New Tab Feeder Chrome Extension

by Abhinab Choudhury on May 22, 2012

New Tab Feeder is a new app on the Chrome Webstore. The ease of use and customized news feed at regular interval is what makes it a better option for busy people. When I first came across this extension via a reference mail I was a bit confused about the working features but as I installed this extension I was blown away but the simplicity and high utility factor of this chrome add-on. Let us find out what it has in its bag for the Chrome community.

Main Features

This extension utilizes the dull space of the new tab and beautifully transforms it to a very productive panel. It has four tabs: Home, News, Apps and Translate with a news roller docked at the bottom of the Chrome browser which constantly gets updated via news feed from major online newspapers.

Customized Speed Dials

Speed dials are automatically adjusted as per your working situation. The most used tabs are highlighted as speed dial and are very useful while opening and closing multiple tabs.


News feed from your favourite news sites

The news container is placed at the bottom of the feed tab and updates at real-time to give you the latest news as soon as it is posted. The featured news sites are CNN.com, TIME, VB and The Economist. You can also set additional news partners such as CNN, NBA, ESPN and many more.

The feeds gets updates every three seconds and shows you the latest hot news from the partner sites. As of now there are more than 15 news partners and they plan to add in some more by the end of this month.

Built-in translator

The language support is provided for English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Dutch and Hebrew as of now. The developer plans to add in more languages to the application very soon. The translate button translates the text in no time and it can auto detect the listed language as well.

Smart search

This feature is very simple and come handy for recalling last opened tabs. The auto complete feature is more or less similar to Google search but it can also recall tabs from the history index so that if you are not sure about the complete name of the last opened site you can type in a few words and it will prompt you about the history at the suggestion tab under it.

Pros and Cons

The utility feature this extension provides is way above any extension available in the Play store for chrome but there is something which we should also let you know. The theme feature won’t work with it. The tabs and the menu panels will display the theme colors and images but you won’t be able to view the blank tab image background. But let me ask you one thing – How good is a theme as compared to multiple utility options you are going to get with newtabfeeder?

The live news feed, fast dial websites and an off page translator are something which we have failed to see in many new extensions. This simple program has combined multiple options into a single app for the Chrome users. We have reviewed more than hundreds of extensions till date but this application is something which we could not negotiate with for the rating stars. We give it 9 out of 10 and definitely a plus one from our official team here at chromeplugins.org.
