Google New Tab extension

Great article on Lifehacker.com.  One key weakness of Google Chrome is that it doesn’t have Google’s toolbar.  Come on, Google, Jeez! One workaround is to pin your recent pages on the initial screen.  This Chrome New Tab extension looks like its a step further in the right direction.

Chrome’s New Tab extension installs as an extension and can be edited under Tools | Extensions.  You can have it load a page that you specify when opening up a new tab.  Options include your recent history, Facebook, any URL that you select, or even a file on your hard disk.  For me, I want new tabs to default to Google’s search page.
