Chrome Speed Dial

I use Google Chrome.  I had been using iGoogle as my home page, but I found that it took too long to load, especially when I just wanted to do a quick Google search.

Chrome has a native quick-dial page that displays whenever you open a new tab.  However, this utility is not very customizable.  It does not permit you to display more than six bookmark thumbnails.

I found a Chrome extension that solved both my problems.  It is called Chrome Speed Dial.  This extension, which displays when I open a new tab, allows me to have as many bookmark thumbnails as I want.

I transferred my iGoogle extensions to Speed Dial, and then I set my home page to Google, instead of iGoogle.  Now, my home page loads much faster.
