Image from store Home - New Tab Page
Description from store This extension replaces your New Tab page with a customized dashboard. Your new beautiful Home will show favorite sites, notifications from various services, quick notes, weather and more. Stay connected with Home. Make it personal. Get inspired. *NEW*: much much much improved speed *NEW*: change search engine *NEW*: hide any element you want (buttons, weather, clock, etc) Notifications and unread badges: - Gmail - Google Calendar - Yahoo! Mail - Outlook (Hotmail) - Facebook messages (see more info below) More features: - Built-in beautiful background gallery - Upload custom background (tile, stretch) - Add favorite sites, arrange them on multiple pages - Notes - Quick Search - Weather, you asked for it :) - Focus mode for clean look - Recently closed tabs - Right-click app menu (options, remove) - Export & Import your apps to a new computer easily -- Sites (Apps) -- Home New Tab Page is a New Tab page replacement extension for Google Chrome. It gives you a productive dashboard that you can use to organize your browsing. Add your favorite websites (called apps) to the new tab grid of icons. You can choose from a built in gallery of apps by searching their names, also you can add any website by entering its url and specifying its icon by a link to the image, or uploading one from your computer. Home also lists your Chrome apps (mostly useful for Chrome OS users) as part of the grid. You can hide these Chrome apps, if you like. Right clicking any icon gives you the ability to open them in a new tab or remove them from the grid. A simply left click opens the icon's website in the current tab. To reorder the application grid, simply drag one icon and move it to its new position. -- Notifications -- A couple services (Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Outlook Mail, Facebook Messages) are checked regularly and if a new notification is found, a red badge will appear at the top right corner of the app's icon. This badge will show the number of unread messages for the given service. Navigating to one of those sites and reading the messages will make the badge go away (or if you only read some of the messages, and leave others unread, the count will update to how many messages are left unread). Please note that it takes some time (several minutes) for the count to update. You can manage the general fetch interval and turn off notifications for each service inside Settings. There is also a Notification panel located on the bottom left corner (Bell icon). Clicking the Notifications icon will open the panel where you can see the 10 latest notifications in detail. These notifications contain a link, which you can use to navigate to the specific source. For example incoming Gmail messages or Facebook messages link to the individual message thread. In order to receive notifications, you have to be logged into those services inside your Chrome browser. You can simply navigate to their website and check if you're logged in. There is a button to Clear all notifications from the panel, if you'd like to keep it clean. -- Quick Notes -- The left toolbar has a Quick Notes icon. Clicking it brings up the panel where you can type in any notes you'd like. You also have the ability to format the notes and paste any HTML formatted text into there. The Quick Notes and Notifications panels can be pinned to the Home dashboard, which makes them always visible and available at a glance. -- Weather -- The left toolbar also has a Weather widget which always shows the current weather. The location is automatically determined using your IP address. You have the ability to change it to any custom location as well. Hovering your mouse over the Weather icon will bring up the Weather panel. Here you can change the units of measurement from Imperial to Metric (F to C, inch to mm, etc.) The panel shows a 5 day forecast as well as a detailed view of today's weather. The humidity, UV level, wind speed and expected rain volume are all listed based on the current conditions. The 5 day forecast also shows nice icons to visualize the weather states like rainy, cloud, partly cloudy, windy, clear etc. To set a custom weather location, you simply click the city name at the top of the panel and enter your desired city name. It'll search the database of locations and you can select the one you'd like. To switch between Custom or Auto weather location, use the Location icon at the top left of the panel. -- Bookmarks -- The left toolbar also has a Bookmarks icon. Clicking it brings up the Bookmarks panel. Your favorite sites will be listed here in a tree view, where you can expand folders to get to individual bookmark items. These bookmarks will have their favicons listed next to the website's name. Hovering over any link will show the url at the top left corner of your browser. Left clicking will navigate to the specific link in the current tab. You have the ability to search your bookmarks by clicking the top Bookmarks title of the panel