Support browser_url_overrides to allow customized net tab page, etc. (since users can't set their own choice of new tab page...)
Edge currently offers very few options for controlling the new tab experience, and the ones it does have are... not popular, judging by the Windows Insider feedback. Allowing extensions to override things like New Tab page would simultaneously address this concern and allow more Chrome extensions to be ported, making Edge a much nicer browser to use.

It's ridiculous that this isn't even planned. I don't understand how this is even an issue. No other browser is missing this crucial feature.. It's what is forcing me to stay with Chrome/FF/Opera/Vivaldi/Whatever.
since this is not supported and support not planned, what's the alternative approach to override new tab content? It's the core of the extension I'm trying to port, already in Chrome and Firefox stores.
The default new tab page on Edge is terrible, and it's great that Chrome lets you customize this. I would like this for Edge.
