As for the newer Versions, the browser settings are not reachable through chrome-internal://... etc., here is a pretty simple solution:

  1. Install New Tab Redirect extension for Google Chrome
  2. Set the redirect page in the extension options to "about:blank" or whatever you like (see image below)
