Overview

Simply set the URL you want new tabs to load and it'll load it. No fluff.

Very similar to other "New Tab URL" redirect extensions but this one is stripped down to the bare essentials. There are 4 options available: - URL you want the new tab URL to be - whether you want the URL to be auto-highlighted/selected on new tab page load (or if you want the focus on new tab load to be on your page) - whether you wish to enable a light mode theme (it currently defaults to a dark theme) - whether chrome should sync this setting Note: If your new tab url is a local file (i.e. it starts with "file://" rather than "http://") then you will have to enable the "Allow access to file URLs" permission for this extension on the Manage Extensions page.

Only used it for a few minutes, so I can't speak to it's reliability - but it's the only "new tab" that defaults to dark FIRST, before loading the page - this stops that 'white flicker' you see whenever opening a new tab with other new-tab-url solutions (smart move!) and gives a control to toggle that to light if needed (great / simple solution - a follow OS setting or follow Chrome setting might be a nice addition on first glance). Anyhow - so far, light weight, does what I want, should be ... Show more
