Overview

Allows a user to provide the URL of the page that loads in a new tab.

Allows you to change the new tab page to the New Tab Redirect app page, or a custom URL of your choice! Choose from chrome's about pages, *NewTab, Extensions, Downloads, History*, a few popular URLs, or provide your own. Your custom tab can also be a local file, allowing you to create your own new tab page. Saving blank text will cause your new tab to be about:blank. Files can begin with: file:\\, file://, and file:/// Important: This is not meant to replace your homepage, only new tabs. If your browser is set to load the New Tab page as your homepage, there may be odd consequences. Note: Because this extension perform a "redirect", I have no control over address bar highlighting or focus. *********** Report Bugs *********** https://github.com/jimschubert/NewTab-Redirect/issues *********** Legal Stuff *********** I am not affiliated with Google or Google Chrome.

I've been using this for a long time and I really like it.... BUT... I wasted hours of messing around with why it wasn't working and realized that you need a full URL string in the setting like http://www.website.com instead of just www.website.com. Developer please fix this and either give warning or automatically fix the formatting. Thanks.

Installed it, it requested the manage apps permission, so uninstalled it and installed Custom New Tab URL instead.
