My extension overrides the usual new tab page in Chrome with a Humans of New York (HONY) portrait and its accompanying quote. It's simple just like the HONY portraits and is intended for the 11,748,995 followers* of the HONY page.

The HONY chrome extension gets data about the images uploaded by the HONY page via the facebook graph API. It uses AngularJS to call the graph API and interact with html. The JSON data returned by the API is limited by source,link,name fields and picks a random image from the last 75 posts (in order to keep the new tab page light). The image links back to the facebook post.

love for coding + love for HONY = HONY chrome extension
