    Default Speed Dial for Chrome

    Just come across this great little extension ...

    It allows you to customise the NewTab page as a Speed Dial ...

    Currently in its infancy (new features promised) so bear this in mind before you criticise it...

    Can customise dials from 1-6 rows and 1-6 columns (I've got 3x5) ...

    Display Search box (Google) and recently closed tabs ...

    Customise the theme and background ...

    Forgot to mention you can rearrange the thumbnails by 'dragging' ...

    This imo is a superb addition ...

    From day 1 of Chrome I've always been frustrated that opening the NewTab doesn't open my Homepage (Tools>Options>Basic Tab>Homepage) ...

    Now I can customise this Speed Dial and have My Homepage as the Chrome NewTab page (bye bye Only2Clicks - and it loads a lot faster !!)...

    Get it here ...

    Can't wait for the next release of this impressive extension ...

    Enjoy

    My sentiments exactly regarding this extension. I agree it is awesome, and SO much better than Only2Clicks and the NewTabPage extension.

    Thanks for this. But you the ellipsis a LOT. It was kind of hard to understand what you were trying to say when ... your sentences ... are all broken ... up like ... this.
