Before we can create easy interfaces for creating new tabs (bug 458069) we need a blank tab page that will appear when a new tab is opened.

Some ideas for content in this new tab page are:
* Mail
** Recent
** New
** Waiting for Response
* Calendar / Events
** New
** Upcoming
* Search
** Recent Searches

The use cases surrounding the blank tab page are the alternate routes for current systems that open a new tab.  For example search opens a new tab by default so we need to provide an alternate route for searching that starts with opening a new tab and ends with searching.
Marking as blocking, as we need this for bug 458069.

I suspect that Bryan wants to own & drive the design phase of this bug; giving to him.

I think this is going to be m3 / m4 time frame.  I talked with Dan earlier about getting a sprint setup for lots of iterations of this page.  I have that sprint planned for next week in my mind.
