Flickr Tab (official) is a free Google Chrome extension. This extension opens a random image fetched from Flickr in new tab of Google Chrome. So, you will find a beautiful image in front of you whenever any new tab is opened by you. Apart from showing you a beautiful image, you can also jump to the source location of that particular image by giving a single tap. This will also let you explore more images posted by the owner.
It is a very simple extension for Chrome, but it is very useful to turn the boring new tab into something interesting and purposeful.
You can see a beautiful image in new tab of my Google Chrome browser fetched by this extension.
