In the near future I will have to start syncing my tabs while I'm travelling. A small problem is that I use a custom new tab (html file I load using this extension). So I don't have access to the "Other devices" menu that you would find on the original new tab. This question illustrates what the "Other devices" menu is.

So I've come face to face with the dark side of my minimalism. My question is how do I embed this "Other devices" menu into my custom new tab? Or how do I access it in some other manner?


You can manually go to chrome-internal://newtab to get the original page.

Please note that it is quite possible that Chrome will try to perform a search for "chrome-internal://newtab" if you simply enter the URL into the address bar. However, there should be a second entry that isn't marked as Google Search, which should work as intended.

  • This doesn't work for me, I just get a Google search for that literal text. However, chrome://newtab works for me - but will this override a custom newtab page? – MrWhite May 1 '13 at 10:15
  • @w3d: Yeah, it does a search for me by default as well. But if I enter it into the address bar, there is a second entry, not marked with "Google Search". That is the one you want. chrome://newtab will be overridden by the extension you linked in your post. – Der Hochstapler May 1 '13 at 10:20
  • Yes, there is a second entry in the suggestion dropdown that works. (I'm not the person who asked the question btw. :) – MrWhite May 1 '13 at 11:10
