We at Blogtechnika love customizing just about everything we can get our hands on. Google search page is something, we land on everyday, in fact spend a lot of time there searching our various queries. Initially Google allowed it’s users to customize the background image of the Google search page but soon that option was taken away and everyone was stuck using the white default page. But no more, using this very useful extension you can now get your preferred choice of background for Google homepage.

Custom Google Background is the Chrome extension that you must download for free from the Chrome Store to be able to customize the backgrounds.

Using the extension is extremely simple. Once you have installed the extension to Chrome, just launch the extension from the download windows and follow these simple steps.
