New tab Extensions in chrome browser:
Chrome New Tab Page replaces Chrome's default new tab with one that includes weather, news headlines, frequently visited sites, and a larger Google search bar at the top. Some other developers also make such types of New Tab Page extension to use the large white empty space in earlier new tab page in Google Chrome. Here are some of the top extensions that you can use to replace the New Tab Page in Google Chrome.
1. iStart -
New tab page, in metro style: The new tab page in Metro style. Awesome startpage for your browser. All Apps, pages in one place. Customable and awesome. Sort the tiles (items) with drag and drop. Right click on an item enables you to configure an item. Change the link, or the icon. Or delete an app easy Or change the look and feel of the whole background.
This extension shows your Speed Dial button, 3d wall, online sync, new tab start page, organize bookmarks, backgrounds, customize dials, groups, most visited. FVD Speed Dial - Speed dial button, 3D Wall, Full Sync, New tab start page, Organize bookmarks, Custom backgrounds, custom dials, organized groups, most visited dials, you can hide your dials and much more!
X New Tab Page is one great Chrome extension by using HTML5. It provides speed dials for top or popular sites, and is easier to open your installed chrome apps. More importantly, it organizes hundreds of popular sites' logo in the cloud, so that users could add any of their favorite sites on demand. Do not worry to lost your choice it will save users' customized configuration in the cloud. Meantime, it has some more useful functionality e.g. Real-time weather report, organized bookmark, recent visited sites and cloud background pages. In one word, its goal is to improve the user experience of original Chrome New Tab.
4. MY BROWSER PAGE:
MyBrowserPage is a starter page with Metro design, graphical list of the most popular sites and multiple search engine included, requires no registration, is free to use. It is an application rather than extension. You can make it as your Home page. It has Social Networking sites, news and entertainment sites. But there is a limitation that you cannot edit or add your favorite sites other than the defaults. I wish there should be at least one section of tiles be editable by the user, and should be able to edit the arrangement of the placing of the tiles.
These are some of best extension I tried. You can give some other extensions in the comment box. Thank you!!!
