What's all this stuff on the Chrome new tab window?

I think that's pretty darn cool!

The new tab window is where the fun all starts on Chrome for mobile devices. Not only can you access pages you have open on your desktop, but you can also get pretty easy access to the pages you visit most and your bookmarks from here.
