  • (2023-09-20) Christoph Staack: Sieht ganz gut aus. Währe nur cool wenn man noch eine Seite wie z.B Google eingeben könnte und nicht nur eine Schwarze Seite hat. Daher leider nur 3 Sterne.
  • (2023-07-25) Andrew D.: Very nicely done.

  • (2023-05-06) Queixobatas Queixuda: Muito bom, janela limpa dando mais atenção para o papel de parede, se você quiser a opção de shortcuts no newtab não terá.

  • (2023-03-04) Harman Sidhu's Alt account: 6/5 stars, this extension made the google logo on the homepage basically gone same for the search bar but sometimes if you don't have any bookmarks and when you get this extension then get a bookmark its not like in homepage like thing area under the URL it's instead under the three dots and at bookmarks which i dont really mind. AND you can add audio/videos to it which is better than gifs. I would recommend this to the entire universe even aliens.

  • (2022-09-03) TJ Huntley: This is a 5 star app. One suggestion that would make this even better, if this was linked to Google Calendar and/or Google Tasks to show your appointments and/or to do list in a nice looking font, that would make it even more awesome. Great job on making this, it's very cool looking.
  • (2022-08-19) Gain M: great!
  • (2022-08-18) Thomas Anderson: Hello, It seems there's an issue with the addon lately, it keeps removing/deleting the image I use as default for a new tab and just leaves it blank. Reinstalling the addon didn't help, and most of the times I just have to re-add the image in the addon two times before it can actually load it. It seems it's encountering and error or some such issue. Any help would be appreciated.
  • (2022-08-13) ethen price: not sure how it works but it just makes my backround plain white with no text and the settings page replaces my cursor with a bunch of blue curves anyone got a fix?
  • (2022-07-15) M S: Oh! This extension is fantastic! No more cluttered background, and the extension's easy to use and I can change the image much as I want to. Yaaay to Clutter-Free life! Well done to you, developer/developers. Thank you.
  • (2022-06-19) Oli Vo: Extremely easy to use and it worked exactly like what i expected.
  • (2022-03-09) Yuseph Tohabath: Takes some time to learn how it works, but once you do it does a wonderful job with customization. If you like having widgets, this might not be for you, but if you want a simple color, image, video, etc. then this comes highly recommended.
  • (2022-03-09) Sam Williford: I do like the app and how simple it is to navigate, what I love is the option to make one myself, I have always been a little OCD .when it comes to aesthetics
  • (2022-03-02) KAILO: finally i can add Kpop wallpapers to my browser without icons getting in the way, 10/10

  • (2021-10-18) Caela Maris Asuncion /SleepyheadPrincess: i love it it was excellent and easy to use
  • (2021-10-13) Narimah SERAD: I didn't actually thought it'd be this great. I love how they allow you to put backgrounds as much as you want plus many more options. It's my first time giving feedback and ngl I had to bcs this is just too awesome:>> Thank you!<33
  • (2021-09-05) Squishy_ Thc: works amazing, does exactly as it says:)
  • (2021-08-30) Jim Obasa: Extension continually fails in the sense that when turning on the PC and logging in, what was saved in Clear New Tab has totally disappeared and has to be put back. Have had to do this literally a dozen times and so I am uninstalling "Clear New Tab"
  • (2021-08-19) Vesela Georgieva: Loads blank page with lots of options for the background. Unfortunately, cannot find how to set it up to use google theme backgrounds. Anyways, does a great job

  • (2019-05-14, v:5.2.4) Kathie Schmid: Leave Gmail/Images/My Apps/Profile icons in the top right?
    Hi, For Clear New Tab, is there a way to just remove the Google box (in the middle of the new-tab page), the word Google above the box, the Add-Shortcut circle (with the + in the middle of it), so that my image I've added is not obscured by all those, and yet still leave the Gmail/Images/My Apps/Profile icons in the top right of the page? Thanks!!!

  • (2018-06-07, v:3.6) Никита Осенний: Закладки
    Я использую панель закладок. но она у меня не закреплена. В итоге панель эта отображается только на новой вкладке, а на сайтах скрыта - меня это очень устраивает. Однако, если использовать расширение, то панель закладок не отображается на новой вкладке.
