Overview

Experience the latest image of Earth from a satellite every time you open a new tab.

it's usually almost just a full black screen. The Earth is just visible as a very small line.

It has been great and I used to love it, but now it won't update the Himawari 8 image, and when I reinstall it, I don't get any image, just a black screen. If you could fix that, it would be fantastic and I'll give it 5 stars.

This extension is amazing – not only the beauty of the images but also the rich set of configuration options. I've learned quite a few things from this app. Even better, on zoom, my friends are astonished when they see the opulence of the orb we all call home. Our chaotic lives make it easy to forget how precious our planet is; this app provides a lovely reminder.
