Image from store Home Button At Top Right
Description from store This extension will always be free and will never have ads. Once installed, a home button will appear at the top right of Chrome that initially redirects your current tab to google.com. Right-click the home button and choose Options to edit the home-page url. This extension only uses the tabs permission, so when you install, it will say that the extension can: "Access your tabs and browsing activity". This extension never monitors your activity. It only redirects your tabs. In response to Chrome's Feb 2014 removal of the flag that let you default your new tab to the Apps view, I've added a checkbox that lets you default the new tab to the Apps view. Right-click the home button and choose Options to edit this option. The source code is very simple and is posted online, so you can inspect it for yourself. http://holtstrom.com/michael/blog/post/412/Home-Button-At-Top-Right-Chrome-Extension.html
Latest reviews (2019-01-10) Thomas von der Elbe: Unfortunately a middle click doesn't work. On the original home button it does work. (2018-10-07) As much as I love this app, I am only using the Home Button to launch a new tab by pressing the middle mouse button on it. Well, with this Home Button, nothing happens when doing so. (2018-08-20) Shatari Ishatar: This should be the default. (2018-03-04) Rob Damiani: works great. does exactly as described. (2018-01-13) LickTheCheese: What is the point of this? now i have 2 home buttons :) (2017-12-10) Alex Musician: Everything's great! Thanks! (2017-10-30) Tor Swenson: thank you for creating this (2017-08-17) Darren Z: Ridiculous that we even need an extension like this -- why can't Google simply unlock the left-hand icons and let us put them where we want? -- but this seems to do the job. Set the address to "about:newtab" if you want it to show your most-used sites. A choice of icons would be nice, too, since the default icon all but disappears against a dark theme. (2017-06-19) Mariusz B.: You cannot click this button by the scroll and open new web page. Stupid. (2017-04-22) Alen Rissling: Can we have a choice of icons? Would prefer to have slightly wider icon instead. (2017-03-05) Alex Wildner: dont miss it (2016-11-21) Initaksa Mag: ★★★★ (2016-09-04) Does what it says (2016-06-03) ВАСЯ пупкин: Добавьте возможность смены фавикона на фавикон сайта и возможность выбора открывать в текущей и в новой вкладке. Спасибо. (2016-04-24) Bakar Eusoff: Perfect for me coz so used to have the home button... Thanks... (2015-12-18) Linux Mangaka: It's nice to have this icon with download icon & decorate it like firefox. But the ram consume is too absurd. (2015-02-28) Hammel Bach: Er tut das was er soll. :) (2014-02-21) William: It works- but slowed my ChromeBook down, completely! (2013-04-05) Aseya Darvishi: Erg handig.
