensions.

Downloaded. Couldn't even try it stopped by request to register account. If every minor Chrome extension would require registration for usage, it would be nightmare. There are OneTab that does similar job very good with no need to provide an email.

This one looks like hustling to get your contacts and spam you.

Pros:

None

Cons:

I'd never recommend anything that requires registration to even see. A small utility like many that has absolutely no need for registration.

Downloaded the product, looks great and perfect for a big problem I have had for years with bookmarks and then later realized that my brownser home page had change to toby?!?! what?? not cool. If you will change a setting in my browser you HAVE to let me know, and if you did let me know then it was not clear AT ALL.

Pros:

Really nice onboarding and interface

Easy to use

Cons:

I got deceived, and now google is no longer my browser home page but is Toby... why?

Yes, it will be nice to import our bookmark to Toby. Love the product but want that feature
Toby changes the "New Tab" page, a function clearly stated in the description in the Chrome Store. If your browser is set to open a new tab when clicking the home button then Toby becomes your home page... You can switch what is opened with the home button in Chrome's settings, which I suggest going through before changing default functionality with extensions.

My friend Arthur is one of the productivity nuts. Always looking for a way to claw back precious time stolen by shitty processes and stupid UX design. So he built Toby, cause tabs suck! Toby makes them not suck. Or not as much at least. Most of us at the office are using this religiously now. It makes managing waaaaay to much information much more gooder. We (but really he) would love to answer your questions about why he built it, why the other solutions on the market weren't the right fit for him, and some of the cool features we plan on launching in the next couple weeks.

@mackflavelle Thank you for this. As a tab hoarder myself, this is godsend.
