Earth View from Google Earth
If you have ever tried Google Earth then you know it is really amazing. Google has grabbed tons of awesome images of earth with its satellites and Earth View from Google Earth selects the best ones and shows you every time you open a new tab. Along with the image, you’ll find the origin of that image. These images can be used as desktop backgrounds too.
Wallcat is as simple as an extension gets. Just add it in the browser and you’ll get one high definition image every day as wallpaper in your new tab page. It has 3 channels or categories for wallpapers – I recommend “Fresh Air” as I didn’t find others quite eye-catching, but you may like them. So, try on your own and decide the best one to get one awesome wallpaper every day. So what do you think of these gorgeous extensions that serve the sole purpose of making Chrome beautiful?
