When you first open your Chrome web browser, you may notice that you see a blank, white background with a search bar. This is something you look at throughout the day, whether you are at work or browsing at home. You can download themes that someone else has created like seasonal images, sports or animals. But what if you could fill that space with pictures of your family, friends, pets, favorite sports teams, landscapes or awesome adventures? Now, with Canvas you can.
