I’ve never found the default “New Tab” page to be very useful with the exception of when I accidentally close a tab here and there. That said, if you look close there are a few other options on the page which can be configured. Follow along below for a quick tour on some of these options.
To get started, open chrome to a new blank tab. Google Chrome by default will list your most visited web sites in order from top-left to bottom-right. Hover your mouse over a thumbnail that belongs to each website to display 2 commonly unknown options: Pin, and Remove. If you want Chrome to literally reflect your Most visited web sites, you can leave it as is. However, Chrome isn’t the brightest and will commonly show dupe sites and thing like Login pages you might not want listed.
