Microsoft Edge on Chrome - allow sync across OneDrive

Jim0206 1 year ago updated 2 months ago 2

Now that Microsoft Edge is being developed using the chromium engine and it can use Chrome extensions, please can Tabs Outliner support it?

I have installed Tabs Outliner in 'Edge dev', and it seems to be excellent, considering the limitations of chromium in that it will not allow the Tabs Outliner window to be permanently there within the window, like Firefox allows with similar extensions. 

I've recently got a new laptop so am looking at ways that I can work across both desktop and laptop without losing productivity.  Tabs Outliner seems to be an excellent option, and if I can get this sorted then a paid upgrade is a definite.

Regrettably, it does not let me save backups to the google drive, because it is Edge dev not Google Chrome, and I'm logged in to my OneDrive account, not my Google account.  I use Edge for different things than Google Chrome.

I am also now planning to use it in Google Chrome, and in that, Tabs Outliner runs separate from the instance in Edge beta, and happily allows me to select my google account to backup to.

I'd be in favor of any sync even google drive sync working within edge. The problem is that edge doesn't know my google account and as a result the cloud saving/syncing feature outright doesn't work within Edge.

The saddest thing is that shortly after my OP, an update to Edge broke tabs outliner paid for status, and since then despite having paid, I can only use the free version in Edge. Emails sent were unanswered. Other users reckon that because it was chromium, tough. I was lucky to have it work at all. I've got the paid for Chrome version which works great, even if it keeps forgetting I'm a paid up user. 


As the developer seems to have abandoned the project (again, shortly after I had paid} , and it is not open source, there is no hope of any improvement from what we've got now. Unless of course someone re-engineers it, which is far far beyond my abilities.
