I modified the code to support using the chrome://newtab page as the startup page

With the current Fast New Tab Redirect v1.4, setting the Chrome startup page to chrome://newtab results in a blank page. I have modified your extension to fix that issue. Here is the new code:

Now, I can set my home button, startup page, and new tab page all to chrome://newtab and use Fast New Tab Redirect without issue.

Open Chrome Apps Page

Hi, is it possible to allow us to open the chrome apps page (chrome://apps/) with this extension?
So far when I try this, it does not work.

Focus on page instead of addressbar

Unlike the 'New Tab Redirect' extension, this 'Fast' version does not focus on the content of the new tab, after loading, but on the addressbar. This is why I switched back to the 'slow' version. Perhaps you can make a toggle for different type of behaviour.

Doesn't work with files?

In the interest of the fastest page possible I wanted to load a custom page like file:///Users/usernamey/whatever/index.html - doesn't seem to be working though. Is this possible?

Can Chrome focus on the new page after opening new tab?

Can Chrome focus on the new page after opening new tab?
When I open new tab, the browser focus on the url bar. I can't use the plug-in, vimium on new tab. Or, can I customize it?
