Google Chrome Receives New Tab Page, Bookmark ManagerAvailable in the latest Dev builds.

With all the upcoming changes, it looks like Google Chrome users will soon enjoy a new tab page, borrowing elements from Opera and Maxthon web browsers.

As you can see from the screenshots below, updated Tab Page groups data into the following categories: Most Visited, Apps, Bookmarks and Recently Closed.

In addition to that, the new Bookmark Manager now displays sites in a Speed Dial like fashion, offering a much more refined experience for its users.

Whether such updates are set for the upcoming Google Chrome 15 Stable release, remains to be seen.

    Copy from Opera but in a better way.

      In which way it’s better than Opera’s Speed Dial?

        I meant the Grouping “Most Visited”, “Apps”, “BookMarks” & “Recently Closed”!!

          It brings no new functionality. Bookmarks won’t get thumbnails, they’ll get only favicons so what’s the usefulness of all this? More work scrolling and searching for bookmarks only. If they get thumbnails, bandwidth = gone.

          Not sure about the applications tab, I don’t know where applications appear currently.

        They improve upon it for one.

        The grouping might not be to your liking but it does have its merits.

    How do you pin the sites now on the most visited section? The feature seems to have been removed. Before you just hovered over the thumb nail and there was an option to keep the site.
