    my new tab is blank - so why open another site which uses more memory?
    what is your purpose? concerning new tabs or fast dial chrome is a pain.

    The size of an extension package has little to do with the amount of memory it uses when running. I could create an extension which package size would be much smaller than this one and yet consumes massive amount of memory and CPU.

    Google chrome allows you to set a new tab page natively without the use of an extension.
