Not sure where/what "Focused New Tab" is but I think what you're asking is to be able to Pin sites to the NTP without them being changed by your browsing behavior or what sites you visit most frequently
Thanks for getting back on this. What I meant is this page. Sorry ... I am not sure how this tab/page is described best. It only has the 'Bing Search bar' and then a number of 'Quick Links'.
My suggestion refers to this page and the idea is to have a fixed set of Quick Links there. Opera has something named 'Speed Dial'. Quite handy I must say. A Google search on Opera Speed Dial will show what I meant.
