What is IFrame New Tab?
IFrame New Tab is a Chrome extension that allows you to embed a full-screen iframe into your new tab page.

The address bar retains focus, and scrollbars can be hidden for a seamless experience.

Summary

This extension allows you to embed a full-screen iframe into your new tab page containing a website of your choice. By embedding a website as opposed to redirecting to a URL, you don't have to wait for the tab to load before typing anything into the search bar. The address bar will keep its focus (unlike on redirect), allowing you to start typing immediately without having to click anything. Optionally you can also prevent the iframe from scrolling to hide any scrollbars. Because this extension uses an iframe, not all websites will allow themselves to be embedded. This includes websites like google.com and many other big-name service providers that would rather you visit their sites directly. This project is open source and released under the MIT license.

Great extension! 1. Is it possible to a small floating popup on the home page to let us re-configure the url easily? 2. Now if we open a dark page, the flashing of the light blank screen is killing my eyes. Would that be configurable? 3. Is it possible we configure cors like some other extensions do? In this way we won't need to install multiple extensions
