Customize Google Chrome New Tab with the little help of HTML tags and your favorite, frequently used links which you want to attach to the New Google Chrome Tab. Just follow the tutorial to customize the web browser new tab which pop up as soon as you fire up your web browser. Rather than searching the links and information required, you can directly access them via your Customized New Tab in your Web Browser. The idea is simple, we just have to create a HTML web page containing all the frequently used links and will redirect that to the new tab in your web browser.
- Users can use Adobe Dreamweaver, or any other WYSIWYG web page editor tool to create a HTML page containing links of your choice.
- Once done with the HTML page with all the frequently used links, store it in your local machine(somewhere safely).
- Open the newly created HTML web page in a single Google Chrome Tab, click on wrench icon(to your top right), move down to Options, which will open up a New Tab.
- Under Options Tab, Move to On startup under Basics, choose Open the following page. Click on Use Current pages to complete the process.
Now every-time you’ll open your Google Chrome Web Browser, you will be greeted with your newly created HTML web page containing all your useful links into it.
In the same way, Mozilla Firefox users can add their customized HTML page with all their links as a welcome tab. Here’s a hint how to add the same page in Mozilla Firefox.
- Open Mozilla Firefox.
- From top left, click on Mozilla Firefox>>Options.
- Under General>>Startup. Set When Firefox starts to Show my homepage.
- And paste the path of the HTML web page, you created in the above tutorial, as a Homepage. Click Ok to complete the process.
Check out this video to get a clear understanding of the tutorial. Here’s a video in which I’m using Adobe Dreamweawer CS4 to create the HTML web page containing all the useful links.
