Just like the original new tab, drag and drop a link to the area. This way the link will be placed in the area. Upon insertion, the extension will try to find a proper title for this newly added link. If the title is resolvable from this link, it will be replaced the URL after a few seconds.
Note that currently, there is no support for arranging position of items in the bookmarks bar. You can do the arrangement from chrome://bookmarks/ (Bookmarks Manager). Open this link in a browser tab and re-arrange items. Now refresh your new tab
To remove an item from the bookmarks bar, simply right click over the link and press "Remove this link".
Why does this extension require permission to access all URLs?
Upon inserting a new link in the bookmarks bar, extension tries to resolve the title from the URL. To do this, extension fetches the document of the URL similar to opening it in a new tab and extracts the title from this document. To have access to the fetch API,
all_url permission is required.

After this extension is installed and the new tab is replaced, there is no search-box anymore! how can I do my searches as usual?
The search-box is removed to prevent cluttering your new tab and because there is no need for it! To search just type a phrase in the address-bar and hit the Enter key. This is exactly what the original new tab does. It just changes focus to the address-bar when the built-in search-box is focused.
