Shutterstock Tab is a Chrome extension to customize the new tab page of your Chrome browser with Shutterstock images, time, weather, recently visited sites. With every new tab that you open in your Chrome browser, you will be greeted with a beautiful picture from Shutterstock’s collection. Apart from that you will also see the current time and the weather for the day. At the bottom right of this new tab, you will see all your recently visited sites.
The below screenshot shows the new tab page of my Chrome browser after installing this extension.
Installing this extension is pretty easy, like with any other extension of Chrome. You can get the link of this extension at the end of this article. Click the link and when you get to the page of the extension, click on add to chrome button. This will add this extension to your Chrome browser.

The Shutterstock Tab extension is pretty nice, as it turns your new tab page into a beautiful customized page. The images from Shutterstock add to the beauty, as they are high quality, incredible images. The additional information of time and weather make it even better.
I really enjoyed this extension so far, and looking at the images is not bad on the eyes either. If you guys are not using any extension or app to customize your Chrome browser, then do try this extension out, for a non-complicated experience.
