You spend so much time staring at your computer... doesn't your computer deserve a chance to glance back at you?

Glance Back is a daily photo diary, capturing the moments shared between you and your computer. Once a day, when you open a new tab, Glance Back will take your photo, ask you what you’re thinking about, and save both the photo and written thought to its locally stored archive.

I've been using this extension for so long now but I'm trying to change the browser I use to opera gx, and it would be awesome if this extension could be optimized for it. Opera lets you download and use chrome extensions but it doesn't seem to activate right like with chrome. Regardless I've loved using it all this time!

I love and admire your work, Maya! Been enjoying glance back for about 2 years now and it would be awesome if users can edit their minimal mode (at the very least, change the solid colour of the new tab)
