Blank "new tab" page. Reduces Chrome memory usage by up to 100MB per tab.
Chrome's "new tab" is a cluttered mess. It's also a memory hog.
This extension reduces the Chrome "new tab" from 140MB to about 40MB per tab, saving you 100MB per tab.
You can also customize new tabs with your own text and HTML, via the extension's options page.
Unlike many of the other extensions in this category, this extension by default gives you a completely blank "new tab" page, instead of replacing Chrome's clutter with more clutter.
