New Tab Redirect

Description from extension meta Allows a user to provide the URL of the page that loads in a new tab.
Image from store New Tab Redirect
Description from store 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.

Latest reviews (2019-11-14) Sepehr Lajevardi: I really appreciate the cursor remaining in the address bar. However, the white flash is really annoying when using a dark theme in the night. (2019-10-25) Dypsis: I have noticed a small problem with it recently. I can't get it to focus on the new tab page. It focuses on the Address Bar no matter what setting I use. I use Google as my new tab page, but It always focuses on the Address Bar instead of the Google search field. (2019-10-25) Zhitfräm Zhinolŭ: Perfectly simple. I just wanted the new tab to open my preferred search engine; this extension accomplished that. And if you're looking for a DARK THEMED search, check out the customization available with Startpage. (2019-10-20) Koto Blokong: im lucky dude!!!!!!! (2019-10-19) Dani Laur B: In latest chanary build vers.80 not work search to stop the URL bar from showing Google searches instead of actual websites !!! please fix !!! (2019-10-19) Ziella Seblast: Dis gonna be good! (2019-10-04) Patrick Hwung: Does what it says so 5 stars. (2019-09-08) Maciek Drzazga: Przydatne :) (2019-08-27) אביב משולם: stopped working google chrome latest version (2019-08-27) Chris Crowley: Does exactly what I want it to do. (2019-08-18) Erik Paz: Muy buena la verdad me encanto, me ahorra mucho tiempo 100 de 10 (2019-08-16) Stefan Spill: Eigentlich ging das doch bis vor kurzem standardmäßig in Chrome, nein? Auf jeden Fall fand ich gerade keine Möglichkeit diesen gewohnten Zustand wieder herzustellen und nachdem ich Google für seine Update-Vorgehensweise verflucht habe, hat mich das Internet zu diesem Addon gebracht. Jetzt funktioniert mein Chrome wieder so, wie ich es seit Monaten gewohnt bin. Dafür lieber Addon-Programmier, bin ich dir seeeehr dankbar *bows*. UI könnte etwas schicker aussehen, daher nur 4 Sterne, aber das ist Genöle auf überzogenem Niveau. (2019-08-02) Juan Luis: Lo único que me gustaría es que permitiera poner una imagen de mi preferencia, aún así excelente. (2019-07-31) Kevin V: Using this extension to override a company-managed policy to direct each new tab to its homepage. Works perfectly. (2019-07-17) Kyle: I really liked this extension and it worked great, but it keeps breaking and needing repairs but if I don't repair it fixes itself and then it'll break again sometime after. I tried uninstalling and installing a new version and it still did that. I've never had trouble with and I had it for months. (2019-07-16) Mark: Would get 5 stars if it worked with new URLs. It says it saves the new URL, but still takes me to the previous URL. Uninstalling and reinstalling the extension does not get rid of this persistent storage of the old URL. This on Chrome Version 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (64-bit), with version 3.1.5 of the extension. (2019-07-07) Rajender Kumar: I have found this extension as the best utility designed for chrome. I have never liked google chrome showing me a google search bar on the new page/home page, also worst part is shows others my browsing history along. Since ever I got this extension I have got rid of all that nuisance, and this is serving since the past 8 years (2019-06-24) Sumit Pandey: WORKING! Thanks! (2019-06-23) Manu Ziux: La utilizo desde hace años, nunca me fallo :D (2019-06-13) Steven: Works very well on my Windows 10 PC. Does not work at all on my Chromebook. (2019-06-08) nameless void: the only extension i could find with an appropriate level of privacy protection and simplicity (2019-05-29) Sanjay Maru: does what it supposed to do. nothing else to add. perfect (2019-05-27) Boyd: I've been using this extension for I don't know how many years and it's perfect. It does, and has always done, exactly what I need it to do. This is the first thing I load onto any new computer, personal or work. I rarely donate to extensions but this one is really worth it. (2019-05-25) 로제: 좋아요 (2019-05-12) 蔡磊: is so simpify,i like it.

(2013-10-17, v:2.0) A. Murat Eren: select all
when a new tab opens, I would like to start typing the address I'd like to go. if Tab Direct "selects all" the content of address bar, I wouldn't have to do it myself every time. Now: Ctrl+T (new tab opens) Ctrl+A (select the address) start typing. What I want: Ctrl+T (new tab opens) start typing. Thanks,
