Right off the bat, we want to say from our team (of three) to the whole Toby community: we really appreciate your love and support! 2016 may have been a dumpster fire of a year, but it was a stellar time for us thanks to launching Toby, and we owe it all to productivity buffs just like you who pride themselves on keeping their digital lives seamlessly organized.
As you get to know us better in 2017, you might just learn the story behind the name Toby. But for now, we’ve got some amazing numbers we’d like to share with you.
In the 4 months since we’ve launched we have over 55,000 users
USA is by far the leading country, with the most new users
(6x that of Russia, United Kingdom, Canada, Taiwan, or India)
3,500+ support emails, 100 ideas requested,
and 1,200+ newsletter subscribers
Over 700,000 tabs synced using Toby
Toby users have an average of 25 tabs.
However, one user has over 3,500 tabs (wow!)
Golden Kitty Award: 1st place as Best Chrome Extension of the Year.
Selected as one of The Best of 2016 on the Google Chrome Store
So go ahead! Pat yourself on the back. You’ve really gotten behind something big, and we’re glad Toby has helped your productivity. Now, it goes without saying that we’ve also had a couple of bumpy rides along the way. You may remember how we almost lost 10,000 users (welp) and the Google Drive sync transition to Toby sync (welp again). Since then we’ve really put a lot of time and energy into stabilizing our database.
We’re going to shape the future of productivity with our vision of collaborative workspaces. Tab management is just the very beginning of an exciting product journey, and we hope you’ll be there with us along the way. As for now, I can only say we’re working hard to figure out what Toby’s next evolution will be. Beyond adding more features, we want to ensure that every new addition is intentional and focused.
Happy new year!
Absolutely amazing, smooth, my new favorite extension. Saves massive resources and incredible organization. The joke in the creative world centers around who has the most tabs open, this is really a great design!
This extension is totally awesome. I'm a user that likes to keep tabs open rather than bookmark them (which creates a lot of clutter for me) which I then always seem to forget to revisit. Toby allows me to keep visual track of my interests and in effect is my personal "to do list" when it comes to follow-up and research. Thank you. This is by far the most useful extension I have ever come across to date.
Out of all of the "new tab" extensions I've tried, Toby is the absolute best and most useful. Tab management is a HUGE help for freelance writers like me and I'm super happy to have found such a great one. Thanks, team Toby!
