Incredible StartPage is an awesome replacement of Chrome's "new tab" page. The new start page shows your bookmarks, recently closed tabs and a notepad in once place, along with a customizable theme.
The first thing you may want to do is to customize your background. Click the "theme options" button on the bottom left corner to open the theme menu. You can choose the background color and a background image from several Flickr categories.
The large frame on the right displays bookmarks from your Bookmark Bar. You can move the items by drag and drop. If you want to put more bookmarks in the frame, you can drag bookmarks from the bookmark browser:
The closed tabs browser is a simple way to get back accidentally closed tabs. Note Chrome currently does not suppport restoring tab history from extensions, so it only restores the last page loaded in the tab.
Finally, there is a handy notepad for you to take short notes. You can send the notes to Gmail /Calender in one click!
That's it. Have a try and tell us what you think!
