I needed an extension that allows me to create my own categories of sites I visit all the time but safe and easy to use. Then I chose Speed Dial over others because of it's simplicity and convenience I can't do without!
I've been using FVD Speed Dial for a number of years on both Chrome, and Mozilla. Frankly, I love it. FVD makes quick navigation to my regularly visited sites very easy, and keeping desktop and laptop synced up is easy.
This is my favorite new tab page ever!!! It's fantastic. I haven't used the 3D option much yet, so I can't comment on that, but the default setup is great. It's very customizable, easy to use!, and looks great!!
