I used to use Safari as my default browser but it lagged a lot for me and so I switched to Google Chrome again. I love Chrome and with its great performance and availability of huge number of extensions and apps, I don’t think I will be switching to any other browser. I haven’t used any New Tab extension for Chrome until I came across Embark.


Embark is a minimalistic new tab page for Chrome designed by James Moss. Embark replaces your Chrome’s default new tab page with a new page that shows a digital clock with a beautiful background that changes every time you open a new tab.

Embark is just like Momentum but with less features and loads very fast. You can also tweak the New tab page. Embark lets you switch between 12-hour and 24-hour time format. You can also change the transparency of the border and the time from the Embark settings page. It also allows you to display the current date and you can also change the format of the date. You can also change the position of the date which can by either at the top or the bottom of the page.
