Recently Google Chrome changed the launch page from the apps view to their new “New Tab Page” which is just a headless Google search page. That wasn’t cool with me so here is how you go about getting your old Google Chrome apps page back.
Open Google Chrome.
Open Google Chrome Preferences.
Open a specific page or set of pages.radio button and then click the
Set pageslink. This opens the
Add a new pagefield, enter the url
Now when you launch Google Chrome you’ll you be presented with the apps page. Unfortunately launching a new tab still launches Google Search page, but hey, this is a start. If anyone one has more hack-foo then I please comment.
