Chrome: You have all sorts of ways to customise your new tab page in Chrome. But if you're looking for something with a lot of customisation options and a fast load time, Fruumo is worth a look.
Once you have Fruumo installed, you'll have instant access to the weather, time, a voice assistant, apps, recently closed tabs, Facebook and more. You can then customise the background image, add an RSS feed, and even check out the full five-day forecast.
Fruumo also has a built in search box where you can search through bookmarks, bookmarklets and apps. Despite how many things Fruumo does, it's fast, and loads almost instantly when you open a new tab.
