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, image and video (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 with background video enabled.

A large online video library is available for users to choose their own favorite background videos with beautiful scenery.

I've lost all the thumbnail images on the Customize New Tabs page. I can refresh them from the selector in the thumbnail image, but the refreshed images disappear the next time I open the browser.

Need a good explanation please for How to open the dialog "Edit URL" box to define the link to put on each quick-dial button. I tried Steven Chang's "click the rightmost button on the right side of the search box in the new tab page". I do not have rightmost button that performs this action!

Open a new tab, then choose the 'Customize' button. It is the middle button between the 'World's fastest VPN' quickdial button and the address bar in the screenshot above. Directly under the Bookmark star button.

Where is this customisation dialog button? No sign of it on my New Tab screen. All I have at top right is the pesky google menu (gmail, images, <grid>)

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

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
