If you're like me, and use the pre-release version of Chrome, you would already have this feature. But it's great to announce that the latest stable version of Google's super-popular web browser, Chrome, includes the redesigned New Tab homepage.

Google announced that "it's more streamlined, so it's easier to access and organize your apps in different sections on the page". The new homepage shows thumbnails of the websites you visit most (hopefully TweakTown is first! *wink*) and you can also see your 'recently closed' pages at the bottom right of the page, this allows you to restore a closed tab or window.

You can add more apps to your New Tab page by clicking on the Chrome Web Store icon, and the Web Store also rocks a makeover as of today. Apps and extensions are now being presented in a wall of images that's updated every time you visit the store. If you'd like to check out the official video from Google demonstrating its New Tab homepage layout, check it out below:
