New Tab Win 8.1

Unread post by O Really » Wed Oct 21, 2015 10:52 am

So, "New Tab" is supposed to show an array of recent/frequent sites visited, that makes a convenient short-cut. For a long time, Blue Ridge Debate was shown on that page, along with other sites I use frequently. For some reason, it quit picking up BRD, even though it still picks up other places visited less frequently or even less recently. For example, New Tab currently shows Yahoo, a couple of client sites, bank site, TVGuide, A-CT, none of which were accessed as recently as BRD, plus one site accessed only once. Any ideas/suggestions?

Which browser are you using?
When I was a small girl, I dreamt of standing in a room, looking at a girl who was and was not myself, who stood looking at another girl who was and was not myself. My mother took this as a nightmare. I saw it as the beginning of a career in physics.

Chrome. I've used Chrome pretty much exclusively for years.

OK, so I answered my own question. Get "Modern New Tab Page" extension from the Chrome store.

Good, I generally avoid Chrome... so I'm not much help there. The built in "New Tab Pages" in any browser I've not liked, they don't seem to keep track of the places I actually visit very well.
