Improving on Feedback:
We have heard a lot of great feedback, and a lot of constructive feedback since the launch of the Dashy Chrome extension. We love hearing from our community, and we take what you have to say seriously.
We have heard from a few users that they love using the Dashy Side Panel, but don’t necessarily want to be forced into having Dashy as their New Tab page. So we listened.
With our recent update, you now have the ability to set your New Tab page to be whatever you want. You can keep it as Dashy, use the Chrome start page, or set a custom page to launch with your New Tab.
How to change your New Tab page:
With the extension installed, you can customize your startup page in the following ways.
- Through the Settings widget. Open the widget, navigate to the “Customization” tab, and select from the drop box.
- Right-click on your pinned Dashy extension icon and select “Options.” You will be brought to a page with a drop box of New Tab options.
- If you don’t have Dashy pinned (come on, who doesn’t), click the extensions icon, click the three dots icon next to the Dashy extension, and select “Options.” This will take you to the same page as option 2.
We would love for you to use Dashy as your homepage and New Tab, but if you just want to use the Dashy Side Panel, we get it. We want our users to have a customizable browser that helps them get their work done easier, and we aim to deliver by any means necessary.
Thank you all for your wonderful feedback over the past weeks. We will continue to improve Dashy and the user experience. If you want to see a feature in Dashy we don’t currently offer, please let us know. Contact us through the Feedback widget or reach out to us through any of our social media channels.
