Homely is a fast and light New Tab page replacement, with a focus on providing quick access to links, bookmarks and history from a centralised location.

The main links page can be built up using a number of blocks, containing simple button shortcuts, or dropdown menus with rich collections of links.  Editing the page can be done visually with the built-in editor, or coded manually in JSON.

A lightweight bookmarks browser is included, providing fast navigation through all folders in the bookmarks tree.  A history dropdown in the top corner shows recently accessed pages for quick retrieval.

The settings panel provides a number of options for tweaking the page, including custom backgrounds and fonts, enabling/disabling features, and adding custom CSS code.
