An Awesome ‘Home New Tab Page’ Chrome Extension.
I stumbled upon an incredibly useful and beautiful new home tab page extension for my Chrome browser. It is called Home – New Tab Page.
On my 27-inch Dell monitor it looks incredible while on my Surface Pro 4, touching the icons is effortless. All my key apps or favorite websites are right at my finger tips, as well as notifications, calendar events, time, date and a large Google search bar.
It is perfect especially since my Google profile follows me where ever I go. Not to mention I can select from a bunch of awesome backgrounds. The crazy thing is this extension is free. Kudos to the author, but there really should be a donation button.
Some of the features of the extensions are as follows:
- NEW: add your own custom apps!
- Built-in beautiful background gallery.
- Upload custom background (tile, stretch).
- Rearrange icons and multiple app pages.
- Recently closed tabs.
- Right-click app menu (options, remove).
- Quick Search.
Notifications and badges
- Google Calendar.
- Yahoo! Mail.
- Outlook (Hotmail).
- Facebook messages.
As well notifications, badges, recently closed tabs, and quick notes.
