Simply set the URL you want new tabs to load and it'll load it. No fluff.
Very similar to other "New Tab URL" redirect extensions but this one is stripped down to the bare essentials. There are 3 options available:
- URL you want the new tab URL to be
- whether chrome should sync this setting
- whether you wish to enable a light mode theme (it currently defaults to a dark theme)
Note: If your new tab url is a local file (i.e. it starts with "file://" rather than "http://") then you will have to enable the "Allow access to file URLs" permission for this extension on the Manage Extensions page.
