And what many of us don’t know is how to configure Chrome to place a GIF in the background on the main search engine page. The experiment can yield results from a dull white background to a powerful image that will guide your entire research.

Step 1

  • The first thing you should do is find the GIF that you want to use as a Chrome background. Of course, the recommended directory is Giphy. But we also recommend that you find a Google search with filters to find slightly better quality images.
  • After you’ve discovered the GIF in your browsers, right-click and then choose “save image as.”

  • Now in the “background”, click “upload from device “and navigate to the GIF that you saved as a PNG.
