DblClickDial Extension – Makes Your NewTab A Blank Page

by Chrome Blog on June 3, 2009

A member at our forum called ‘foosy’, developed a basic but quite an interesting plugin for Google Chrome earlier called the DblClickDial (read as double click dial). As you guys know that one of the path-breaking features of Google Chrome Browser is the Thumbnail History of the most visited sites , which shows up when you launch Google Chrome or when you open a New Tab by pressing Ctrl+t.

Though this feature is very useful as one can quickly go to the website which he frequents often thus saving time, but there are certain occasions where one does not want other’s to see what sites are you visiting often. This is where the DblClickDial Plugin will have a role.

DblClickDial Plugin Features:

  • Replace The New Tab on Chrome from Thumbnail History of most visited sites to a Blank Page.
  • Ability to Hide/Show the Thumbnail History by just double clicking anywhere on the Blank Page.
  • Faster response time when opening a new tab.

Installation And Support:

Since extensions are at the moment limited to only Dev Channel Users, so you need to have the developer’s version of Google Chrome. To install the plugin please follow the same steps as done in earlier extensions. For any support or issue regarding this plugin/extension please refer to our DblClickDial Support Forum Thread.

Download: DblClickDial - For Chrome 3.0.190.4+ - 1.1

Note For Developers: If you have made or can make plugins/extensions for Google Chrome or want to work in collaboration to make plugins/extensions for Chrome, do Contact us or register on our Google Chrome Forum.

Could not install extension from 'C:\...\dblclickdial.crx'. Bad version number
Any chance this would be updated to run with the latest chrome?

It’s a very useful plugin for Chrome. I’m not sure, but is it Safari who have auto access of your favorite sites? I used it before, but I had a problem with the set-up of my favorite sites. Will join the forum so that I can easily talk to you in case I have a problem.

I never thought that there are plugins available for Google Chrome. Simply because I’m so loyal to FF though. I’m also planning to join the group/forum to more about it.
