Incredible Startpage 1.4 is released

We have added another new function to Incredible Startpage. Now you will have 4 different notepads in different colors to help you to keep some short to-do lists or reminders easily. Simply click on the different color note to select the notepad. Enjoy!


Release notes for 1.4.0 &1.4.1:

  • New multi color notepads
  • Updated locales
  • Various bookmark issues
Release notes for 1.4.2:

  • "Bookmarks not ready" fully fixed (no additional tab open)
  • You may now have "empty" notepad if you leave the notepad blank
  • New version number added inside the theme options
Enjoy!

With this new update by bookmarks disappeared. This stinks. How do I get them back?

Sandy@visibo said...

@Joan: Chrome has issues when extension is updated. Please go to chrome://extensions and disable and enable Incredible Startpage. Open the new tab again and you can see your bookmarks.

Shu said...

no its not working ....
Uninstall / install worked but now I can't change the background image :(

Visibo said...

@Shu Yes you can, refer to this post http://goo.gl/p9mh1 on how to change the background image

Sh said...

I love the new update, but can you add a feature so that the color selection and gmail buttons will only be visible when the mouse is near the notepad?

Scott said...

I also do not see my bookmarks after the update to 1.4. The disable/enable did not resolve the issue. I really enjoy the Incredible Startpage and would love for my bookmarks to work again.

Scott said...

FYI, I uninstalled and re-installed the extension and the bookmarks display correctly now. I do not know if there is a more straight forward way of fixing this issue.

Joy Zheng said...

The my bookmarks tab works initially after reinstalling. However, once I click "show as main" on the other tab, the bookmarks disappear from the large panel and disabling/reenabling does not make them work again.

Visibo said...

@all: One easily method that does not require uninstalling is this one.

- Go to chrome://extensions, find Incredible Startpage, the click background.html

- A popup will appear, focus the console then press F5 to reload the extension

- Then reload your new tab. The notes and bookmarks should be there.


The problem is caused by Google not updating the extension properly. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do at the moment.
Hope it helps.

Shai said...

Both solutions you suggested didn't work for me. Un-installing and then re-installing the extension worked fine though.

Erno said...

What I really would like is that it would bring back the message 'Restore last session'. This works in Chrome without the Incredible Startpage. Why is it not possible with the Incredible Startpage?

renby said...

Thank you very much for notepad additions!!

Nickolus Roy said...

this start page is the f*ing greatest, thanks visibo!

RQuadling said...

My notepad is yellow and has the "Please click here ..." bit.

If I try clicking on the background.html, I don't get a popup. Instead I get the DevTools and an error in the console ...

Where can I post a picture of the error?

RQuadling said...

Here it is if you can decipher the wrapping ...

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'text' of undefined

reload Notenewpage-pop.js:52

(anonymous function) background.js:21

c.extend.each jquery-1.4.2.min.js:30

Notepad.updateAllViews background.js:21

onCreatedHandler background-sync.js:3

(anonymous function) background-sync.js:5

chromeHidden.handleResponse chrome/ExtensionProcessBindings:120

Visibo said...

@RQuadling The dev tools is the popup we are referring to, please press F5 in the console then you can reload the background. Hope it helps.

Bunnyslippers said...

First, not everyone who uses your product is on a PC. F5 doesn't work on a Mac. When providing key combinations, please give the Mac sequence as well.

Second, I managed to find a way to reload the console popup, and this is the message it gave:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'text' of undefined
reloadNote
(anonymous function)
c.extend.each
Notepad.updateAllViews
onCreatedHandler
(anonymous function)
chromeHidden.handleResponse

mdcmarkus said...

It seems to be working perfectly here. This extension is great! Thx!

mdcmarkus said...

Btw, it takes less than a second for the bookmarks under the "My Bookmarks" tab to load. So I see no problem

Bunnyslippers said...

The update works fine on one of my Macs, but not on the other. The bookmarks are showing up, finally, but my notepad still does not work in other colors and the "Please click here to enable new notepad" message is still showing.

Tara said...

fantastic, thanks guys:)

xeeker said...

ok i really like this app but there is 1 thing i would like to see and i dont get how u guys missed it....why didnt you include a folder for most visited website and if we can customize our own folders then that would be really awesome

Christopher Rodman said...

My notes always say the default text:

Thank you for installing
Incredible StartPage!

This is your own notepad. You can take note here!


How do I get these cleared. Once I clear the text it comes back.

Visibo said...

@Christopher Rodman Please enter some note (or your favorite quote?) in the notepad. If the notepad is empty, it will always show the default text. Hope it helps.

Pasi Nieminen said...

It would be nice to be able to enter an empty note too, because if I remove a note that I have written because that note isn't needed anymore, it would be easier to write a new note the next time if it would stay empty.

Christopher Rodman said...

Yeah...I think the notepad needs to stay empty at all times unless you add text yourself. It's a pain to have to delete the text each time you need to use a note.

blakesteel said...

I agree, if I empty the note it should stay empty. Nothing is something too.

Mad Ranter said...

request: Square up the notepad for cleaner edges; Or an option to hide the notepad.

BEARCATJER said...

how do i delete specific bookmarks or google apps from showing up in my "my bookmarks" or "my apps" sections on the desktop? thank you very much.

Visibo said...

@ BEARCATJER Please refer to this post http://goo.gl/p9mh1

JoeFlash said...

Great extension except for the annoying habit of adding those 'Incredible Startpage Options' bookmarks to the Other Bookmarks list every time you start the browser. And it adds the stupid bookmark for every computer you have used, multiple bookmarks to the same page.

Metal said...

Very nice extension and I have been using it for a long time. But recently, scrolling does not work anymore when I try to scroll through my bookmarks in the Closed, Bookmarks and My Bookmarks section. I can scroll by clicking and dragging the side bar but it does not work (suddenly) with the two finger touch scrolling function on my Mac.
This bug started to occur recently. Before, it was fine. It happend after Chrome updated itself yesterday. :(

Visibo said...

@Metal This bug is introduced by the latest Chrome update. We have reported the bug to Chrome team and hope it will be fixed soon.
