This tutorial explains how to view Instagram likes, popular images, profile pics, feeds, or pics of people following in every new tab of Google Chrome.

This task is made possible by a handy extension, named as ‘Flume New Tab‘. It lets you connect your Instagram account with this extension and select a source (username, My Feed, My Likes, etc.) to view Instagram images in a new tab of Google Chrome. You can either view a single image or multiple images (as tiles) in the new tab. Apart from this, it also provides the feature to set the refresh interval to automatically change the image.

Earlier, I covered some similar extensions, like Flickr tab and Pinterest Tab, but this extension is more useful. Reason is that while other such extensions show only some random images, Flume New Tab extension lets you select the source to view images, and adjust other settings.

This extension comes with a new idea which is really interesting. However, you might experience some trouble to use few of its options. For example, it might fail to show a single image of your Profile and pic of people following you. Only multiple images can be viewed in the form of tiles in new tab. But, for the rest of the sources, this extension worked perfectly.
