Pastel new tab – now with your top websites

Pastel new tab, with clock and top websites

Your most often visited websites can now be added to the pastel new tab page. Just like in the default new tab page, but cleaner.

The websites are visible in simple, discreet boxes at the bottom of the screen. The websites can be toggled off, or on, easily from controls at bottom of the screen.

Please note that the website links are disabled by default. The first time you enabled them, Chrome will request you to grant the extension permission to access your top websites.

Without this permission, the extension cannot display these links. However, rest of the new tab page works just like earlier even without this permission.

AR\ Instapaper – Search articles in all folders

Accelereader for Instapaper - Search in all folders
Accelereader for Instapaper – Search in all folders

 

The article search in Accelereader popup now lists matching articles in all1 your folders, and not just the Home folder.

The extension still shows top 20 articles from your home folder by default. However, when searching for something, it looks through all your folders, and lists matching articles by recency.

When searching across all folders, the name of folder is displayed under the article’s title, after the website name.

Other minor updates

When an article is removed from the list on Instapaper.com (archived / moved / deleted), the focus automatically moves to next article in the list.

Fixed some other bugs, and minor background improvements.

Todo.txt for Chrome – Support for threshold dates

ver. 2017.1025.5.4

Threshold dates

Todo.txt for Chrome now automatically parses the threshold dates, and hides task with dates in the future.

Threshold dates are read in the ‘t:yyyy-mm-dd‘ format. ‘today‘, ‘tomorrow‘ and ‘yesterday‘ may also be used in place of date string.

To see all tasks, including those in the future, add ‘t:all‘ to the filter field.

Filter overdue tasks

Use ‘due:overdue‘ to see all tasks that are past their due date.

This also works in combination with other operators. E.g ‘-due:overdue‘ shows tasks that are not over due, and ‘(A) due:overdue‘ only shows high priority tasks that are overdue.

The full list of filter operators is available here.

Minor updates & bug fixes

  1. Update: Saving a filter with the same name as an existing filter, replaces the existing filter. The app asks for confirmation before replacing.
  2. Bug fix: +Projects (sometimes @contexts or #tags) were getting appended to some tasks as ‘due:+project‘. Fixed.
  3. Bug fix: Input in filter field was delayed by a key until enter or escape were pressed. Fixed.
