  • (2019-10-14) Alejandro Quinche: i can't add the local images folder
  • (2018-01-25) Avishek Das: Great stuff. But a few usability issues are present. 1. there should be a shortcut to the settings page on the new tab page itself. 2. the search/logo feature should be more customizable. currently there is no way to change its position or appearance. 3. there should be an option to select a single local image file. 4. there should be an option to select the background color. currently there is no way to change it from the default black. 5. a shortcut/button to go to the next image immediately should be on the new tab page itself. 6. there needs to be a "tile" option for image sizing. 7. he image timing slider should display the values while sliding or allow direct value input.
  • (2017-01-06) jeff notell: I like "Dynamic new tab" - can be set to a local folder, and show a different diagram each time. I moved the logo image to upper right, made it open a page - got the page, css and js from "Humble New Tab Page" extension, which gives much more info. good combo, not hard if you know javascript

  • (2018-11-10, v:0.0.3) CMP: How does "Local Directory" work in Options?
    I'd like to be able to add my own photos. Is that what "Local Directory" is for in Options? If so, how does that work?
  • (2018-09-06, v:0.0.3) James Di Paolo Smith: How do I add custom backgrounds?
    I'll keep it simple. I don't understand how to add custom backgrounds to this extension. I love the idea of what it is supposed to do, but I don't understand how to achieve this. I already have a bunch of pictures saved to my computer that I want as a chrome background, but I don't know how to reference them using this extension. Can it be done through the folder that they are saved on my computer? Do I have to post them online to reference them? In which case, how would I go about doing that?
