Having a lovely image on our screens makes us smile and feel more productive. It can sometimes make us calm down when we’re having a bad day. That’s why having a wallpaper extension on your Chrome browser is a brilliant idea, especially if it’s with someone smiling back at you.
We’ve composed a list of some of the best wallpaper extensions for Chrome. While they present random images when you open a new tab, some of them have tools to increase productivity. For instance, you can add notes or tasks to focus on while researching or working online.
Top Chrome extensions for trending wallpapers
When you ask Chrome to open a new tab, you’ll usually see the Google search engine and theme. The Charli D’Amelio Wallpapers New Tab extension changes the default settings, giving you free wallpapers of this TikTok artist instead. Every time you open a new tab, you’ll see a new random image from the collection.
There’s more to it than wallpapers, though. You’ll also see games and other media, or you can change the settings. There are affiliate links below the search bar if you want to engage with some of the content.
If you’re obsessed with Friday Night Funkin, try out this FNF wallpaper extension for Chrome. Every new tab presents an exciting wallpaper from the FNF games, showcasing Boyfriend against his enemies. Should you like specific ones, you can select them as the main images to randomly appear.
Another feature lets you quickly add a note to your browser so you can recall it later. There are links for shortcuts to your social media platforms and email. Also, you can download any of the free wallpapers to your PC or share them online.
Here’s a Chrome extension I decided to keep after testing it. Motiontabs – Best Live Wallpaper Experience presents new live wallpapers for each tab, making you feel positive and productive for the day ahead. While it only has a few enabled at the start, you can download more from its library or upload your own in MP4 format.
There are only a few settings you can change, but it adds shortcut links at the bottom to your most visited sites. You’ll also see your location at the time, while you can click on a button to read more details about the wallpaper that’s live on your screen.
While BTS is still deciding if they want to be a band or not, you can still reminisce about the good time with the BTS Bangtan Boys Wallpaper Chrome extension. The shuffle feature randomizes images of the pop band, changing with each new tab. Obsessed fans will probably spend more time opening tabs than actually searching for something online.
This wallpaper extension also lets you quickly add notes or check the time at the bottom of the window. You can also place shortcuts to websites you use regularly so you don’t have to paste the URL every time. As an extra option, there’s a themes button where you can see what else is available.
Do you remember Charli D’Amelio Wallpapers New Tab mentioned earlier? The Indie Aesthetic Wallpapers New Tab extension for Chrome is made by the same people, namely, LovelyTab. It features some of the top wallpapers from the Indie scene, making you feel at peace while you’re researching.
The other features are pretty much the same. You’ll have access to LovelyTab’s library of games, or you can switch to one of its other themes. You’ll once again see affiliate links under the search bar.
LovelyTab strikes again with the Cute Kawaii Aesthetic Wallpaper New Tab Chrome extension. It places anime images on your new tabs, with some of them featuring the popular Kawaii girl. There’s also a feature to save the backgrounds you like as favorites, so they’ll appear more regularly in the cycle.
You can enable or disable the weather settings, while the function uses your PC’s location to determine what time to set. The joystick icon is available on the screen when you play one of LovelyTab’s games in the browser.
Our final LovelyTab focuses on the music artist Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, also known as XXXTentacion. The XXXTentacion Wallpapers Rare New Tab extension for Chrome provides the top free wallpapers with the artist on the screen. You’ll have the usual LovelyTab settings, such as weather, games, and time.
However, the layout of this Chrome extension is slightly different. There are a few more widgets at the top of the screen, such as the onscreen game control and theme changer. The standard affiliate links appear to be gone, but I’m sure you can enable it in the settings.
While I’m not familiar with this brand, the Toca Life World Wallpapers extension looks adorable. The rotating themes contain wallpapers of the popular characters in various settings. As an extra touch, you’re able to start a slideshow of your favorite images for when you’re taking a break from work or school.
If you need your tasks to remain your focus while researching online, there are sticky notes you can attach to your Chrome browser. When you’re done, you simply remove the note and move on to your next assignment. There’s also an option to save shortcuts to the sites you love to visit, which is excellent for those of us working on WordPress consoles.
