[Request] New Tab Opens Specific Page OR Add Custom Images to Speed Dials

  • This is a double suggestion but to fix the same issue I'm having:
    I use an extension for a start page that allows custom images for the speed dials. I can set it as the start page, but can't set it as the New Tab page. So can we please either:

    a) Have the ability to change the new tab to be a specific page? or
    b) Allow custom images for speed dials, as it usually just uses the domain name which I'm not a fan of.


  • In Opera, goto the URL opera://extensions and turn on developer mode. Then, click "details" for the start page extension and take note of its ID. Then navigate to the URL chrome-extension:theid/manifest.json and take note of the html page set in chrome_url_overrides.

    Then, install and in its settings, set the new tab page to your start page extension's main page, which would be chrome-extension://theid/name.html.

    Then, you'll be good to go.

  • @burnout426 Oh awesome, thanks! Thought it was already possible with default chrome, didn't even think of looking for an extension.
