Google Chrome: Load Multiple Pages at Startup

Posted September 2, 2008 by Rob Rogers in Google

If you’re like me, you visit the same pages everytime you open your browser. Chrome can be configured to load multiple pages at startup.

1. Open Google Chrome.

2. Click the wrench icon in the upper-right corner of the toolbar and select Options.

3. On the Basics tab, go to the On startup section.

4. Select the Open the following pages radio button.

5. Click the Add button to select sites from your history. Click the Use Current to add the pages that the browser currently has opened.

6. Click the Close button.

    Is there anyway to randomise the hompage so it picks one from that list and opens that

    This is limited to what shows in your history when you pull it up from options, basic, etc it only comes up with todays history and not all of your history to choose from. That is the problem i’m having I’ll have a bunch of pages open and if the browser gets closed only a specific amount of pages will open and not all that I had open. I need a plugin or something that will save all open pages as bookmarks and one that opens all pages I currently have open.

    How can I stop Google Chrome from loading multiple pages? All of a sudden it started loading my selected home page plus 3 instances of I cannot get it to stop. There is no “wrench” icon in the upper right hand corner of my toolbar, and I do not have an “options” selection.
