A short while ago I wrote about my dilemma regarding what do I want to see every time I open up Chrome. I was researching several different options and had friends in the community share some others as well and in the process I found tons of great ideas of what I should see when I open up Chrome.
Here’s a link to my original post.
Well, I’ve made a decision that I am happy with (for at least the last 3 weeks!)
And my choice is…
New Tab by Getty Images
“Getty Images brings unparalleled imagery from around the world straight to your browser. Each new tab opens with a beautiful, full-screen photo from Getty Images, creating a visually stunning experience every time”
Here are just a few screenshot examples:
After looking at all the other possible ideas for new tabs or a homepage I realized that most of them were just too busy for me and in the end, I didn’t need any “launch pad” of links. The reason for this really is that I have my Bookmarks Bar pretty well organized with links and folders that I am comfortable with. So, this Getty Images new tab simply just gives me a random new photo each time I load a new tab. The photos are stunning and give me a pause each time a new tab comes up. There are pros and cons to this pause though.
First… it can totally make me forget why in the world I wanted a new tab! This can drive me crazy at times.
But on the other hand… sometimes it feels nice to be taken out of my orbit and think about something else for a moment.
A stunning seaside
A gliding sea turtle
Or a X-Ray of a football player
... all stunning
what's your new tab?
