This Chrome Extension Turns New Tabs Into Aerial Art

Want an easy way to liven up your day? Download the new Earth View from Google Maps extension for Chrome. It shows you a striking new satellite image every time you open a new tab, and it’s delightful.

There’s seriously nothing else to it. Once installed, instead of seeing the boring, old, white page and search bar, you’ll see a beautiful aerial shot of a random location on planet Earth along with the location name. There’s not even any lag.

And they are indeed consistently beautiful. Including the airport image above, here are the first six images I saw after installing the extension:
