Really like this News Tab extension. I can finally pick my own news websites and no longer have to look at unrelated ads! Can't wait to see what other improvements are made. Great Job!

Good, simple, effective new tab screen. Much better than the default and at least my page isn't polluted by ads like with Microsofts offering :D I'd like to be able to change the background colour though ;)

Hi John, Thanks for the feedback! I have added a background colour changer task to my issue tracking, https://github.com/jcbjoe/TheNewsTab/issues/9. It should be implemented in the coming days/weeks. Thanks! Joe
