About

Google Chrome's new tab page is designed to be distracting. The grid of most visited sites funnels you into time-sucking holes like YouTube or Facebook.

This extension replaces the default new tab page with a blank space where you can enter a short, custom phrase like "Stop wasting time!" So the next time you open a new tab, you can have a personal message staring you in the face to remind you of what you really want to do.

I'm asking for $5 because that's how much I have to pay the Chrome Web Store before it lets me upload stuff to it. It will be free for everyone to use afterwards.

Oh and I forgot to mention this:

Google's new tab page loads a bunch of stuff

As you can see, the default New Tab is rather bulky. It visits Google.com every time in order to load the logo and search bar. And it loads the thumbnails of your most visited websites. It sounds weird, but try launch Firefox or IE and open a new tab, comparing it with Chrome's new tab. They load instantly while Chrome does not.

Focus loads much less

Focus won't load lots of stuff so you'll get faster New Tabs as a bonus.

Risks and challenges

The extension is already built. I just need 5 bucks to upload it.
