  • (2022-06-21) Xia-Wei Chen: Sooooo beautiful!! I am so happy that I found this. Thank you so much! So happy that 5 centimeters per second is included! Kimi no na wa warms my heart, And 5 centimeters per second shatters it again. But I love the emotions and feelings of the story.
  • (2022-05-23) i prefer a minor chord: absolutely love this <3 live playback is really nice and just what i was looking for Edit: recently my wallpapers are not loading. Specially in the daytime. all i have done is removed the "to do" thing and only selected garden of words. it was working fine about a month ago but now all i see is a blank screen with a clock at the bottom :( Edit 2: The issue seems to be fixed and I'm blessed every day :D

  • (2021-10-20) Volkan GÜZEL: Muhteşem bir yeni sekme uygulaması. Her yeni sekme açtığınızda 5 cm/s, Garden of Words ve Your Name animelerinden özenle seçilmiş, hoş görünen gifler çıkıyor. Işık, bulanıklık ve kontrast ayarlarının da yapılabilmesi güzel bir detay olmuş.
  • (2021-10-06) •мαяιи•: I really like this extension and I expect more wallpapers especially 天気の子 / Weathering with you and also consider live wallpapers from animes outside of Shinkai Makoto.

  • (2021-12-02, v:1.7.2) Ethan Su: Bookmark Bar Missing From New Tab
    I'd like to have the toggle (like the clock toggle built in to the extension) for keeping the default functionality of a new tab in chrome when making a new tab to have the bookmark bar show up even if I have it hidden. Right now I have to use the bookmark bar shortcut [ctrl + shift + b] to open and close it every time I open a new tab and it gets pretty annoying.
  • (2020-06-29, v:1.7.2) Ivo Pablo: Novos Wallpapers
    Seria interessante adicionar novos wallpapers ao pacote, não acha? Papéis de parede do filme Tenki no Ko por exemplo, é uma boa sugestão!! Ótimo trabalho!
