Keeping with the rapid releases, Google recently rolled out Chrome version 29, among changes and improvements the company also introduced a refreshed New Tab Page.
The new tap features Google’s daily doodle, search box, and a list of the most visited websites. Although, this new change aims to make the search experience a little better, for what I’m hearing the new renovation is more annoying than helpful. As such, I want to share a simple tip that will bring back the old “New Tab Page”, which only features the last eight web pages you frequently visit.
1 While in Chrome go to chrome://flags
2 Use the Ctrl+F keyboard shortcut to bring page search and look for Enable Instant Extended API and disable the option.
3 Relaunch the web browser and now the old New Tab Page should be restored.
