In Slimjet, the New Tab page has been greatly enhanced to increase both flexibility and usability, compared with what's available in the Chrome browser. Here is the list of enhancement we've made to the Slimjet New Tab page,

  • Customizable rows and columns.
  • Customizable background color and image (indepedent from the currently-applied theme).
  • Semi-transparent quick-dial buttons when background image is applied.
  • Flexible options to put different types of links on a quick dial button
    1. Pin a manually-specified URL
    2. Automatically use a frequently used site
    3. Pin a saved QuickFill form file
      It lets you log into your favorite online account with a single click on a quick-dial button.
    4. Pin a bookmark folder
      It lets you open all the bookmarks under the folder with a single click on a quick-dial button.
  • Higher resolution thumbnail images
  • Quickly switch between multiple search engines from the search box.

Here is a screenshot of the New Tab page:

What if I want a blank new tab?? How do I remove all of these quick-dial buttons?

I tried setting the row and column values to zero, then to 1.
Error msg says values have to be at least 2 and 2

Maybe there's an addon that would allow you to do that for NEW TABS.

This is the easiest way. You should first customize the Slimjet New Tab page to your liking (eg. background video) because the tab Settings link on the subsequent new tabs will be hidden along with the quick-dial buttons. Edit the file "overlay.css" (using any text editor) that's found in the SlimJet/html/newtab subfolder. Simply copy and paste these 3 lines to the end of the file: table{ visibility:hidden; } Save the file, then open a new tab to see the results. Of course, ... Read More

So then, how exactly DO I GET THE DIALOGUE BOXES ON THE NEW TAB PAGE, you morons? You know, like Customize tabs page? Edit URL? Might there be a menu somewhere? Right click? Left click? CTRL_click? Hmm. Double click? No click? Drag and drop from the menu bar? No, that makes too much sense. All that does is open the link. Pin tab? Nope. How about those flexible options. Where are they hiding?

The New Tab page does not always display. When I choose a new tab I get the tab with, more often than not, just a dark, blank page.
