Yes, I know. I had enabled NTP & did not want it disabled! But, gave it a try just to see what the results might be. Now, I'm not happy since, cannot re-enable NTP. Now, I'll have to take some other thing from the Chrome Store. Oh well, was nice while it lasted. I do not like the Edge C default New tab page, at all. There was no problem being shown just, something interesting; sorry you misunderstood. Anyway, have to find something, now, so I can have a New tab page I can tolerate (again).
Ok, since NTP is dead, now.... instead, I have grabbed this extension from the Chrome Store. It does the job of making the New tab page subjectively appealing & tolerable. I tried every one available. This one does exactly what I wanted, fundamentally. And, also, it's very easy to use and personalize, has heaps of custom choices and VERY nice features & simple, intuitive functionality. I highly recommend this one:exclamation_mark:
Seriously, if you are looking for a more likable NTP, this is, really, appealing! It is just great what it offers & what you can do/have with it. A super alternative to the default NTP.
