Redirects your 'new tab' to an external website.

A basic extension to redirect the 'New Tab' to an external site of your choosing. Make sure you keep seeing your notes or important info when you're browsing. A minimal extension; no background scripts or unnecessary permissions. For issues and suggestions open a github issue. Backend Description: The extension implements a temporary 'New Tab Page' that when loaded, immediately queries the extension storage for your set redirect page, and then proceeds to redirect. Removed any background scripts so that it only runs when you initiate it.

Awesome! I hate to admit it but I spent a lot of time investigating extensions that redirect new tabs. I choose this one for two reasons: 1) Very simple without the fluff of other tab redirect extensions, 2) when it redirects it focusses attention on the URL bar so you can quickly go to another website. Most other redirectors do not do that.
