Bring A Google Now-Style Home Page To Chrome

Chrome extension New Tab Page brings the Google Now look and feel to the browser. You'll see weather and news cards, as well as your frequently visited sites.

Additionally, the familiar Google Now bar includes a box for search as well as a button to use voice commands. This isn't a new feature, by any means, but it's very handy to have on the new tab page.

Curiously, at the moment, all voice searches get an extra 'h' attached to the beginning, but hopefully this will be fixed in an update. Some more customisation options would be nice too. Still, the extension is useful as is, and it's not bad-looking either.

    I wish someone would combine something like this with something like Speed Dial 2

    Doesn't appear to be a way to set the weather to Metric nor is it possible for you to change the news site used. Lame for Australians.

    It would be great if google did this themselves, bringing up Google Now cards based on what it knows about you right there on the new tab page.
