I recently did a post on the Awesome New Tab Page…… a chrome add-on available from the Chrome Web Store. Last night in surfing play mode, I came across a similar type of add-on called Speed Dial 2, and decided to give it a go and I must say personally speaking I believe it might be a useful alternative for some of you.

From the screenshot below you will see that when I open a new tab…….Once again like the Awesome New Tab Add on….. I have instant access to my Google services like Gmail, Reader, Docs etc.


For my blogging, I have customised my new tab pages so that I am able to access very easily my blogs, my You-tube, Facebook and Twitter accounts…all at at the click of a mouse.

What I like about this add-on is that it is very easy to use to add basically any other site you like to your new tab. All you have to do is click the + button, and the box illustrated below pops up—-



enter the web address of a favourite site… I have picked Amazon UK, and entered their URL…Click.save….and you get (see the image below) …..


Now by simply clicking ┬áthe Amazon UK site in my example, and letting the page load….it will swipe the sites logo,,visible from thereon in when I open a new tab….see the image below


Another useful feature is if you HOVER OVER the > icon on the right hand side of a new tab it brings up this ….Bookmarks, recently closed tabs etc


Personally I Like this add on….no doubt others will too, or maybe you are already using it ??
