Weblings

Add a little joy to your browser's new tab page.

Weblings in Chrome

Every time you open a new tab or browser window, one of the Weblings will appear with a heartening compliment, or a lighthearted quip, to brighten up your day. The Weblings are an assortment of characters of my own creation.

  • 🎨 An all new Material inspired design, updated for high resolution displays
  • 🔍 Optional search bar, which uses the fantastic DuckDuckGo engine
  • ☁️ Options synchronise across your devices using Firefox Account Sync
  • 🌈 Larger, clearer images of all the Weblings
  • 💬 More compliments, cheesier puns and a sprinkling of additional colours
  • Even more Weblings than before, including a very happy 💩
