About the Developer and Development

Renewed Tab was created and developed by Andrew "rubenwardy" Ward, a software engineer from Bristol UK.

rubenwardy created Renewed Tab after being disappointed with the existing options. They either had a bad user experience, none of the features he wanted, or they locked basic features behind a paywall. See features for a list of key features. Read the blog post to find out more.

Renewed Tab was released as free and open source software under the GPLv3 license, allowing anyone to see its code, contribute to it, and create their own versions.

Development is done publicly on GitLab, with the roadmap fully visible. Whilst the development is primarily done on GitLab, contributors can also submit issues and patches using GitHub or by contacting rubenwardy.

Renewed Tab supports French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Portuguese, Malay, and Turkish (Français, Español, Deutsch, Italiano, Русский, 汉语, Português, Bahasa Melayu, and Türkçe). Translations are contributed by users, using our Weblate instance.
