A minimal Get Things Done New Tab extension to make you more productive.
New Tab GTD is a clean, pleasing and minimalistic New Tab Extension that makes you more productive by just showing you the essentials: a clock and the tabs you have open right now on all windows in a vertical easy-to-scan way. It features a dark theme to avoid distractions and eye-strain while keeping it highly legible.
You can click on any tab to go to it, or close it by clicking the × button. By seeing all tabs from all windows top to bottom, you can manage "tab-chaos" in a very efficient way and clean up all the clutter you may have accumulated after a long browsing session. Below those, you will find the last 5 tabs you've recently closed, so you can restore any accidentally closed tabs.
There is a tiny unobstrusive counter of the tabs and windows you have open on the right that turns red whenever you have more than 9 tabs open (why 9 tabs? see https://lifehacker.com/why-you-should-never-have-more-than-nine-browser-tabs-o-5984149 ). Whenever you have more than one window open, a [Merge] button will show up when hovering the window number, clicking it will merge all windows into one.
If you don't like the default theme, you can change the color theme by clicking the [theme] button, you can also change the size of the clock by clicking on it.
You will also see tiny icons next to the favicon of each tab, these are: ⭐️ highlighted tab, 📌 pinned tab, 🔈 audible tab and 💤 sleeping tab.
At the bottom of the page, you will find hundreds of carefully selected GTD, motivation, inspiration, productivity, business, positivity and life-advice quotes so you can momentarily declutter your mind and get inspired. Clicking on a quote will show a new one.
There is nothing more to this extension, which makes it super lightweight and fast to load.
Please keep in mind that the purpose of this extension is to be functional, minimal, simple and lightweight. If you need fancy features such as weather forecast, to-do lists, fancy backgrounds and so on, there are many amazing extensions available in the Chrome Store that will suit your needs better. As for myself, I prefer to have a non-distracting straight-to-the-point extension that keeps me focused on whatever I'm doing, this is New Tab GTD.
