      This is planned for the next release.

      I’m going to try to include 3 modes on it (timer/alarm, stopwatch and a general counter) and support for multiple timers/counters per widget like on the weather widget.

      However, iChrome is on hold at the moment so I won’t be starting work on the next release for a little while.

      Thank you for your patience,

        This has received a good amount of interest. I’m busy for the next 3-4 weeks but when I start working on iChrome actively again, I’ll be working through open ideas including this one and hopefully getting them added!

              I planned on adding this in the version after next, but wanted to create a public idea so the community can vote for it and give suggestions.

              I plan on including it as local-only snapshots from the past 3 days that can be restored from the Advanced tab in the settings.

              The backups would be created once a day the first time you load the page before anything is synced. This way you’d have this mornings backup before anything was changed, yesterdays and the day before’s.

            • More reliable syncing method

              Summary: The existing syncing method isn't reliable and configurations get lost. This idea is for an alternative method that would store your data on iChrome servers instead of Google's system.

              This idea is intended to help gather feedback on the move to iChrome servers.

              The system would work based off of an automatically generated ID synced using Google's existing system. The ID would essentially be a password since it would be used to read and write your configuration and synced data.

              I've also been considering the possibility of identifying users based on the accounts they're signed into in Chrome. This…

                I’ve picked method #1 and edited the idea accordingly. Please comment with your opinions on the account detection method and security.

                This is a major shift and I’d like to proceed carefully with as much feedback as possible.

              • Permissions

                iChrome seems to ask for a lot of permissions. Why does it need all of them?

                Right now it's asking for permission to:
                - Access your data on all sites
                - Read and modify your browsing history
                - Manage your apps, extensions and themes

                  Since this is ongoing I’m marking this issue as “Started” so it stays visible.

                  UPDATE: iChrome’s permissions have been gradually changing with a major shift in the next release. I’ve been working on eliminating required permissions and have gotten them down to one:

                  Read and modify all your data on all websites you visit.

                  This just means that the extension is allowed to load data from any domain. It’s used to load things like RSS feeds from websites and pull data in for most widgets.

                  You can see exactly how all data is loaded and used by looking at iChrome’s source on Github here: https://www.github.com/AMKohn/iChrome

                    I don’t quite understand what you’re asking for with the Google maps widget. Are you looking for a directions widget?

                    I’m splitting your multiple RSS feeds comment into and idea of its own so it can be voted for separately.

                        I assume by Chrome notifications you mean the contents of the notification center. I don’t think that’s possible using the current APIs.

                        However Pushbullet looks really cool and sounds like it would make a great addition! I’m going to edit this idea accordingly.

                          And also try to follow material design guidelines for existing widgets. Which goes nice with whole google design thing.

                            I’ve actually seen the extension and considered redesigning it since the layout is much more compact and easier to scan, but I have so much on my plate at the moment that I simply don’t have time.

                            If this gets sufficient interest I’ll try to squeeze it in, but I’m not sure when I’ll be able to do it.

                              I’ve been considering this for a while, but simply haven’t had time to do it.

                              A big issue with this is that the data doesn’t exist as part of the theme, so this might have to wait until I possibly rework themes. If that’s going to happen it only will after I have a proper server up and move things like random image picking there.
