About

BlankBrowser.com is a simple solution to preset, slow, cluttered, or ugly homepages that everyone has dealt with. Enjoy the speed and beauty of your favorite color or a simple quote every time you open a new browser window or tab.

Options

Color

Select a color using the dropdown box in the center of the footer. A complimentary color will automatically be chosen for any of the optional content (see below).

To retain your new settings use the auto-generated URL at the bottom of the page. You may set this link as your homepage. Note: Once a custom color has been specified, the footer will fade completely away.

FAQ

How do I change my homepage/new tab in Chrome??
I recommend adding the "Any New Tab" extension. It allows you to customize your new tab while also giving the Address Bar focus when loading a new tab.
