New Tab is the new FOLDER.HTT .
FOLDER.HTT is a Windows 98 feature that allows you to customize any file folder to show a webpage when opened.

Here's what I did, circa 2002 (screenshot taken in 2011).
It has a dynamic clock, music, and links to various folders.
There's no weather because back then we find out weather by looking at the sky.
There's no Google search because back then we search information in encyclopedia CD-ROM.
