I’ve recently switched from Firefox to Chrome, but I don’t care for the default Chrome “New Tab” page. The Firefox version was never quite what I wanted either, so I decided to make an extension for Chrome to work the way I wanted: a grid with giant buttons for my most visited sites. Here’s my requirements:
- Extremely simple layout
- No extraneous features (like weather, todo lists, etc)
- Easy management of the sites that appear on the page
So here’s the result: Spartan New Tab. I have a few features to add, but it’s usable as it is.
