Photos of our planet from various subreddits, including /r/earthporn and others

Image from store tab.pics
Description from store Beautiful photos of our planet in every new tab. Each photo is sourced from the users of http://reddit.com/r/earthporn and credit goes to each user for every photo. **** Note ***** The app asks for your frequently visited websites so they can be optionally shown over top of the image. A lot of people have requested this feature, so I have added it as an option. This information is only used locally, on your own computer. I do not retain this data. Updates: 1.0.1 - Make the tab title SFW :) 1.0.0 - New name, source photos from multiple subreddits, enable recent sites and turn off title 0.0.5 - Updated image request stability 0.0.1 - First build!

  • (2021-06-16) Casey Wurst: I LOVE this extension, however, lately with the newest version of Chrome, I'm suddenly getting issues where the same pic will show up on a few tabs in a row, and then every other image seems to come up as a black screen with large blurry text reading "The image you are requesting does not exist or is no longer available. imgur.com" Really hope this gets fixed, because it truly is the best extension!
  • (2018-02-23) Upendra Rana: I am glad it's back now :)
  • (2018-02-16) Michael Kairys: As can be seen on the Support tab, this extension no longer works in chrome (as of some time in the last few months) and appears to be abandoned by the developer, who has not updated it in almost three years and has not responded to contact attempts or support requests. For a replacement I recommend "Dream Afar New Tab".
  • (2018-01-11) Richard Fleming: no pic showing on chrome home screen
  • (2017-01-30) Nic Altobelli: i <3 ryan
  • (2017-01-21) Александр Кондрашов: With "Enable most visited websites" scroll bar appears. Sometimes new tab is just black screen with just "Settings" link at bottom right corner. (Without author and photo) Rarely I got this as a picture: "The image you are requesting does not exist or is no longer available. imgur.com". P.S. I use all image sources enabled. Sometimes picture changes not every new tab. I can get 15 tabs with one picture in a row. It's a beautiful extension! If you can fix this bugs I'll change my mark to 5 start
  • (2017-01-20) Ravi Gadhwana: Really Beautiful. Must have for peaceful mind.

  • (2015-03-22) Nelson Chuang: Beautiful pictures but why does it need access to list of my frequently visited websites?
  • (2015-03-12) Prayag Singh: Please provide an option to show bookmarks only on the new tab page. Otherwise the pictures are fantastic :)

  • (2018-10-03, v:1.0.1) Bill DePhillips: Firefox port: Source of the images
    Hey I loved this extension but recently moved to Firefox. I'm just curious what API or URL you used to get the images so I could replicate in Firefox. Thanks again for this great extension!
  • (2018-02-15, v:1.0.1) Charles N: Last image recall
    +1 on Sishil's comment. I often open a new tab and quickly load a page before really appreciating an image. I'd love to be able to go back one tab to see what I had looked at.
  • (2018-02-12, v:1.0.1) Danielle Alexander: Stopped Randomizing
    Like other users have reported, it seems tab.pics has stopped pulling different pictures. I'm stuck on a rather dull one: https://www.reddit.com/r/seaporn/comments/2pcs3o/vacation_in_polynesia_tetiaroa_atoll_oc1936c1288/
  • (2018-02-12, v:1.0.1) Danielle Alexander: Minimum Resolution or Vote Parameter
    Most of the pictures that get pulled in are awesome, but around 10% are blurry or overall not that great. It'd be awesome to be able to filter out pictures that don't meet a minimum resolution, or that don't meet a minimum reddit vote count, to ensure the best quality pictures are used.
  • (2018-02-11, v:1.0.1) What Happened?
    Looks like it just doesn't work anymore? This was my favorite chrome extension. What happened? Can you please bring it back?
  • (2018-01-26, v:1.0.1) Michael Kairys: Stopped working today
    I've been using tab.pics fpr several months and really liked it. But today it has quit working. I don't get any pictures, just a black screen. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling etc.
  • (2018-01-22, v:1.0.1) Bruce B: Same picture every time.
    I get the same picture over and over. This one: https://www.reddit.com/r/EarthPorn/comments/4vv14q/snow_lake_near_snoqualmie_pass_wa_oc5472_3648/
  • (2018-01-21, v:1.0.1) Taylor: Same pic
    Same picture, not changing.
  • (2018-01-18, v:1.0.1) Sandra Mikus: notworking

  • (2018-01-16, v:1.0.1) Teddy Yang: tab.pic is down
