Two days ago I thought that I had found the answer to my old iGoogle favorite with the iChrome extension. I went to the Chrome Web Store and installed it. I felt like I had something similar to the old iGoogle start page that I used for over 10 years. I really came to like it just in two short days----until tonight. I think I have found a new "New Tab" favorite.
It's called Spots. With Spots, you can add your most visited web pages right to your start page in a customizable look. You can add your own images too. You also have quick access to installed apps and tabs that you have recently closed. Another great feature - Spots gives you a Search box right on your start page. It really looks like a new tab page extension that has a lot to offer. I have updated my Potts' Favorite Chrome Extensions and Apps doc with workable links to these two great new tab extensions. Having a customizable "new tab" page will save you lots of time and make your Chrome experience even better.
