Good news everyone!

Google has updated their native comment browser feature, and it's much better.

They've implemented roughly all the features of the Comment Helper extension. So, Comment Helper can now enjoy a happy retirement.

Here's a 1.5 minute walk-through of the native Google Docs comment browser:

Thanks to everyone who shared feedback and encouragement on Comment Helper over the years.

Save an hour each week, and make better contributions

If you spend 20 hours / week in Google Docs, and Comment Helper speeds you up 5%, you'll save about an hour per week.

Perhaps more importantly: the lower friction will help you make better contributions to the discussion, and stop missing valuable input from your collaborators.

Have fun!

Privacy & security

Comment Helper is suitable for use with your most sensitive documents.

The extension does not require API access to your Google Drive, and it is compatible with Google's Advanced Protection Program.

The extension runs locally on your computer when you open a Google Doc. It never sends data from your documents or comments to a remote server.
