This extension brings back the ability to open new tabs to a simple blank new tab page void of any thumbnails or other data. This version has a dark theme which should meet the missing need for those with darker themes and want quick, simple old blank tab behavior. Please check out my other extensions as well. If you use or are interested in URL shortening, and want a really easy way to get a PAYPAL payment just for people clicking on and waiting for a quick 5 second ad-sponsored redirect - then please use my link here so I get a tiny referral: https://shorte.st/ref/06e39344d5 And then, use my extension (since one did not exist, I wrote one) to use your own shorte.st account to automatically generate shortened URLs of the current page in Chrome tab just by clicking a browser button!

- (2021-07-24) Tom Lumbra: Have used a few blank tab extensions before. I love this one. I thought I wanted pure black, but the little bit of muted texture on the black page looks really good. I've now switched to this one on all my computers and chrome profiles.
- (2019-08-04) Matt Manhart: Beautiful. Doesn't need access to sites I visit. Doesn't read or change anything on all the sites. It's just basic plain page without any privacy intrusions.
- (2019-02-14) notbydesign: Perfect! Dark but not just plain black. Great job and thank you!
- (2018-07-09) Honsu Fu: Sorta wish it was just all black blank but this works since it's dark and better then white annoyance.
- (2018-05-28) JM: If you add the possibility to cycle images it will make it a great extension.
- (2017-09-28) it's i'm: Отлично!!!
- (2017-01-31) Simon Markey: Perfect! doesn't break the search on chromium like the home extension. Does exactly what it say a black new tab which is perfect for my dark themes. Great work. Thanks.
- (2016-04-18) Philip Manzo: Perfect
- (2016-02-19) This is one of the few "blank tab" extensions not covering for some nefarious data collection. Good solve. It would be nice if any further updates allowed for one to change the background image.
- (2015-11-18) Justin Z: Really great. I've been looking for something like this for a long time. It would be perfect if there was an option to customize the background image.
- (2015-08-21) spyngjkr u: This is what I needed. The top visiting sites' thumbnails in new tab are annoying and distracting. We always need a clear interface on new tab for good focus. The other extension provides white bright background in new tab which I don't like. This one is very good and clean. Thanks..
