Frequently Asked Questions

What is Toby?

Toby is a new tab browser extension that lets you manage tabs and create lists on Google Chrome.

Toby is opening on every new tab. Can I turn that off?

Toby has two versions, Toby and Toby Mini. They are exactly the same, except that Toby opens on every new tab and Toby Mini doesn't. We promote the original Toby on every new tab because that's the best way to keep your productivity up, but feel free to choose the one that best suits your workflow! :)

How does Toby sync work?

Toby sync is associated with a Toby account. Once you create an account sync will automatically happen. When you download Toby on another computer just login and your last saved state will appear!

Can I restore my tabs?

Yes, we can only restore your tabs if you are using Toby sync. We save multiple states across different time periods in order to provide an accurate rollback. We got you! Send us a message through our contact form or to

Can I open my bookmark bar while using Toby?

To open your bookmark bar while using Toby on the new tab is simple. Just use this keyboard shortcut: [Cmd + Shift + B] or [Ctrl + Shift + B] within Chrome, that should do it!

Which browsers does Toby work on?

Currently, Toby is only available on Google Chrome. We’re getting lots of requests for Safari and Firefox extension support as well. Enter your email here to be kept in the loop on Toby updates!

Can Toby run on my Win10 Tablet (or any other mobile tablets)?

Right now we are focused on developing Toby for desktop Chrome users. Any experiences outside of that scope will have substantial issues. Mobile will be on the to do list for 2017.
