Speed Dial 2 Makes the Chrome New Tab Page Much Better

One of the changes in Google Chrome 15 was the New Tab page. Everyone got a tab style menu (that reminded many of an Android) that allowed us to organized our bookmarks and chrome apps into many different tabs. It was a great, functional too – but everything has it’s flaw. Chrome’s revamped New Tab page has a crappy design, that just makes stuff look bad. And it doesn’t work well the the themes. It happened to be my biggest problem with the whole feature. I loved the functionality but I’m sorry, I judge a book by it’s cover.

Then I came across Speed Dial 2. Speed Dial 2 is a Google Chrome Extension that allows users to not only get a more appealing New Tab page, but also gives them the opportunity to customize it to their preferences. Once installed, users can easily import bookmarks as dials as they prefer, get the screenshot and get started!

You can change the look of the dials, display apps, add custom CSS, organize dials into groups and much more. The Options pane owns a very functional, detailed yet human UI. Even someone with completely zero knowledge of computers would be able to do it. The scope of customizations are vast, so don’t forget to experiment with all the features to get the best of it.

I suggest you guys give Speed Dial 2 at go. It’s a great extension to Chrome and really does bring the beauty out of this browser. Google should make this their default New Tab page. And if you’ve already gotten Speed Dial 2 installed, please do share your opinions on it at the comment section below.

    For some reason, when I open a new tab, it shows Speed Dial 2’s background, but the dials themselves do not appear until I press the home button. Can someone tell me how I can fix this issue?

    I’m currently using Chrome v19.0.1084.52
