Google Chrome has a lot of cool features, including a display of your most frequently visited Web sites every time you open a new page or tab. New Tab King brings this same feature to Firefox, making it easy to access your favorite sites.
New Tab King installed as most Firefox add-ons do, without much hassle but requiring a browser restart. Once it was installed, we had only to open a new tab to see it in action. Thumbnails of our most frequently visited sites were displayed in a grid. We could also toggle the view to show our sites in a list, and an RSS option displays the latest items if any of your favorite sites contain feeds. We especially liked that New Tab King lets you specify whether top sites should be selected from the most recent week or month or from all time. Seven attractive background themes are available for customizing the page, and you can also use your own images if desired. A collapsible sidebar contains a small to-do list and links to common Windows applications, such as the Notepad and Calculator. There's a whole slew of extra features, too, including the ability to set search and Web shortcuts, specify the number of sites displayed, and customize the add-on's appearance in the browser. Overall, we found New Tab King to be extremely useful and versatile; it makes it easy to get to frequently accessed sites, but also has plenty of other tools that can streamline your Internet use.
New Tab King installs and uninstalls without issues.
