Earth View is a simple extension that basically spices up your New Tab Page. It displays gorgeous aerial photos of various places around the earth, with their locations in the bottom right corner of the page. Functionality isn’t lost, either; you can still access your apps in the top left corner, just how you used to, and it works in Incognito Mode as well (you’ll have to enable it in the Settings -> Tools -> Extensions menu though).