and entering your search term. -- Focus -- The focus mode icon is located near the bottom of the left toolbar. It switches the look and feel of your Home New Tab to a completely streamlined and clean state. Your clock and date will show in big bold letters at the center of your screen and you have the ability to type in a one-liner daily focus. This focus goal will show for every new tab you open. Your apps are still available from the left toolbar via an Apps icon. But they will no longer clutter your new tab so you can focus on that One important goal for the day! -- Search -- Your Home New Tab Page features a quick and easy search box to navigate to websites that are not listed on your dashboard. The default search partner is Yahoo but you can always change the provider by clicking the icon left to the search box. This will bring up a list of providers to choose from (Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, DuckDuckGo, etc). This extension has search partners to support its development. If you don't wish to use search at all, you can hide the search box inside Settings. Home also has the ability to index your history for quick navigation to visited sites through the search box. After you install the add-on you will be asked if you'd like this feature to be turned on or not. The search box shows suggestions based on what you entered. -- Beautiful Backgrounds -- The very bottom of your left toolbar shows the Backgrounds icon. Clicking this icon will bring up the Backgrounds panel. From here you can select a wallpaper that you like. Home has a built-in gallery for this purpose. The Home daily backgrounds option gives you the ability to receive a wallpaper from the Home team *everyday (it's not guaranteed to be refreshed everyday, but we're doing our best ;). -- Settings -- The most important icon on the left toolbar is the Settings. Here you can set general preferences like Time format, Temperature for weather, how often to check services for notifications and where to open your sites when you left click them on the grid (Current tab, New active tab, New background tab). You can also set a custom wallpaper here from your computer, and set wallpaper effects for a total customization (stretch, tile, fill). Settings also allows you to make a backup from your home settings and apps to a file that you can use to make sure your data never gets lost. You can also bring this file to a new computer, go to settings, hit import, and have your apps and settings ready to go. There is also a daily automatic backup that happens the first time you open your browser on a given day. So in case you did a change you don't know how to undo, simply restore from this Automatic backup the same day. You can set the visibility of almost all elements on your Home new tab inside settings including left toolbar buttons, the date & time, search bar etc. You can also change which notification services you'd like to enabled. All changes made inside Settings are saved automatically. There is no need to hit any save button! -- Help -- You can see the answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions if you click the Help button on the top right of your Home New Tab. Here you can see how to change your wallpaper, how to set Home as your homepage not just your New Tab, how to edit or remove apps, etc. -- Uninstall -- To revert back to the default Google Chrome new tab, simply uninstall this extension visiting the following url: chrome://extensions/?id=ehhkfhegcenpfoanmgfpfhnmdmflkbgk Then disable the extension (top right) or Remove with the link at the bottom of that page. -- Support -- For further support click on the Support tab on this page.

  • (2023-10-25) Evan: So far, really good
  • (2023-10-24) Sherry Lynn Madcat: This program helps me a lot. My memory is not good so seeing my appointments come up on the screen helps me with whatever I am supposed to be doing. It is easy to use and easy to move everything about to where you need the apps to be. I just have to figure out how to name or number each page of icons. I recommend this app as it is very helpful.
  • (2023-10-17) Castle Odinland: 非常好看,但有个建议:请不要将图标跟随着浏览器的窗口的大小一起缩放,有时候图标会缩得挤在一起看不清。
  • (2023-10-01) Rana Rabees: Loved it it's been a great addition to my browsing experience. However, I have a small suggestion that I believe would improve its usability for many users. Currently, the default search engine in the extension is set to Yahoo. While Yahoo is a popular search engine, some users, including myself, prefer using Google for their searches. Therefore, I kindly request that you consider implementing a feature that allows users to change the default search engine from Yahoo to Google or provide a setting where users can select their preferred search engine. Thank you for taking the time to consider my suggestion. I look forward to any updates or changes you make to the extension in the future.
  • (2023-08-29) Eddy: The enjoyment I have gotten from this extension is a lot. It makes things much easier.
