Released as part of Expedia’s Hackathon competition, the engineers working at Expedia had a vision based on data that travelers are inspired to visit a place based on how beautiful it looks.
As such, they came up with the idea that instead of requiring someone to visit the Expedia website, the inspiration to travel could be found by simply opening a new browser tab.
With the Rimor Chrome Extension, you can turn your blank new browser tabs into astounding images of destinations around the world. You can add favorite destinations, and later look back on them when it comes time to plan a trip. Rather than overwhelming you with options or sales tactics when you’re trying to get work done, it presents a stunning image and its location. Additionally, if you do not like the image, just click the “refresh” icon or refresh your browser window, and you’ll be presented with a new city and photograph.
