This extension shows the apps overview when opening a new tab in Chrome.
Make sure to use Chrome version 84+ with this extension, otherwise the automatic selection of the locationbar text doesn't work.
Since Google updated Chrome to version 29, the App overview is no longer shown, when opening a new tab. This extension restores that behaviour to the way it was.
Tip: the keyboard shortcut CTRL+L (Windows/Linux) or CMD+L (OSX) highlights the URL.
This is the same as v.1.1.0, back by popular demand
Removed for now
Now automagically selects the URL, as many of you have requested.
