Chrome's new tab offers the 8 websites you like to visit. Unfortunately for one of the sites,, the main page is a directory, not somewhere I want to go. I would like the thumb to instead open to, taking me directly there instead of the main directory where I would have to manually find /u/.

Anyone know how to make this happen?


Edit: I would like this to happen without totally destroying the new tab's default functionality.

Of the top of my head: use this extension and cusomize your new tab page. It will remove your previous settings but you will have better control ever it. (and yes .. I've read the "edit" :P)

Thanks, this is the best new tab replacement yet. However it loses the auto thumbs, which is disappointing, but... I'll take what I can get, thanks! – Ben Apr 24 '10 at 1:25
