Hi folks! I’m Kesava, and this is my first ‘product’. Thank you to all the makers on Product Hunt for inspiring me to learn programming and develop something. 🙌 Every time you open a new tab, Newton will show a quote from someone famous (or infamous) and prompt you to guess its source. To know if you guessed right, hover the mouse pointer on ❓ to know who said it and click to see more quotes from that person. Why did I create something that, as a friend said, has no productivity benefit? Well, I wanted something that made me think, smile a bit, try to jog my memory (it's not what it used to be, sadly) and then get out of the way so I could get back to work. I wanted it to run fast and take up as little bandwidth as possible. And I 💕 quotes. Newton is completely free, and will always be. I learnt a little about developing Chrome extensions just to make this, so feedback will be appreciated and enthusiastically responded to. Let me know what you think. 🙏 P.S. Why call it Newton? For lack of a meaningful reason, it stands for "new tab extension". I just like the name. 😋

@k3sava This is a coincidence! I have just been getting my hands wet with Google Chrome extension development too! :D Looks cool, hoping to see more, Kesava!

@arunsathiya Same here mate! Just learnt a few bits and pieces to develop this, but now I'm hooked. Looking forward to figuring out Javascript and do some magic with it... :)
