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.
