How to Open New Tab in Chrome as Blank Page

Update: How do I Get an Empty New Tab Page Please ?

People need more privacy. Opening new tab as a blank page is a popular demand among Google Chrome users. Unfortunately, this is not added as a feature yet. But don’t worry. We have a new workaround for this. A simple shortcut.

1. Type [about:blank] or [“about:blank”);void(0)] into your browser window
2. Make this a bookmark on your bookmark bar
When you open a new tab, click on this bookmark and not the regular new tab button. This will give you a blank tab. It’s that simple !! Go .. try this now !

Dinsan made Google Chrome his default browser within hours of its release. He fell in love with Chromebooks from the day he first touched one and is currently obsessed with Chromecasts.

    This is inadequate. It initializes the url field with “about:blank” and places the cursor in front of the text. You have to do a cumbersome select-all+delete to get a blank fields to write your search. If the text had been initially automatically selected so any press of a key had deleted the “about:blank”, it would have been harmless. But no alas.
    In practical terms is’s useless.

    I actually have one pc where I by some strange chance got a setup where pressing new-tab gives a completely empty page and url-field. I just can’t figure out what the setup is and I can’t do it again on my other pc. Darn-it!
