So, you’re bored about the current look and feel of your Chrome browser’s new tab page? Well, there are countless of new tab page extensions out there that you can use to liven up your new tab with all sorts of designs, modern layouts and effects. You can even convert your new tab page into a note board.
Now, what if you want something subtle and soothing to the eyes? If this is the case, then you might want to add a “rain effect” to your new tab page in Chrome. With this, your new tab page will look as if you’re staring at a glass window on a cold and rainy day. It can definitely help you feel calmer especially when you’re too stressed at work.
So forget the dilly dallies. Here’s how you can add a subtle “rain effect” to your new tab page in Chrome.
How to add a rain effect to new tab page in Chrome
- On your Chrome web browser, go to the Web Store then download and install the extension called “Rainy night”. It’s free and you are not required to log in or register.
- Once installed, you simply just let the extension be. There’s no need for you to configure it.
- So all that’s left for you to do is to open a regular window in Chrome or open a new tab.
- As you can see, the extension has automatically replaced your new tab page with a rainy effect with randomly-generated high-quality photos of various places or locations.
So every time you open a new tab page, you can see a new image with moving raindrops. You can also check the time on the bottom-left corner. If you click on the image’s name, you will be able to view its original page on Flickr.
Just keep in mind that the rain effect won’t work if you’re opening a new tab in Incognito.
