It's been sitting like that1 for months. My work machine populates them fine.

Edit: Google Chrome Version 4.0.249.892

Edit 2: (Possibly related) Chrome is not storing any history

Chrome not storing history is the problem, the most visited websites are based on how often they come up in your history. If you are intentionally blocking chrome from storing your history then try turning your history on and visiting the sites you want on the new tab page then turning it off again(I do not know how to turn it on or off on command). If its unintentional then it seems like that would be your main problem.

Then we just have to figure out how to get Chrome to store history. –  Ian Boyd Mar 2 '10 at 1:41
    
i cleared my browsing history, and reset Chrome options to defaults, and now it's storing history - and tabs. You win. –  Ian Boyd Mar 2 '10 at 1:45
    
Glad I could be of help. The "You win" is a nice touch too :) –  MESLewis Mar 2 '10 at 14:52
