Custom Chrome New Tab page/extension

I wanted a custom background image for New Tab without extensions from the Chrome Web Store. Before making one I tried Momentum and Start a better new tab, but required permissions, had external network dependency, etc.

So I decided to make one and found the official tutorial how to build chrome extension.

For me learning from code examples is more suitable so I checked the Samples and found a New Tab example that I modified it to meet my desired output.

To be able to use it you need to enable Developer mode at chrome://extensions/ in the top right corner.

And the end result for me looks like this.
