I have a similar question about firefox in SU.

I'm using Stylish extension and I have changed the style of many websites to dark. When I open a link on a new tab, before the page loads, Chrome is showing a blank page with white background. How can I change this white color to a different one. Is there a CSS selector for it? Does chrome support something like userChrome.css file in Firefox?

On my box (ubuntu 12+) custom css is possible:

~/.config/chromium/Default/User\ StyleSheets/Custom.css

As for now, it's not (yet) possible for chrome://newtab/ , see http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/override.html for more information.

Thank you very much. I didn't have to do so much work. I opened this file: C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets\Custom.css and wrote this line: body { background: #373739 } Worked just fine. The wonderful thing is that I don't have to restart Chrome for this settings to apply. It will work as soon as I hit save. – Alireza Noori Aug 15 '12 at 6:50
