Google Chrome: Chrome’s new tab page is pretty useful, as is the even better, previously mentioned Speed Dial. If you’d prefer to make it a web page, though, New Tab Redirect will let you specify the URL for all newly opened tabs.
While you can make your home page the new tab page, there is no preference in Chrome for the opposite—that is, making new tabs open up on your home page (or any other page you want). New Tab Redirect is a simple extension for Chrome that lets you specify a URL, whether it be a web page like previously mentioned Fav4.org, about:blank, or even a file on your computer. You can even use one of Chrome's built-in pages, like Extensions, History, or Downloads. Hit the link to try it out.
