➤ What is OpenTabs?
OpenTabs is a non-profit startup aiming to fight poverty and climate change in innovative ways. Our mission is to be the most affordable and convenient way of having an impact. For this reason, we created a free web browser extension that allows you to passively raise funds towards providing microloans and saving rainforests simply by opening new tabs.
Just think of how many tabs you open, and now imagine changing the world by doing just that. Download OpenTabs and start making an impact with no additional effort. Changing the world has never been easier.
➤ How Does it Work?
Our idea is so simple that you are bound to fall in love with it. Our extension replaces your default new tab page and includes cool features such as an improved layout and stunning background pictures. We place a couple banner advertisements in the corner and raise about 1/10 of a cent per tab. Although small, just think of how many tabs you open in a day, month, or year, and multiply that by everyone that has a browser! We're not joking when we say that making an impact has never been easier.
10 Tabs Opened = 1 Tree Saved
➤ Your privacy and trust matters
OpenTabs is committed to protecting your privacy and using your data responsibly. We're interested in making an impact, not your data: we don’t save your searches, we don’t track the websites you visit, and we don’t sell your data. We also understand that trust has to be earned, which is why we publish our financial reports on our website and as a not-for-profit, our main focus is maximising our impact.

➤ Saving Rainforests
Rainforests are the lungs of the Earth, they absorb 30% of our carbon emissions and are home to 90% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. But each day, nearly 70,000 acres are lost from agricultural development and logging, threatening countless species with extinction. Tropical deforestation accounts for up to 15% of net global carbon emissions each year. This is equivalent to every car, truck, bus, plane ship and train on the planet combined.
We are partnering with Rainforest Trust to protect our rainforests, help prevent deforestation and decrease global emissions. By simply opening tabs, you can help raise funds to save rainforests and fight climate change. Halting tropical deforestation and allowing for regrowth could mitigate up to 50% of net global emissions through 2050. We must act now.
➤ Providing Microloans
Worldwide, a staggering 1.7 billion adults are unbanked, with a disproportionate 56% of whom are women in developing countries. Through platforms such as Kiva, we provide microloans as small as $25 (typically lasting 8-18 months and receiving no interest) to help individuals break from the poverty trap. Microloans are essential in helping the financially excluded to start and grow their businesses (be it a shop or a farm for example) or improve their living conditions (by building a sanitary toilet or a solar powered stove for example).
Microloans are a helping hand in empowering struggling individuals to create new opportunities for themselves as well as their families and communities. They are a very sustainable form of aid because once repaid, they can be loaned out countless of times and have an immense ripple effect. By opening tabs, you can now raise funds towards providing microloans and lifting families out of poverty.
Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
