Google Art Project – Chrome Extension
As my career progresses, I see more apps and services which try to invade my space. Notifications, emails, alerts...everyone wants a piece of me. And I'll level with you: they drive me mad. I want the least amount of interruptions as possible and I want the web interactions I do have to be pleasant. I want to enjoy every tiny piece of my day, which is why I'm so excited to have discovered a new Chrome extension for the Google Art Project.
This awesome Chrome extension shows a piece of classic art when you open a new tab. You don't see the default search screen and you don't see history tiles -- you see a beautiful piece of artwork.
So why do I love this extension so much? I've never counted but I'm sure I open at least 50 to 100 new tabs every day, and seeing art upon each new open makes me smile. Adding beauty in any aspect of life is a plus -- this is one easy way to make yourself smile from time to time. :)
I use a plugin called Benchwarmer which does a similar thing but with tiled dribbble shots (most popular, who your following or just the latest)
I chose nature – Momentum (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/momentum/laookkfknpbbblfpciffpaejjkokdgca) with beautiful photos, but this plugin looks also interesting.
It looks good.
I want the same add-on in Firefox!
