Summary

Replaces the default new tab page with a selection of trending GIFs, or a single random GIF based on your keyword of choice. Copy and paste your favorites right from the page, every time you open a new tab. The GIFs displayed are hand-curated by GIPHY, so you can stay up to date on what's fresh, and discover new favorites.

GIFs are downsampled and typically cached by your browser, so this extension should not use excessive bandwidth.


Changelog:

1.4.3:

  • Faster loading of GIFs

1.4.1:

  • Better GIF quality for single GIF view

User reviews
This extension is ok; has a couple of bugs: -A lot of the gif's have poor resolution, are blurry, or have a haze sitting on top of the images. -The calendar on the tab is wrong and you can't edit it; at least, I haven't figured out a way to do it. Otherwise, I am ok with it; it basically does what it says it will do, but it could do it better: -They could fix the problem with the calendar; write in a feature to link with the internet time and date. -Choose the gif's played on the tab with more discretion. -Provide a feedback link on the tab. -support multiple monitors.
