Incredible Startpage 1.7 released!

Flexible layout

  • For wide screen users, the main tab area would size dynamically,  and you might want to show 4 columns instead of 3 or 2 columns.

  • Show/Hide "Bookmarks & Recently Closed" columns: Now you can hide them when you don't need them; when the columns are hidden, the notepad will automatically be enlarged and you can write some very long notes :)

New Filter for bookmarks and apps

Type to filter items in "My Bookmarks" and "My Apps" tab. Great when you have lots of bookmarks and you just can't spot it on screen.

Incredible Startpage is Web App ready! (1.1.0)

You might have heard from the web already - exciting new changes are coming soon to Chrome, and we have made Incredible Startpage ready for it!

Starting this version (1.1.0), Incredible Startpage is now Chrome Web Apps ready. It looks and works completely the same old good Incredible Startpage at the moment, but when Chrome App Store launches and you have your first taste of Chrome Web Apps, Startpage will be able to show your installed apps and allow you to launch your apps from it. Yay!

If you are upgrading from older versions (1.0.0 or before), remember to accept the new permissions for the latest Incredible Startpage if you haven't already! For Ubuntu users please manually update to Chrome 8.0 stable or above to be able to use the extension! Thanks.

We are all looking forward to it. Enjoy!

Incredible StartPage for Chrome

Check out our latest Chrome extension - Incredible StartPage!

Incredible StartPage is an awesome replacement of Chrome's "new tab" page. The new start page shows your bookmarks, recently closed tabs and a notepad in once place, along with a customizable theme.

The first thing you may want to do is to customize your background. Click the "theme options" button on the bottom left corner to open the theme menu. You can choose the background color and a background image from several Flickr categories.

The large frame on the right displays bookmarks from your Bookmark Bar. You can move the items by drag and drop. If you want to put more bookmarks in the frame, you can drag bookmarks from the bookmark browser:

The closed tabs browser is a simple way to get back accidentally closed tabs. Note Chrome currently does not suppport restoring tab history from extensions, so it only restores the last page loaded in the tab.

Finally, there is a handy notepad for you to take short notes. You can send the notes to Gmail /Calender in one click!

That's it. Have a try and tell us what you think!
