  • (2022-06-12) Helena Makarchuk: Super extension
  • (2022-05-30) Adam B: 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: 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.
  • (2020-01-23) Ad Nad: Just simple and amazing
  • (2019-12-20) Albert Albert: Why on the Earth I hadn’t installed this Chrome’s extension before? Now my window is a complete zen! No monkeypoops, nothing, real blank page!
  • (2019-11-06) Egor Ryabkov: Used it for a while and was quite happy until I set Solarized as my system theme, then white startpage started to jump out. Will be happy to set it to 5* when there's a setting for empty page color.
  • (2019-10-23) Baker Doge: Accidentally installed this and now I am happy.
  • (2019-09-25) Calos: Very useful.
  • (2019-08-14) q G: 空白了 ,很好
  • (2019-07-26) Иван: The best extension but please add default bookmark bar which displays on default Chrome blank page. It's possible?
  • (2019-06-24) zeppy13131: I started using this after the "New Tab Page" extension stopped working. However, now that I'm using Windows 10's Dark mode, having plain white new tabs appear is too startling... I wish this extension let you choose the color.
  • (2019-06-15) Sam Watkins: Very helpful, improves performance too. The regular new tab page sucks because it takes time to load, and often replaces the link I pasted into the address bar! Thanks
  • (2019-06-08) David Nguyen: It just works
  • (2019-05-24) Arseniy P: the best!! как я раньше без этого жил!?? ничего не тормозит, ни малейшего лага. никаких ненужных вторых строк поиска и недозакладок(ненастраиваемых!)! но!!! эта страница всегда белая( даже если тема серая, оттенки темного и тп. или картинка какаяниб, но новая вкладка с этим расширением всегда белая и не настраивается никак(
  • (2019-05-20) Tim Z: No way to turn dark mode on???
  • (2019-04-24) Andrew Levin: It'd be great if there was a dark mode.
  • (2019-04-03) Marco F: I've been using this for a long time. Just now, I notice how useful it's been to me for so long. "Does what it says" so well I'd forgotten all about it :) I guess this is a testament to Chrome integrations and stability through upgrades as well.
  • (2019-03-27) Olga Kharlip: Sometimes, empty new tab extension causing new tab to open with following url "chrome-extension://dpjamkmjmigaoobjbekmfgabipmfilij/empty_ntp.html"
  • (2019-03-20) Jinhao Ye: 一片空白,非常舒服,这插件我很需要
