A few years ago, I had the idea to try my hand building a Chrome extension – from scratch. I’m not much of a developer, but somehow (after browsing countless StackOverflow posts…) I managed to build a simple New Tab extension. All it does is show the current time on top of a wallpaper from Unsplash. (Check it out here)

Fast forward a few years, I decided to make a simpler version without the photos and instead replaced it with some gradients – calling it GradTab. These are taken from the WebGradients site and will load a random color scheme every time you create a new tab.

Check out the new extension here.

Let me know what you guys think and if you have any feature requests!