  • (2023-08-15) Nadia Havlicek: Honestly, I would've kept it. But the icons are so big it bugs me and you can't change their size. Also, they are kinda low quality and I don't like that. I really like the focus thing and that you can take notes but oh well.
  • (2023-07-19) Brian Prager bwprager123: This was a good solution to making Chrome more useful. However, today the extension hijacked the browser by imposing an overlay on every new tab that reads: "YOUR SEARCHBAR GOT SMARTER. IT REQUIRES HISTORY PERMISSION" and forces a link onto the screen which reads "ALRIGHT LET'S DO THIS!" in huge letters. It does not indicate that the hijacker is this extension "ehhkfhegcenpfoanmgfpfhnmdmflkbgk" (I had to run a virus scans and install Malwarebytes to figure out what the source is), so it isn't straightforward to detect that this extension is what infected the browser. Forcing this on all users without permission is an incredibly stupid thing to do.
  • (2023-07-10) эта очин крутоя
  • (2023-07-02) Prathap Kumar: Decent home tab. The only reason for just 2 starts is because icons become blank suddenly and I have to add them again if I want them to show specific icon for the websites I want on my home screen.
  • (2023-07-01) Ishan Bhardwaj: dig the interface
  • (2023-06-26) J J: I like it. Can't say anything bad about it, so far.
  • (2023-05-27) kira moon: E' molto bella, e mi piace che ci siano un sacco di molte opzioni che normalmente non ci sono. Unica cosa: non si puo aggiungere una foto come background, però devo dire che quelli già impostati sono molto belli. Ve la consiglio.

  • (2023-02-14) Patrick Graham: I have multiple devices. I was disappointed to learn that instead of being able to log into an account and have my changes made on one device synced with the other I would have to manually export and transfer my changes between devices every time I made changes.
  • (2023-02-03) Joan Clarke: Very efficient. I love using it.

  • (2023-07-14, v: Brian Prager EDU Channel: Grid icon on the lower left malfunction
    Is there any way to get rid of the grid icon in the lower left column and set the browser to open to the saved shortcuts like it used to be? It is now permanently stuck in what might be the "focus" mode with no website icons on the opening screen or new tabs. Is this an intentional change, or is it a bug? Is there anyone we can write to to request help? This page doesn't receive any replies.
  • (2023-07-14, v: Philip Marlowe: image files can't be used; changes can't be saved
    It no longer allows users to change the settings. The settings are permanently stuck without the ability to save an image background (I choose a solid color .png or .jpg format from my hard drive) and the "apps" (shortcuts) no longer show on opening Chrome or new tabs. Stuck with the date and time only, and a 3X3 grid symbol on the lower left that restores the shortcuts. Used to be great but it's now broken.
  • (2023-07-14, v: Brian Prager: left column broken after one time toggle of "focus" button
    Just to see what it does, I toggled on the focus button. Then toggled it off so that Chrome will continue to start up with website shortcuts across the home screen. However, regardless of setting, Chrome opens to the focus screen (the date and time) no matter what now. It is also no longer possible to be rid of the 3X3 cube that toggles between the date and the "apps" (website shortcuts). Any suggestions would be most welcome. It was working perfectly, but now seems stuck with these issues. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
  • (2023-07-14, v: Brian Prager bwprager123: Weather and Display Bugs?
    I'm a big fan of your Home - New Tab Page. It's made my experience of using Chrome much much better. I'm looking into a couple of bugs and haven't found answers so if you don't mind? I have it installed for a couple of Chrome logins, and always save and use the same settings for this extensions in all logins. In one, no matter the setting, I get a temperature with the weather checked for home page, but it is off by 20 degrees or so. With the other login, weather is also checked, but there is no temperature display at all. The lower left currently shows the beautiful backgrounds button (personally don't need that), and above that, a checkerboard / grid which toggles apps/ no apps. Can't get rid of that grid button regardless of setting. My love for the extension is for the grouping of icon/ shortcuts on Chrome, so the rest is gravy. But if you're able to address these concerns I'd like to see what can be done if anything. Thanks!
