This lightweight Chrome extension allows you to specify a homepage for the incognito window, which is not possible with the Chrome browser by default.
- Set homepage for the incognito mode.
- Option to redirect homepage for only the first incognito tab of the window.
Incognito Homepage requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution
when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.
Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact
extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like
stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk
impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn
malicious, they can be very harmful.
Incognito Homepage may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust
Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious.
This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store,
the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the
Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we
discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution
when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or
higher risk likelihood.
Doesn't actually, um.... you know.... work. The modal that asks for a URL flickers a lot and sometimes makes my typing be backwards: I type "about:blank" but it comes out as "knalb:touba", until I fight with it for a while or just paste the URL. Then it turns "about:blank" info "http://about:blank" which isn't a valid URL. Then, finally, when I bring up incognito mode, the browser still opens to the default incognito home page, and the home button does the same thing. I just want it to open a blank page..... why can't it do that, chrome? Why?
The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that
a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able
to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension
is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities
without any good reason).
