comment Revert New Tab Page Behavior in Google Chrome 29+
"Broken" using 33.0.1750.146 m. Using anything other than google as the default search just shows the 8 'top sites' only. This is starting to remind me of the Internet Explorer anti-trust days...

Sadly this no longer seems to help in v33.whatever -- even with Bing it's the useless newtabpage, just without a logo. I even made a simple JS page redirecting back to google as an interstitial helper (just so I keep the "benefits" of using Google as my default), no dice.

@DmitryPashkevich this is unfortunately true; you can alternatively use F6 if it helps you get used to it faster, which you might need to since Chrome removed the flag ;)

And if you stumbled here looking for general folder exclusion, note that the ? is to match "period-svn" (.svn), so to to skip everything in folder SkipMe you would use -xr!SkipMe\*

@ColinPickard technically that other article would be a duplicate of this one, as this one is older. They should be merged...
