I was inspired to try this out for myself after reading a Lifehacker article. It’s really pretty simple if you’ve got a hosting account to load all this up to. What you’re seeing above is a screen cap of the version I made for myself. You can see it “live” HERE.
It’s really easy to customize to your own site preferences and background images. The “creator” who originally did this made it as a custom homepage for the iPad but you can really use it for almost any web browser you’d like. I’ve got it running as my homepage in Chrome as well as the new tab page with a little help from the Custom New Tab extension.
