can an extension customize the new tab start page?


  • Am I able to write an IE9 extension that replaces the new tab start page with something else entirely? For one, I would like to have an entry field for search text.

  • Yes, Google used to do that in its Google Toolbar plugin (overriding the user's new tab page preference), and Microsoft asked Google to stop.

    You can design your own new tab page, and ask the user to set it as the new tab page. It is like the homepage, replacing it without asking the user is annoying.
