Overview: it provides 10+ home widgets, better built-in browser functions and quick search by shortcuts in your new tab page.
The core idea of Re-newtab is to help user quickly find the web pages or web apps that needs to be opened. Bookmarks are an important concept, because they are your own collections and what you need.
Re-newtab also integrates general browser functions, including bookmarks manager, chrome apps, synced tabs, history manager, download files manager, etc.
