I am a long time user of Momentum, which I think was the first popular Chrome extension to amp the look of a new tab. Then came FlashTabs, which helps me use flash cards to stave off forgetfulness. These are just some of the productive new tab extensions available for Chrome. But with their numbers (and popularity) comes an everyday problem: you can use them only one at a time.
So, which one do you pick and choose?
Like me, you might have to roll the dice between extensions that enhance appearance and those that bring functionality.
CycleTab removes the problem by allowing you to cycle through all your new tab extensions. Now you don’t have to restrict yourself to just one kind of new tab view. It works with any new tab extension on the Chrome Web Store.
CycleTab recognizes the new tab extensions that are installed. Control how you want the new tabs to roate by picking one of the two choices from the extension’s Options:
I prefer Random for the unpredictability of discovering something new.
Chrome’s new tab extensions give many “at-a-glance” benefits within the seconds you take to switch to a new page. It could be the latest apps from ProductHunt or posts from sub-Reddits of your choice. So, try out CycleTab and tell us if it meets one of your more pressing browsing needs.
Will it find a place among your favorite tab management extensions?
