This extension gives you a new GIF every time you open a tab

Like every other sane person on the planet, you love GIFs –of course you do – but it can be hard to find the time to trawl the internet in search of the good ones.

Well, how would you like it if you were gifted a new animated GIF every time you open a new tab? Typically, having just published our list of our top 10 Chrome plug-ins, another one comes along that does exactly that. Introducing animatedTabs.


Once installed, this simple extension will pop up to amaze or amuse you throughout the day just when you least expect it.

While we possess no information on the source of the moving pictures, some researching indicates that many are from reddit’s/r/gifs/ subreddit.

Because of this, most of the GIFs used for the extension are pretty current – some very popular ones are from this Game Of Thrones bloopers reel, which was recently released at Comic Con last week.

Whilst most of the GIF are ‘work-appropriate,’ avoid installing this on your computer at work, you never know when a potentially awkward one might pop up.
