As soon as Chrome is installed, the first thing many users do is configure the browser so that every time we open a new tab, the Google search engine is automatically displayed. Others, however, do not modify the settings so that only a blank page is displayed when opening new tabs or the browser. However, depending on the use we usually make of it, not always the best option.
If we regularly use Chrome to search the Internet, configuring the Chrome home page with the Google search engine is more than enough. But, if we have a daily routine, be it accessing Twitch, email, watching the latest YouTube videos or the news of the day, among others, we can use one of the different extensions available in the Chrome Web Store to customize our experience.
Toby for Chrome
If we configure different pages at the start of Chrome, although we do not need to consult them at that moment, accessing them later can be more or less complicated depending on our activity in the browser, since if we open new tabs, the oldest ones can be lost by the way.
The solution to this problem is to use the Toby extension, an extension that shows us in the form of a bar, all the tabs that we have open at that moment, which allows us to identify them quickly. Also, if we need the links of those tabs, we can simply drag them to the workspace we are in.
Group Speed Dial
Behind Group Speed Dial we find an extension that allows us to display on the Chrome home screen a Thumbnail view (which we can also group into folders) of the web pages that we have previously configured, which allows us to identify them without having to read their name.
The extension allows us to configure any web page with just 2 clicks, all changes are synchronized on other computers associated with the same Google account, it does not include any type of advertisement and it is completely free.
Tabliss is an ideal extension if we have tired of the classic blank screen that Google Chrome shows us when opening or opening a new tab. Tabliss allows us to give it a touch of color with background images along with a different greeting depending on the time of day.
If we don’t want an image, we can set a color or gradient pattern. We can also add widgets to show the time, the weather forecast, pending tasks among others. This extension is completely free and does not display any type of advertisement.
Another interesting extension that not only allows us to configure different wallpapers, but also allows us to add different types of widgets is Renewed Tab. With this extension, unlike Tabliss, we can customize the location of the widgets on the home screenincludes support for themes and we can independently configure the operation of each widget.
New Tab Draft
New Tab Draft is an extension that offers us a blank page where we can write notesbeing ideal for taking quick notes that are later accessible from the extension itself, perfectly ordered.
