Workona is a better way to work in Chrome

We all work in the browser, but it was never built for work. We’re proud to be taking Workona out of beta this week to address the problem and we hope you enjoy the product!

    Pros: 

    Managing tabs, quickly opening tabs for a certain context, dealing with "I might want to look at this later" guilt when closing things

    Cons: 

    Doesn't sync with mobile Chrome

    Workona has helped me tame the tab explosion that comes from working in web apps all day. I set up workspaces related to projects or responsibilities, so I can pull up an entire set of related tabs at once. This lets me have all my tabs of notes, related material, project plans, etc. at hand without having to dig through Google Drive and Confluence. It's even better when I'm running from meeting to meeting and need to switch from one set of related material to another.

    Pros: 

    Super easy to jump back into previous workflows without keeping tabs open

    Cons: 

    It's desktop only. I still have like 90+ open tabs on mobile :)

    I've been using Workona for a few months now, and it has drastically reduced the time & cognitive cost associated with context switching in my daily work. It's easier than it's ever been for me to jump right back in where I left off because all my tabs are neatly organized and stashed away. It's definitely worth a try.

Thanks for sharing @trtm 🙌 Out of all the tab managers I've experimented with, I'm really liking this one just an hour after using it 🚀 On average, in one hour I'd probably have like 5 windows with ~10 tabs on each but I've only been on one window for now 😬 Great job @qamorgan & @alma_madsen 👏 Would love to know what's in store for Workona :)

What a nice review @amrith! Great to hear we’ve helped you clear your desk and focus on what you’re doing. We’re building the OS for work on the web, and workspaces are just the start. Workspaces will become more powerful and smarter in the next few months. We aren’t ready to talk about everything we want to do long-term just yet, but we think you’ll enjoy what we have in store.

I am absolutely in love with this service 🙂, for years I had issues finding my precious tabs from previous sessions again, and often I ended up being doing double the work, as I had to spend time finding my research again plus organizing everything as well. Workana has figured out a solution, and I can highly recommend this for researchers, designers and everyone else who works with a lot of things at once. Great work and congrats to @workana with the launch. It’s good to see that there are born great software and service teams even tho others die, like the beloved email service Newton.

Thanks for the glowing recommendation, @produkhelt! We’re super passionate about quality products and have put a lot into getting Workona where it is today - we hope it shows. And this is just the beginning. 😉

Thanks @bitrewards! Having all of your documents scattered across various cloud apps can make work far more difficult than it needs to be. Workona gives you a simple, yet flexible system to manage all of the projects, meetings, and workflows that make up your job in one place. Rather than organizing documents with nested categories like most file systems, we help you organize documents by what you’re doing. This means you always have easy access to everything you need for the project as you work, and it makes it much simpler to share project resources with collaborators.

Awesome! I've been using it for the last couple of days! It's really good, good job @qamorgan & @alma_madsen! Could you please let us customize the home screen (custom wallpaper or bg color)? And maybe make the user able to change the location of the search bar.

Thanks @frizurd, glad you’re enjoying it! We have a bunch of configuration options in the pipeline for the new tab.

Really like this one. Previously I tried another extension with a similar concept called Toby, but didn't use it for long. What I like about Workona is the ability to switch between workspaces while still keeping tabs of an inactive workspace opened but hidden, that way, for example, you can keep listening to a video in another workspace. Great job!

Thanks @iliaz! Pro tip: You can also pin tabs to make them available within every workspace you open within that window. For example, you might keep Gmail and Spotify pinned so you always have easy access no matter what workspace you're in.
