New Tab King is a Firefox add-on that takes advantage of the blank space that appears when you open a new tab. It fills the gap with your most frequently visited sites, giving you immediate access to your favorites and a whole lot more.

When you open a new tab, you'll see a list of websites, ordered from your most frequently visited to the least. On the right there's a Sidebar, which contains New Tab King's to-do List, Sites You'll Love, sharing options, recently closed tabs and some application shortcuts.

Your most visited website list can be modified, removing the websites you don't want, or editing the description of the ones you do. New Tab King also provides analytics on how often you have visited each site, and you can choose to order your most-used websites by month, week or ever.

New Tab King also has great configuration options, so you can control exactly what appears on your tab, add new shortcuts and generally make the add-on work for you. In addition, you'll be able to choose from a variety of New Tab King skins, or upload your own image, making it attractive as well as functional.

This version of New Tab King is great - and a serious improvement on its predecessor!

Changes

  • Bug fix for not showing the recently closed tabs on first new tab
  • Bug fix for not showing custom background
  • Adding a ton of new search engines for the configuration
