A minimalistic grey new tab page for Google Chrome. No external network requests. No analytics. No tracking. No bullshit.

What? A minimalistic new tab page replacement for Chrome. This empty new tab page fades from black to dark grey; easy on your eyes. Why? 1. Default Chrome new tab page makes network requests and show thumbnail images of previously visited sites 2. Dark New Tab requires minimal system resources; everything is contained in a single HTML file; not a line of JavaScript is loaded and is lightning fast 3. Dark New Tab doesn't blind you with a white page; the background fades from black to a gentle grey 4. I wanted to minimize distractions 5. I want to use Dark New Tab across all my devices 🙂 Pairing Suggestion: Dark New Tab goes well with most dark themes, including "Just Black" dark theme from The Chrome team (Google). https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/just-black/aghfnjkcakhmadgdomlmlhhaocbkloab Source Code: https://github.com/dandydanny/darknewtab

Thank you for not making the new tab page "completely empty with nothing on it at all except for buttons which let you send the creator money", unlike a certain other extension.

Can the fade be disabled? I just want a simple black blank page - no fade, no blinding white flash like with redirects i've tried.
