We're thrilled to announce we’ve been named one of Google Chrome’s favorite extensions in 2023! To celebrate, we reflect on our favorite user reviews from the year.


What a year we’ve had together. As it comes to a close, I’m thrilled to announce we’ve been named one of Google Chrome’s favorite extensions in 2023!

This honor is a testament to our team's hard work and dedication, but most importantly, it reflects the MILLIONS of go-to people who use Scribe to do their best work. 

I often reflect back on the moment I knew Scribe would become something special. We were doing early customer research to validate Scribe was a helpful tool. I’ll never forget showing Scribe to a new client.

Her reaction?  “Where the h*ll was this last week when I spent half my week taking screenshots!?” 

I remember that conversation so vividly — not just because it proved we were on the right path, but because it was the first moment where I realized this tool could change people’s lives. 

Every time we get a new review on our Google Chrome listing, I get that same feeling. This award from Google is a testament to all 492 people (as of today) who have left reviews on our page. We wouldn’t be here without each of you!

Chrome's favorite extension: A year in reviews

If you’re new here, Scribe is an AI-powered tool that documents your processes for you. It turns any workflow into a visual, step-by-step guide. 

This milestone isn’t just an achievement for us. We share this success with every single one of the 800k people who have downloaded the Scribe extension and taken the time to share their experience with the world. 

From day one, our users have been an integral part of Scribe’s journey. We’re not just creating a tool; we’re crafting a movement of go-to people documenting and sharing what they know. Scribe is just a piece of software. Your expertise and knowledge are what really make all the difference.   

Your feedback has helped us shape Scribe into the tool we all love. We’re not kidding when we say that. Every time you leave a review — positive or negative — we post in Slack for all employees to read and discuss. Your reviews make us smile, inspire us to keep building and directly impact the product. I wanted to reflect on the Chrome Store reviews you left for us in the past year. 

Here are some of my favorites. 

Scribe has changed my life 

I can’t help but feel emotional when I read reviews like this. Knowing that Scribe means as much to you as it does to us is the WHY behind everything we do. As Chrome Store reviewer Morgan Waters says, “If you need to make a step-by-step guide to show ANYONE how to do ANYTHING, SCRIBE IS YOUR GO-TO!” 

Saving HOURS on training 

Shawna Gosney runs a team of service technicians and calls Scribe “amazing visual learning at its finest!” Now, she can spend less time running training sessions and answering repeat questions — and focus more on getting the work done. 

No more copy/pasting steps

Chrome Store user, “John In Dallas,” was used to doing things the old-fashioned way. But when he found Scribe, he quickly learned he could cut hour-long processes into just a few minutes. Here’s what he had to say.

The hardest working member of our team

As our own Marketing employees know, the work is never done! Ying, a Chrome store user in Marketing, says that using Scribe feels like adding a whole new team member. She loves it so much that she recommends we give our team members a well-deserved holiday. I’ll certainly keep that in mind. 😉

Never moving forward without it

Teams run on processes. Whether you’re creating or using a Scribe, you can save hours while doing your best work. According to Della Smith, it’s set her up for seamless handoffs and training. Looks like someone else is getting some well-deserved time off!

Conclusion: A Milestone Achieved Together

I can only end this blog in one way: with a resounding THANK YOU. Thank you for trying Scribe, sharing your feedback, joining our community, and shouting your love from the rooftops. 

And in 2024, we’re committed to continuing to build Scribe with the millions of go-to teams that got us here.
