Change New Tab Page In Vivaldi
Download A new tab Page extension from chrome.google.com/webstore .
Go to Vivaldi Settings from Panel .
Go to Tabs section.
In New tab section , Select : Specific Page
Enter : chrome://newtab.
After update to 1.8.770.50 (Stable channel) (64-bit) settings of custom new tab page is not working. I have set new tab page to "chrome://newtab" and using momentum extension but vivaldi always land to speed dial page even after this settings.
This looks like a bug, could vivaldi team look into this?
@droidsumit: It's kind of a "feature," not a bug. Developers intentionally disabled Vivaldi from accessing chromium's newtab page because it was doing it in unwanted places. As I understand it, they are looking at some way to let custom speed dial extensions work in spite of it.

chrome://newtabuse the extension's address:
