|Start chrome with blank page||MiguelFerreira||9/9/10 7:11 PM|
Google Chrome version: 6.0.472.55
OS: Windows 7 64 bits
When i first started using chrome, i was able to set it up, so that when i started chrome it opened a blank page; But since the last update, or the one before (i'm not sure), things changed: the first time i noticed it, was when i started chrome and it loaded the homepage..i checked the settings, and everything was like it was supposed to, but the application behaviour had changed..Now, the only way i can make chrome start with a blank page, is going to settings, and on the Homepage section select "Use the new tab page", but i lose my homepage..is there a way to restore the previous behaviour?
(i tried, and it was like i had before, going to options and at "On Startup" select "open the following pages", and then leave the section empty, but its not working anymore)
Thank you in advance,

I think you have to type in about:blank where you left the page blank, for it to open a blank page. Wow, that's a lot of blanks....

Open the Options Panel > Basics Tab > On Startup > Click the radio button next to "Open the following pages" > Click the ADD button. Where it asks for a URL type "about:blank" without the quotes. Then click ADD and then click OK to exit the Options Panel.

It's true that if you go to 'Options' > 'Basic' > 'On Startup' > 'Open the following pages' and then add 'about:blank', that chrome starts with an empty page, but still, it doesn't achieve the previous behaviour, because with these settings, on the address bar it will appear 'about:blank', and you have to delete it..Before, (or if you configure the 'Homepage' section to 'Use the new Tab page'), chrome would start with a blank page, and with nothing on the address bar, so you could start typing immediately the link of the page you wanted to go..I know that is a small detail, but to me it makes a big difference..
I was wondering if that behaviour could be defined again..
Thanks for the help guys!

Try to use this extension. It can solve some of your concerns in my opinion
