Frequently Asked Questions

Turn Off New Tab Mode

BattleTabs is best played in your browser New Tabs, but if you want to disable the game from replacing the default Google search bar on new tab pages, you can turn it off from the Options page.

Step 1: Click on the Options button on the upper left hand corner of the screen

Step 2: Check the option “Don’t replace the New Tab page”

You will still be able to play the game by clicking on the browser button. Let me know if any questions!

Use Other New Tab Extensions

If you want to set your new tab pages to use other extensions, follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the new tab option in options: (here’s how)
  2. Disable the new tab extension you want to use in Chrome, then Enable it again (or you can uninstall it and then install it again). See instructions here on how you can disable/enable an extension - follow the steps but do it with the new tab extension you want to use (not Battle Tabs)

Basically, the last new tab extension you install should become the active one. We are trying to see if we can make this process easier.

Updates are automatically pushed to everyone by the Chrome Web Store.

However, not everyone will get it at the same time, and it could take hours before your version is updated to the latest.

Step 1: Right click on the Battle Tabs browser button, and click on Manage Extensions

Step 2: Click on the Developer mode toggle to enable more options

Step 3: Click on Update
