Flickr Tab for Chrome
Display a different Flickr image on every new tab

Flickr Tab is a Google Chrome extension which displays a different Flickr image every time you open a new tab.

That's essentially it. There are no complex settings here. There are no simple ones, either. You can't define the type of images you'd like, set up custom searches or do anything else. The extension just grabs a pic, displays it, and offers a small amount of interactivity (refreshing the page gets you a new image, clicking the photographer's name displays more from them).

This doesn't matter much, of course, because Flickr has some amazing images, and even if you don't like one, you'll be using your new tab to open a website about half a second later anyway.

It all worked very well for us, but may not be the right extension for everyone. If you like your new tab to open at Google, say, or display your bookmarks bar, then getting a Flickr image instead will only slow you down.

Verdict:

Flickr Tab is a very simple way to make your new tabs look great, but we generally prefer to open with a search engine or our last-used site.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.7

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
