If the Chrome Extensions Page Is Down for Updates… Manually Install!
Sometimes we have to re-submit our plugin updates to Google for review to get published, and they take down our old extensions page for up to a week while they review our code.
If this is the case, you can still easily manually install in just a couple minutes or less. See the instructions here:
Once Installed, Notice the Ads Removed and Layouts Fixed
Once you have Smuuvr running in your browser, compatible websites like YouTube will have ads removed from pages, layouts fixed (full wide screen), and the Smuuvr toolbar is on the right with any number of features, depending on what site you’re on.
Smuuvr “S” Badge
You may also notice a small purple badge on some site logos or in the top corner of the site. This is a small clickable button to pop the toolar out onto the page if clicked, or hover over it to see how many upgrades were applied to the page.
Enable for Incognito Windows
If you want to use Smuuvr on Incognito windows in Chrome, see the instructions on this page.
Once you’re in an incognito window, you can see if the logo is in the top right add-ons icon bar, it will be an “S”.
Open an Incognito Window:
On Dekstop, press (CTRL+SHIFT+N) (may be Command+Shift+N on Mac) and then check if the Smuuvr “S” logo is in the top right of your browser.
Once enabled, you can visit any supported website, like YouTube, and look on the right-side of the window for the small grey toolbar peaking out – that’s the Smuuvr Toolbar.
Move your mouse over it (or touch it), and it will slide out from the edge and show what buttons are available for the page. Different buttons may show depending on what is supported for each website you’re on.
Press [x] in it to remove the toolbar from the current page.
At the bottom of the Smuuvr toolbar, it will say what version of Smuuvr is running, like “Smuuvr 1.5.5”. Be sure you’re on at least version 1.8.0 or higher, as major improvements were released with 1.8.
Check your current Smuuvr version and be sure to stay up to date for the lastest fixes, features, and add ons!
