About the Developer
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.
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. Translations can be submitted using Weblate, a free and open source translation web application.
