Add Art To Your Browser

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Desktop Enhancement, Using The Internet

If you use Google Chrome as your browser, there’s a nifty extension that will let you add some great works of art to your browsing.  It’s called Google Art Project and it features masterpieces from Van Gogh, Monet and other great artists. When you add this extension, you’ll see the art whenever you open a new tab.


To use it, you’ll need to click here or go to the Chrome Web Store and search for ‘Google Art Project.’ Then click the Add to Chrome button.


A window will appear asking you to confirm by clicking Add.


You’ll receive a confirmation that the extension has been added to Chrome.


Now, click to add a new tab in Chrome.


A work of art with clickable information about the piece will be displayed.


Just click on the title for more information about the art.


To see the familiar Top Sites display, just click down in the right corner on the folder icon.


The top sites will display in the middle of the page.


By default the painting will change daily. If you’d like to see a new image with each new tab, right-click on the browser. From the menu that appears, choose Google Art Project, then Change artwork, then switch from Daily to In every new tab.


Just a reminder, this is an extension for the Google Chrome Browser only.  Enjoy the artwork!

    Hm, this didn’t work for me. The link in your newsletter took me to the window as you noted, however the only option for me was to download Chrome, which is already installed on my pc. No windows displayed for the background as you’ve discussed. Any thoughts on other steps?
