Replaces New Tab page an elegant one, with news feeds from your favorite blogs and websites.
In this day and age, when something cool and something interesting is happening every other second, it's hard to keep up with the latest news. So, naturally, you rely on some feed sources to keep you updated. But let's admit it, whatever you do, you never really get a wholesome experience. There just isn't an application that brings all you feeds together into a single interface, without getting in your way. As good RSS readers become harder to find and tracking websites and subscribing to newsletters messes up your inbox, you look for an app that can save you the hassle and bring all that you desire within a click's range. Enter, Blink.
Blink is an elegant and minimal New Tab replacement that turns you browser's New Tab page into a simple and clean hub of quick-links and feeds. Your bookmarks, history, Google Search (with auto-complete suggestions) is just a click away now. And that's just the beginning. Within a click's reach, you have all the news from all your favorite feed sources arranged in an elegant fashion, with quick links to share posts on Google+, Facebook and Twitter. And even in the feed, you can choose what kind of posts you want to see. Maybe you like to quickly catch up with trending posts, or prefer to stay up-to-date with the hot-out-of-the-oven latest news, or perhaps, like me, prefer a nice balance of both trending and latest posts.
By now you should be wondering, where Blink gets it news feed from. That is the magic of Feedly. Powered by the Feedly API, Blink gets you feeds from all sources Feedly tracks, and presents them in a minimal and refreshing card design. But don't worry, you don't need to sign up or log in for anything at all.
So, to sum up, here's what it does:
1. Replaces your New Tab with a minimal page with quick Google search.
2. Shows customized feed from your favorite websites and blogs.
3. Brings history and bookmarks within a click's range.
Oh, and all this is accessible from the same New Tab page, so never have to switch tabs or windows, giving you a more focused, organized and productive
And the price? FREE! Blink is (will always be) a free and open-source extension. It's a product of love, let's not bring money into the picture ;)
If you really appreciate the effort, you can definitely show your love by donating with Paypal from within the extension.
So, go ahead and click that shiny blue button that says 'Add to Chrome' and enjoy the Blink experience.
