blank home page - How to Start Chrome Android Always Start with Blank Page 3

Time Needed : 3 minutes

By default, Google Chrome Android will start with a default tab page with tons of news and web shortcuts. However, you can change that into a blank page which theoretically faster since it does not contains content. It also won't reveal the most visited pages on your Chrome. Here's how to enable the about:blank in the Chrome Android homepage.

  1. Launch the Chrome app, and then click on the three dots icon.

While the homepage is now set to launch the about:blank page, the new tab will appear by default. This means you cannot change the appearance of the new tab page on this platform. However, such capability as removing quick links is available on the Google Chrome desktop.

We probably have to wait sometime until Chrome Android has wider options to modify the homepage and new tab page respectively.
