New Tab by Getty Images is a free Chrome extension which displays a spectacular photo from the Getty Images library with every new page.

A Google search bar allows searching Getty Images and iStock, as well as running a regular Google search.

If you've nothing else to do then you might browse through the carousel of hand-picked Getty Image photos, updated daily. There are also direct links to the Getty Images and iStock sites.

For some reason the extension also adds an icon to the address bar. It doesn't do anything useful (there are no options or settings to explore) so we removed it immediately (right-click, Hide...).

Verdict

Great pictures, but we'd like a little more control over what else appears on the new tab screen.
