custom new tab homepage


read me


a startpage is the page you first see when you open your browser. by default your browser will usually show you a built-in "new tab" page, or your homepage (if defined). i wanted to rely less on browser based bookmarks and create my own method to quickly access my most commonly viewed linx. typing in the search box (with the all seeing eye) will live filter the results and reveal hidden linx. use tab then enter to select and navigate to urls. the default submit action on the searchbox will send your query to google (this is easily overridden to the search engine of your choice by adjusting the form action value).

preview (nord theme)

startpage preview


  • create a personalized startpage
  • all assets (fonts, images, css, etc) are embedded directly into the source
  • responsive sizing
  • keyboard-centric ui
  • dynamically searchable
  • support for hidden linx (that reveal on search)
  • easily hosted and updated (either locally or remotely)


  • startpage.html - the main project implementation
  • startpage-nord.html - a colorscheme variant inspired by nord
  • startpage-static.html - the non-javascript version


this targets the newest version of chromium, since that's what i use (with some of the inox patches). i've also tested against the newest firefox and it should work fine with other modern browsers.

if you plan to use this file locally, you'll need the new tab redirect extension. use the file:///home/x0/dotfiles/startpage.html address syntax.

the font base64 encoded and embedded into the source is the classic amiga font topaz - more download options are available here.

these are not {all,} the bookmarks i actually use. i tried to amass a nice large collection for demo purposes to showcase it's dynamic sizing.

since there are no external libs, i used $ to define my dom manipulation functions and _ for the link library. if you plan to fork and extend this with either jquery or underscore.js please take note.
