== FAQ ==
Q: How can I add my own links and images?
A: Unlock the grid, then click on an empty tile. This will open the Tile Editor which is fairly straight forward.
Q: How can I hide the search bar at the top?
A: Go to Settings (cog wheel on the left) and set the search bar option to "Off".
Q: What is Sphere?
A: Sphere is a personalized content discovery experience, recommending interesting content from around the web, tailored to your interests. You can add Sphere to your Awesome New Tab Page by dragging one of the available Sphere widgets out of the Widgets window onto your dashboard.
Q: Can I remove the stock widgets from the home screen?
A: Of course! Unlock the grid, then press the "X" icon when you mouse over any tile you wish to delete. Be sure to click the red padlock to lock the page again so you can click your tiles.
Q: Can I uninstall apps with this extension?
A: Yep! Ensure your dashboard is locked (the padlock should be white/grey), open the Apps window, then click Uninstall. A confirmation will appear.
Q: Can I uninstall stock apps and widgets?
A: No, they're bundled in this extension and can not be removed without removing this extension. You can remove them from your home screen, of course. They're also listed last in the apps and widgets windows.
Q: Can I change the background color?
A: Yes, click the cog wheel in the top left. Click the Background Color button to open a color picker that will allow you to select any color you desire.
Q: How is this extension different than Speed Dial, Speed Dial 2, or other new tab page (or start page) extensions?
A: In essence: Speed Dial and Speed Dial 2 have no widgets and isn't as customizable or powerful as Awesome New Tab Page. Other startpage extensions don't offer this or any similar functionality. However, don't take my word for it; compare for yourself!
Q: How do I remove this extension and go back to the default Google Chrome new tab page?
A: In the top right corner, click the Wrench Icon. Go to Tools > Extensions. Find this extension and remove it. Be sure to also remove any widgets you installed.
Q: This is a lot like iGoogle. How is it different?
A: iGoogle is a Google product that, just like ANTP, lets other developers create widgets that are added to your homepage. However, unlike iGoogle, Awesome New Tab Page is also optimized more for visual appeal and function. iGoogle is also being discontinued by Google.
