  • (2018-07-14) Alex Bass: Would like to use this over the New Tab Redirect plugin, but it is not selecting address bar content. Would update to 5 stars if it did and ditch using New Tab Redirect. Whatever New Tab Redirect does for: "Always update tab, not redirect. (Enable for cursor in the address bar)" - I wish this app did the same. Can someone please reply to this comment if this is ever updated? Because I likely won't check back anytime soon :/ Cheers!
  • (2018-06-10) Olivier Refalo: main differences with non plus version. 1. address bar content is selected by default. This is great and allows to quickly write a new url without the need to select all existing content. 2. UI is the standard chrome page, not sore why the original looks so crapy.

  • (2016-11-15) Yash Hiremath: I used "chrome://apps/" as the URL. It works. But when I go to the new tab that entire URL would be selected (looks blue). Is there any way I can change that
  • (2016-11-14) Peter Cordero: Does what I need it to do. Very simple for what I use it for. Redirect to Yahoo page. Thank you to developer.
  • (2016-11-09) Sneek Sheets: Doesn't work. I put in my folder locaton and the BOOKMARK location for chrome, and it didn't not work, but New Tab Redirect works.

  • (2020-06-01, v: Max Newberry: Search bar
    The search bar is no longer highlighted when a new tab is open so you have to manually click on the search bar, must be a chrome update or something. Would be great if this could be fixed, thank you for creating this, it's extremely useful. Many thanks.
  • (2018-11-14, v: Ignacio Cobos: Keep the focus on the address bar
    It would be very interesting to have the focus on the address bar, so if you need to type an address or enter a search you don't need to click on the address bar to start typing. That's the natural behavior of the original new tab, and that's what I would expect, no matter what page is the default one.
  • (2017-10-06, v: Jorge Luque: The new tab URL is not highlighted anymore after the latest Chrome Update
    My new tab URL is chrome://apps/ Before the Chrome update, when I created a new tab, that URL would be highlighted. This means that I could type anything into the search bar and it would delete the URL. That was a good thing. Now, the URL is not highlighted anymore so when I go to the new tab and type a search in the URL bar it just adds it to the front of the URL bar's contents. For example, if create a new tab, then type the word "iPad" and hit enter, the search ends up being "iPadchrome://apps"
