Surfingkeys new tab page

See original GitHub issue

Hi. Last friday my browser somehow switched to a non-default new tab page, and I think it was that page. I don’t know how it switched, but I loved it so I assumed it was a plugin update or something. However, when I came to work this morning, this new tab page was gone, and again was the default chrome new tab. I am still able to access start.html via chrome-extension://<blahblahblahextentionid>/pages/start.html, but apparently it’s not easy to change default new tab in chrome without installing other plugins. I don’t even mind using another plugin for it, but I am pretty sure it worked without my intervention (or did it? Maybe I’m going mad and just imagining things). Anyway, is there a setting to turn this page on? Thanks 😃

Finally you are here.

What you have seen last Friday is an experiment feature for new tab override, which had been turned off hours later.

It was surprise to me that there was no one vote for that feature. Please see #529 for why I added the feature and why I turned it off just hours later.

As the override setting is a static configuration in manifest.json, users could not turn it on or off by themselves. I may bring it back if there were more votes like you.

The required permissions are already requested, so the problem is a not-very-beautiful URL on the new tab page? Annoying, but much less annoying than Surfingkeys suddenly blocking other extensions that provide custom new tab 🙂

Another idea, maybe consider creating a second browser extension in the webstore? In other words, you will have a single codebase in this repository, but when you make a chrome extension out of it, make two extensions, one with new tab page and another one without it.
