Light-bulbUpdates about the Snag Bar for Chrome

Please_share
by Amy Wong - May 04, 2012 Star_s34,722 views

Update (8/7/12 @ 10:36 PM PST): We are now out of the early Beta phase! We welcome your feedback on the new thread.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Update (7/26/12 @ 10:40 AM PST): We've "soft" launched the long anticipated Chrome Snag Bar today! But it's still in early Beta and there are likely bugs and stuff not working. You may have to reinstall extension again for final version. If that's ok with you, you can download it here :)

We've heard many many people asking us when we will have the Snag Bar for Chrome. We love using Chrome and we really wish we were in charge of the development, but since we rely heavily on the framework our toolbar vendor provides, all we could do was just to wait for them to support Chrome. The vendor had been investigating into supporting Chrome, and after some ups and down about the expected delivery date, it seems like we finally have a freamework to start developing the Snag Bar for Chrome!

That said, we've only just started to work on it and it would still take weeks for it to go live. But we are excited about this and we also would love to get your feedback on what you would like to see on the intial version of the Snag Bar for Chrome.

For the inital version, we probably will only have the Snag part (auto-collect bonus) with no 1-Click Friends or 1-Click Gifts (although you can download a separate 1-Click Gifts extension here already available for Chrome). But let us know which features on the current Snag Bar you would like to see on Chrome, maybe we can sneak it in into the first version :)

This has been a very long awaited feature and we really appreciate all of our members for being so patient with us! And hope to make many people happy once we release it! :)

@Heather and @Raya, we are definitely looking to improve on the "new tab" experience. This is provided by our extension framework provider, so we'll need to work with them. Thanks for the feedback

why not the firefox one be more like the chrome one?

Raya, I complained about the same thing a week ago (click "Show More Comments" to see) and Admin said that they might try to work on fixing that down the line, but now I see that their message has apparently been deleted...so...yeah. I guess not. But I've found that disabling the Snag Bar returns the new tab homepage to its past state. So I've just been disabling it when I'm not using it.

Is there any way to stop the snag bar from changing my "new tab" page? I liked being able to view my recently closed pages as well as have more static most visited pages (atm they all seem to disappear when I close browser)

Thanks for any help (:

Tried to use yesterday and said it collected successfully but no gifts or rewards showed up. I will use it when it gets up and running. I like chrome better since it plays pioneertrail better then the others. thanks

@Quenton it's on the list but no plans in the next few months unfortunately

Glad you are looking into a fix, because when I try to install it, the message says "click continue"... but there is nothing marked "continue" to click. install stuck at this point.

Are there any plans to add the Chrome snag bar to Ubuntu in the future?

Sorry, looks like the latest Chrome version 21 browser has broken our extension installer :( Our extension framework provider is looking into fix it now.
