  • (2023-10-31) Justaguy: ITS SO BEAUTIFUL I LOVE IT SO MUCH The reason i got it was because the new tab page was so laggy this helped my computer run faster! 20/10 i currently have 100 new tabs open as writing this, my computer isnt even reacting
  • (2023-10-16) Steve: It messes up ALL tabs, not just the new one. You restart chrome; it loses all open tabs.
  • (2023-09-16) 西塔鬼若丸: Windowsでダークテーマにしているのにダークにならない
  • (2023-07-22) Peter Morrison: Saved the day in Microsoft Edge too. So sick of waiting for their trackers to take my data before it would load any page at all. Lightning fast now.
  • (2023-06-22) Mattias Pamdal: Great, just let us switch between dark mode & light mode. I have dark mode in Windows, but light mode in Google Chrome, yet it shows the dark mode background instead of the light mode background.
  • (2023-06-12) Ákos Zalaváry: Hi, with the latest Chrome version, it shows the following in the address bar when I start/new tab: chrome-extension://dpjamkmjmigaoobjbekmfgabipmfilij/empty_ntp.html Can it be fixed? Thanks.
  • (2023-05-22) C: Works great. A necessity for the month of June.
  • (2023-05-21) Chris Sawyer: Exactly what I wanted.
  • (2023-04-25) Illia Furman: Excellent 👏🏼
  • (2023-04-01) im coyote: C'est la meilleur extension, indispensable pour Edge en 2023 !
  • (2023-03-02) Cody Clay: Thank you. I don't know why Edge just won't let me use about:blank instead.
  • (2023-02-23) Peter Yuan (Peter): Rate:10 of 10. Less is more.
  • (2022-12-30) i7 9700k: Thank you. No idea why Google or other browsers want to add unneccessary trash so badly. When for me, an empty new tab page is all I ever wanted.
  • (2022-11-17) Camilo CBG: I'm using this on M.S. Edge, and it's perfect. I cannot believe it took more than an year trying all other workarounds for this sh*ty browsers' behavior on new tabs, until I could finally try this extension. In fact I was refusing to accept that I had to install a extension to be able to do a freaking simple thing: display a blank page. Gosh! This is absolutely ridiculous. I tried customising the new tab, tweaking the browser folders and files, removing the most elements I could, blocking domains on hosts. Nothing could be as simple and fast as a plain blank page. This extension simply does it.
  • (2022-08-20) Vincent Scheib: Simple. Works. From a Chrome developer.
  • (2022-08-05) Michael Mroz: 10/10 contains no unblockable promotions for Google hardware.
  • (2022-06-12) Helena Makarchuk: Super extension
  • (2022-05-30) Adam Binks: Great extension! One feature request: I'd prefer a blank favicon to the current white box (it is quite noticeable on dark mode)
  • (2022-04-26) Chrunch Ray: Works as expected
  • (2022-04-06) Chanmax Coco (jesus2099): UN MUST HAVE POUR EDGE
  • (2022-02-22) Edward Ferguson: Works great in MS Edge as well! TY!!!!
  • (2022-01-23) Samg381: Thank you for helping me get rid of G**gle's propaganda / virtue signaling messages on the new tab page.
  • (2022-01-20) S R: excellent :)
  • (2021-12-16) mark ifi: thank you for this. chrome://new-tab-page-third-party/ has been very annoying. i can't fathom how chromium developers can find taking keyboard focus away from the address bar of a new tab after 1 second of opening one anywhere close to acceptable
  • (2021-12-12) M H: THANK YOU! For someone with very bad chronic migraines, photophobia and nerve issues the standard white flash that Brave tries to burn your retinas with on a new window and new tab open is extremely irritating, i'm surprised this isn't just a standard option with Brave but this extension is actually a life saver for me, thank you so much to the developer/s, bless.
  • (2021-12-02) Дмитрий Мешков: Все хорошо. Но как выбрать тёмную тему?
  • (2021-11-19) ten Nock: amazing
  • (2021-11-11) Jay Marcano: Stopped working
  • (2021-11-03) Weed: does what it says - thanks!
  • (2021-08-25) Kate McKenzie: Here because Google has started putting ads on Chrome's default page. Do No Evil? Firefox is starting to look tempting.... Anyway, the extension would be better if it included a configurable dark mode. All white is headache inducing. I'm using Linux, not Windows, so the current dark functionality doesn't work for me. Even better would be retaining the theme, but I understand that might be technically difficult.
  • (2021-08-23) Rose Chuang: perfect & concise <3
  • (2021-08-13) Wong Tian You: is don work
  • (2021-05-31) kkocdko: Best for me!
  • (2021-05-04) Andy: Doesn't work on all my chrome installs, which are all inked to have the same extensions/settings. One PC ends up showing a blank white page. Better than seeing the trash that Google puts on the default page, but not as pleasant as the dark gray it should be. Can't find any info on resolving that problem.
  • (2021-05-02) kyaw soe moe: It works in normal mode. However, doesn't work in the incognito mode even though the extension is set to enable in the incognito mode.
  • (2021-03-21) S Stewart: I still don't know why this needs an extension when it can easily be implemented in the browser itself. But you know what, it works.
  • (2021-02-22) Gustavo Barbosa: Just does what it promises.
  • (2021-01-07) Petter Emil Anderssen: Love it, would perhaps suggest adding that the windows dark mode is what controls the dark mode of the extension, looked around for options for 5 min until I came across you explaining it in a comment on a review. Other than that, thanks for creating a simple solution!
  • (2021-01-04) person: too often it just opens the extension's page, chrome-extension://dpjamkmjmigaoobjbekmfgabipmfilij/empty_ntp.html and it keeps losing the stuff I type into omnibox, replacing it with that instead
  • (2020-11-03) Travis Johnson: you need this to block big tech AI propaganda bulloney
  • (2020-09-21) Giuseppe Papillo: Ottima. Restituisce una caratteristica che dovrebbe essere di default.
  • (2020-08-31) Cryss Mercurius: 我就要空白页,chrome不需要教我做事
  • (2020-08-26) Raphael: options greyed (raspberry) :)
  • (2020-08-16) Christopher B: Chrome just broke it, it doesn't select the about:blank by default anymore so you have to manually select it before you can enter your own text.
  • (2020-08-12) Scott S: It's good!
  • (2020-07-16) 彭子軒: 簡單實用
  • (2020-04-03) Keep Silent: 极简主义最爱的拓展,非常棒!
  • (2020-02-17) Phoenix Fourth: It would be perfect if we could set the new tab in Dark mode without having to change Windows 10 itself to Dark mode.
  • (2020-02-12) Trevor Cline: Works perfectly! Wish you could remove shortcuts without an additional extension!
  • (2020-02-06) V. Z.: It's great not having thumbnail shortcuts. Google search engine is useful though. I'd like to see a customize-able "white tab" (e.g. white tab, no shortcuts, default setting: url:google.com). If I had that I'd easily give it a 5 star review.
