The iOS 7 New Tab Page Chrome extension replaces the regular new tab page with an interface that can easily be mistaken for iOS 7.
A default set of “apps” on the screen are really just shortcuts to Web sites.
The “App Store” allows you to install additional preconfigured shortcuts to one of the three screens. If you want to delete the apps or rearrange them, clicking on one of the apps for a couple of seconds will cause the icons to shake, just like in iOS 7.
