Description from extension meta

Adds a "open background image in new tab" menu item. Finds closest element to the clicked area that has a background image.

Image from store View background image
Description from store Adds a new menu item to web pages - "open background image in new tab". Will try to find the closest element to the clicked area that has a background image. Tries to mirror Chrome's own "open image in new tab"-functionality, but currently there seems to be no way in Chrome extensions to show a context menu item based on the return value of a function, so currently it is always shown, regardless of the presence of a background image. This extension is open-source and MIT-licensed. Source code can be found at https://github.com/rexxars/view-background-image - contributions are welcome.

  • (2021-05-05) Acroth Dlar: Does not seem to work. I tried reloading the tabs, and restarting Chrome. Tried with several websites.
  • (2020-10-26) Laura Timmel: I've tried a few similar extensions, and so far this is the best one. The other extensions will in some cases open multiple background images from the page (each in a separate tab), whereas this one opens only the image I'm pointing to. As a bonus, this extension is TINY!
  • (2020-09-07) Juan Contreras: 2020 ya no funciona
  • (2020-06-29) Bob Loucks: Yes, it works PERFECTLY fine. Just reload any open existing tabs people before you go writing that it doesn't work. Perhaps less quick to say things don't work without putting in the least bit of effort..
