Chrome new tab replacement for BMW fans: enjoy amazing images each time when you click the “New Tab” button…
This extension replaces the “new tab” page (the page Chrome shows when you click the “new tab” button) with image-oriented minimalist version (without sacrificing functionality).
The main goal is to get rid of all useless “bells and whistles” (widgets, thumbnails, search boxes etc.) and show full-page, high-quality wallpaper instead.
The most important “feature” of the new tab page is here: the most visited pages list. We just put it in the top-left menu and removed the big thumbnails.
- 65 hand-picked high quality images
- Randomly selected wallpaper for each new tab
- Links to most visited, bookmarks, history and more (you can choose which one to show/hide)
- Clean and simple interface — just the wallpaper and the small menu on top (if you decide to keep it)
- Works offline (no internet required, images are part of the extension so it will not eat your bandwidth)
Questions & Answers:
- Most Visited — the list of the most visited sites, as provided by the browser (please note that we do not track your browsing history — the list of your most visited pages is provided by the browser itself)
- Bookmarks — shortcut to your bookmarks
- History — link to the history page
- Apps — if you are using chrome apps, this could be useful (hidden by default, go to the “Options” page to enable)
- Options — quick access too the extension’s options page
- Help — quick link to this document
If the small menu in the top-left corner is too much of distraction for you, just go to the settings page and select which menu links to be shown or hidden. Each of the menu items (listed in the previous question) can be turned on and off.
To add/remove menu items, just check/uncheck respective checkboxes.
You can de-select all menu items if you want to hide the top-left menu at all.
How to access the “Options” page?
If you see an “Options” link on the top-left menu on the new tab page, just click it. If not, use the following method:
- Right-click on the extensions icon
- Click “Options”
- Click on the respective checkboxes to select/deselect menu links
Alternatively, you can visit chrome://extensions page and click the “options” link under the extension description.
