What is Dark New Tab?

'Dark New Tab' is a Firefox extension which opens a blank browser tab with a dark or white background color. Typically, a new tab encompasses numerous items such as tiles, bookmarks, and a search filed among others. However, Dark New Tab provides a more simplistic new tab alternative. Notably, the default background color of Dark New Tab is dark, but can be switched to white using the moon icon. This feature retains your selection for future usage. Additionally, in case of any feature requests or bug reports, they can be made via the add-on's homepage.

Dark New Tab, is a simple and very lite addon which enables you to open a new tab, completely empty with just a dark or white background color. The default browser tab is usually packed with lots of items such as tiles, bookmarks, search filed, etc. If you prefer to have a simple and clean new tab, this add-on works just great for you. Simply add it to your browser and it works instantly.

Note: the default background color is dark. If you prefer a white background color please press on the - moon - icon at the top left corner of the screen. This toggle button will switch the background color, and stores the state in the memory.

How to work with this addon: just click on the new tab button on your browser and it opens a blank tab instead of the default one.

If you have a feature request or found a bug to report, please fill the bug report form in the add-on's homepage.
