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.
Would you recommend Toby to a friend?

@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 @danr_4 @bulat_alex @mackflavelle YAY! We have a privacy policy page now!! Wohooooo! Here it is: http://www.gettoby.com/privacy
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...
Jamie@jamielovelace
@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.
Vazgen Badalyan@fogueiravb · Product & Analytics
@raphc I had the same issue - I ended up deleted product hunt extension, and then installing it again (it overwrote Tobby being the default app). I didn't find any other way of doing that.

@fogueiravb @raphc Right... haha You can still use Toby if it's not your default new tab. Just click the Toby icon and then the button "Open Toby". Then you'll see all your lists.
Josh Holland@anowlcalledjosh · Spare-time developer
@overra @raphc Awesome New Tab Page (https://chrome.google.com/websto...) looks like it does that, although it seems to be abandoned and I remember it being pretty resource-intensive.

@arthur_camara @raphc @tgerin @dtireli @jamielovelace How do you configure it so it doesn't use the new tab?
