Re-newtab is a Chrome extension - A redesigned, productive and pragmatic new tab alternative. You can install it from Chrome Web Store. Privacy see here.

This extension provides 19 desktop widgets, plus bookmarks manager, history manager, extensions manager, downloaded files manager and quick search function in your new tab page (so chrome will show you these permissions when you install it).
