A small update

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here, but I am still updating the extension every so often when I spot a bug or when 23andMe change something.

I’ve made some minor changes today to fix some bugs, so the current version is 2.1.6.1 (I missed something in 2.1.6 so… 2.1.6.1).

The previous issues with the Chrome webstore appear to be resolved for good, so the extension should be available from there via the download page for the foreseeable future.

As of today the extension has 1,720 users according to Google, which is more than double the number it had a year ago. If you haven’t already, please rate the extension in the Chrome web store.

    Thanks for the extension! It’s so much easier on the eyes to be able to set a background color other than white, and changing the small light gray text to black is helpful, too.

    Here are a couple of ideas for Family Finder in a future release:
    Putting the last common ancestor dates in a separate column (there’s plenty of room) would both make the dates easier to read, and not use up so much vertical space.
    Currently, for public matches, there’s a link to send a message, but no indication whether the user has actually sent one and the recipient simply didn’t reply. It would be useful to be able to tell that without slogging through all of one’s sent e-mails.
    One last thought just occurred to me; I don’t know if it’s possible, but it would be great to be able to filter the Relative Finder results to include just those with matching surnames.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the extension! It really helps.

    One thing that persists is the incorrect notation in DNAR that “Introduction Sent 4 days ago” when it was sent months ago. Just an example. “13 hours ago”, “16 hours ago”.

    I have no idea what the problem might be but I have seen this behavior for a long, long time.

    Anyway, free software is good. Can’t complain.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    I upgraded to the Chrome 64 bit Beta Version and lost the use of the 23andMe extension.

      OK… you’ll probably have to ask Google about that, there’s no reason the extension shouldn’t work in 64-bit Chrome.
