  1. That is exactly what I have done and it works when starting google. But how about the add New Tab. I don’t know if there is a way to disable most viewed pages there.

  2. @ ru

    Use the incognito browsing option:

    goto: customize and control > new incognito window… or

  3. As other posters have pointed out, this blog post is incomplete. It still shows the most recently viewed on “New Tab”. Is there any way to stop this.
    Tntone’s suggestion was “use incognito browsing”. I don’t want to have to remember to do this each time I visit certain pages.

  4. This is a very easy fix.
    When using IE, click on the little wrench.
    Under “Web Browsing Tools”, uncheck “Enable the new Google tab page”. Click “Save”. That should do it. :0)

  5. Firefox is doing the same thing now. All merchants want to condition you to accept being constantly watched, constantly monitored, constantly controlled. They know that your opinion doesn’t really mean shit- your children will grow to accept it even if you don’t. Good luck.
