Replace Chrome’s New Tab Page With A Personal Dashboard

The usability of Chrome’s new tab page can be enhanced by replacing it with Momentum. This Chrome extension brings old-fashioned new tab page to Chrome along with a personal dashboard that features a to-do list, weather, time and beautiful backgrounds.

 The default new tab page in Chrome now is a simplified Google homepage with thumbnails of most visited pages below the search box and Apps button on the bookmark bar.

Momentum replaces this new tab page with a personal dashboard; however, you can switch back to the original tab page by clicking the “Apps” option shown at upper left corner of the screen.

With beautiful images, the upper right corner of the screen displays the current city weather, the lower right corner displays a to-do list, the middle of the screen display system time and today's main goal and you want to switch back to the original tab, just click the upper left corner of Apps. You can edit every item by double clicking at appropriate locations.

 Momentum can be install from Chrome Web Store
