Summary

Unlike most, this extension allows for changing the color of the background before the URL loads. If no color is set, the color will either be black or white, depending on the system preference for dark/light mode. It also keeps the keyboard focus at the address bar when loading, to make sure written text doesn't get deleted upon loading.

Safety
Risk impact

Custom New Tab is relatively safe to use as it requires very minimum permissions.

Risk likelihood

Custom New Tab is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.
