Since the 2017.2.12.0 update, Sidewise will no longer start in any browser on any of my computers. It doesn't matter whether the OS is Windows 7 or 10. The options page is blank. Isn't anyone else having this problem? I have no access to my tabs, which I heavily depend on. It's urgent that this problem be fixed.

Thanks flynn for posting the appropriate fix of updating your Chrome to the current released version.


I did not see this bug report until today; apologies for the late response.

It looks like there is a way to specify "minimum Chrome version" for the extension which I was not aware of. I'll be sure to set that appropriately for future releases.

Also not working for me. Tried reinstalling, but that did not help either.

Would've been nice if the developer had made some attempt to help, but I found the solution. Had to update my browsers (Chrome derivatives) to latest version. I never had to do this before, neither is it mentioned anywhere that I have seen that this might be necessary after an update. Hope this helps others who have the same problem.

Thank you very much for posting the work-around. I figured there must be some thing particular to my setup, since not too many people have complained about this. Also really appreciate that the developer gives us something quite useful, and for free :)

Free, although donations are accepted. I have donated to this app's development.

Thank you for looking into this. I guess people who had Chrome update automatically didn't have this problem. I've liked Sidewise since I started using it, but being without it for even a short time has made me realize just how much I depend on it. So my thanks also for creating such a useful extension.
