Google Chrome Is Preparing a Widget with Shopping Ads on the New Tab Pagehttps://9to5google.com
Google Chrome’s new tab page is clean and simple on computers, but it seems that may soon change. An experiment in newer versions of Chrome shows that Google is working on a widget for the new tab page that would show, possibly among other things, what are essentially shopping ads.
When this feature is fully enabled, it adds a fairly sizeable widget underneath your site shortcuts. This widget pulls from your Google Search history to recommend that you “continue searching” for products that you’ve recently been researching. Google’s built-in example highlights office chairs, but technically this should work for any product.
