Change/Customize/Blank New Tab Page

Yeah, that’s the “Release” version. To get the options I showed, you need to run Dev or Nightly, which are hotlinked in my post.

Thanks Hnk, I will get on and switch to that now.

Why rely on other extension can this be implemented on browser itself, I just want clean new tab without any wallpaper or let us customize new tabs.

@Bl1ts With the new settings for the new tab page (should now be available from Brave Beta on) you can have an almost blank new tab page.

Furthermore, you can always change your new tab page completely. Unfortunately, there is not setting for this in Brave (at least I couldn’t find one), but you can install new tab pages from the chrome webstore.
For example https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/new%20tabe, install it and it should be automatically your new tab page. If you remove it again, the Brave new tab page is displayed again.

Any ETA on the release date?

Maybe add an option to have the bookmarks bar show only on NTP like in Chrome? I don’t want it to take away from the screen estate on a regular basis, but it’s useful to see / navigate on the NTP.

@br4ve_account1111,
This option is already implemented in Nightly and Dev builds and is moving down the pipeline to release:

Hi, @br4ve_account1111. Interesting idea. @Mattches, I believe the OP means that the bookmarks bar itself would not be shown anywhere except the NTP, which is somewhat different from the preference you highlighted here. I don’t know of a way to do that.

In the above scenario, with the Always show bookmarks bar on New Tab page toggled on, but the Show bookmarks bar option toggled off, the result is no bookmarks bar for any sites while browsing, but it will always appear on the NTP.

Oh, sorry, didn’t actually try it.

I have a different issue that I don’t see listed. I use the Remove feature (X) on a Top Site and it constantly returns. I have ‘removed’ this site at least 25 times but it always returns, while a site I WANT in Top Sites I cannot get because I ‘removed’ a different URL at the same site.
