APODtab: A Better New Tab Screen

APODtab chrome extension

I created and published my first Google chrome extension yesterday. You may be aware of NASA’s astronomy picture of the day – a new astro-photo released by NASA everyday. I was bored of the standard new tab screen in chrome and thought a great replacement would be the current APOD for that day. I developed the idea so that you can scroll back through past APODs too, as well as clicking to reveal information about the image. It’s a nice simple implementation that uses the full screen. If you want to see breathtaking space images every time you open a new tab, why not give my APODtab chrome extension a try?
