See a collection of trending GIFs every time you open a new tab!

Replaces the default new tab page with a selection of trending GIFs, or a single random GIF based on your keyword of choice. Copy and paste your favorites right from the page, every time you open a new tab. The GIFs displayed are hand-curated by GIPHY, so you can stay up to date on what's fresh, and discover new favorites. GIFs are downsampled and typically cached by your browser, so this extension should not use excessive bandwidth. ------------------------------------------------ Changelog: 1.4.3: - Faster loading of GIFs 1.4.1: - Better GIF quality for single GIF view 1.4: - Can now have a grid of GIFs by keyword or a single trending GIF in addition to previous display modes - Major style update to the settings popup - Better icon!
