Dark New Tab - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


Open a blank dark or white tab rather than the default browser's new tab page.

Dark New Tab, is a simple and very lite extension that enables you to open a new tab, completely empty with just a dark or white background color and three buttons at the top-left corner of the screen. The default browser tab is usually packed with lots of items such as tiles, bookmarks, search-field, etc. If you prefer to have a simple and clean new tab, this add-on works just great for you. Simply add it to your browser and it works instantly. Just click on the new tab button on your browser and it opens a blank tab instead of the default one. The default background color for the new tab is dark. If you prefer a white background color please press the - moon - button at the top-left corner of the screen (1st button from top). This toggle button will switch the background color, and stores the state in the memory. The second button is for the support page. If you have a feature request or found a bug to report, please press this button to open the support page. The last button is for making donations.

(Also like that reviewer, I have no connection to either extension; my motivation in posting this is solely and wholly the repulsion felt from this endless plague of monetized simple extensions.) So what's the problem with this extension? Not much -- it works fine, actually... Show more
