Reviews

  1. Armstrong says:

    Very nice, I like he look & feel of this extension =D

    By the way, what’s that green rss icon? =P

  2. Joran says:

    Mentions and DM’s aren’t working yet, right?

  3. slipgoat says:

    I like that! Very convenient.
    I will be waiting a more features 😉

  4. vjnrv says:

    Armstrong, Thank you….

    The green rss icon is Feedly: http://feedly.com

  5. Armstrong says:

    Thanks for the tip, I’ll try it.

    By the way, for some reason, now Chrowety takes too much time to load the tweets in my timeline, and sometimes doesn’t even load it.

    I’ll be waiting for the features to come =)

  6. I can confirm what Armstrong just said. I installed Chrowety today and had it running fine for some hours. Then, for some unknow reason, it stopped working as no newer tweets are being fetched and show in my timeline.

    Don’t know what happened as I didn’t do anything else besides the usual. I even tried loging out and loging in again from my Twitter account from within Chrowety but it didn’t helped. I can log in to my Twitter account, but now not even a single tweet is being fetched and showed in my timeline.

    Posting tweets also are not working. Both when trying to read and when trying to post tweets Chrowety will just sit there trying to fetch and/or send data forever.

  7. perzo says:

    The look & feel is awesome.

  8. Tsung.W says:

    Hi,can you plz provide https auth version(or width customizable api)??I’m in China, and the government imposes a blockade on twitter..thx very much..

  9. Trenton says:

    Yea same here. I hope you improve time it takes to notify us about new tweets.I like the google wave feel as well keep it up.

  10. Trenton says:

    Also can you put a notifications when we get new tweets? And can you show the real 12hr time and not
    Sun Nov 22 05:15:03 +0000 2009 from web…The time is all wrong. It suppose to show 12:15am. Can you show it like twitter “3 minutes ago from web” comes in handy!

  11. Amod says:

    Very nice looks 🙂
    But I cannot change the tabs , i.e Home, mentions, DMs … either on Linux or Windows. Is it Chrome’s problem or the extension’s ?

  12. Ben Smith says:

    Is there an option to change the time? It always says “+0000” and I live in -5000.

  13. Luciano says:

    The wave-inspired replies is awesome! congratulations!

  14. vjnrv says:

    Thank all, i’ll update next week with new features and fixes..

    If someone wants a new feature or show a bug , type here…

  15. Armstrong says:

    Support for other languages, Twitter is available in Spanish now =P

    The updates writes from Chrowety could be listed as “… 2009 from Chrowety” if that’s possible. It would be nice.

    When I post an update, it appears hide with the “1 new tweet” label… it should be visible instantly… (sorry for my English, this was hard to write XD).

  16. Ryan Snook says:

    This is really nice, however, everything above the tabs seems take up a lot of space and is unnecessary.

  17. Tsung.W says:

    Can you plz provide a customizable api version??I can’t access twitter directly..or a https auth version?thx very much

  18. Armstrong says:

    Other thing… the notification number of unread tweets only appears when I update, but not when others update they status.

    Improve load speed and tabs space.

    I still loving the look =P

  19. The Truth says:

    Doesnt work. “Loading” forever. After 2 hours!!! it finally worked and then no way to click on Mentions and Direct messages.

    Sorry, but this extension is a big failure.

  20. perzo says:

    Hm…. looks like it has a problem with auth…

  21. v1ncent says:

    You have done an EXCELLENT work, really, i know how difficult can be to do extensions for chrome in this stage, and i have to applause you.

    However, i agree with some comments on the wasted space above the tabs. Maybe you could put the user info on the right side and reduce a lot of space.
    Also, the width could be 15% bigger. Just a matter of taste i guess, but i think it would be more comfortable.

    Thank you for this app.

  22. tatbrat says:

    @TheTruth: That was a very mean comment you made. These folks are trying to make extensions for all of us to make our Google Chrome experience better. No reason to be so harsh by acting like a prick.

  23. iwanderer says:

    Doesn’t connect by https,yet?

  26. Benoît says:

    Doesn’t load tweets

  27. Thangaraju says:

    Popup was working on first click, it ask for credential and got loading message only, but I can able to work with. On subsequent calls it is not working,
    Simply ask for username and password, and showing information as “Something went wrong…”..
    🙁

  28. Pedro Junior says:

  30. Demmitri says:

    IT DOESN’T WORK WITH ME, takes a looooooooooooooooooooong time to update and sometimes it doesn’t even update the status…

  31. /urgu says:

    Chrowety looks superb, fantastic job! I’d consider it the best if you could provide three things: One, an option to turn off the sound in the alerts (it is kinda irritating). Two: Prevent the alt-text from appearing when the mouse pointer is placed over the tweet. And most IMPORTANTly, Three: Reduce refresh interval to one minute. I love this extension, and really wish to see these improvements in the future. Thanks in advance.
