New Tab opens with a blank black page
Make your New Tab a simple Blank Black Page :) If you like a New Tab to open quickly and contain nothing this is the Extension for you. Get rid of the default Chrome New Tab and it's slow-loading privacy-pooping "Recently Opened Websites" icons. Why did I write this Extension? Because I don't like the default Chrome New Tab, and most importantly I want my New Tabs to simply be a blank black page. So here it is! As Eric S. Raymond said "Every good work of software starts by scratching a developer's personal itch." You may also be interested in my "New Tab Custom Colour Blank Page" Chrome Extension which allows you to choose the background colour, available here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/new-tab-custom-colour-bla/alpbidclbcicajijnlgcchmkkbbknokl Enjoy!
