    Pros: 

    Easy to install

    Cons: 

    Lack's personalisation

    It's a very nice idea for whoever likes NATGEO (who doesn't??).

    Way better than the current dull default background of Chrome.

    Chen Friedman has used this product for one day.

Just installed this, love the beautiful image that comes up 🙌🏾 Would be nice if it was random though instead of the same one each time.

Just installed it. First impression: Wonderful, but definitely needs an overlay with the short description text that can be found on NG. The fotos are so interesting, you always want to read the text, but I don't want to have to go the NG site to get it. Especially because I opened a browser window to go someplace completely different. I like the one stop photo detour, but not the photo-text two stop detour.

@petra_quilitz thanks for trying it out Petra! I did have the text overlayed in an earlier version. I decided to get rid of it because I liked to see the text only once (usually the first time I see the photo) - all other times it was just noise. PS1: you can click on the natgeo logo that takes you to the description on NatGeos website. PS2: I can DM you a previous version if you like :)

@madhavanmalolan Ah I see, although, why not make it small then. What I learned from my work in the design industry: there is this first reaction gut instinct about a concept that is usually right. The hard part is to later refine a design without overwriting that gut feeling. If you initially had the text then that was the correct concept to go with. The later design phase should find a way to work with this concept but not eliminating it. (The design should fit the concept, not the concept the design) - And like I said, I don't want to go to the NG site to get the description. Users are lazy creatures :) - Thanks for the offer of sending the other version, but I have about a million things on my todo list and absolutely no time for any of this really (that's why I'm here. Procastination..... :)

@neilsardesai Thanks Neil! I'm glad you don't think it sucks. This is the best I could do with my (highly) limited design skills 😅😅

I open a lot of new tabs throughout my working day. I like this extension a lot, but an option that allows us to choose between showing today's image of the day, or previous random ones, would be really cool. (If possible)
