Chrome: If you’re a fan of Bing’s eye-catching daily backgrounds but prefer Google as your search portal, this Google Chrome add-on will pull the Bing wallpaper and add it to Google for you.
It’s as simple as it sounds. Install the add-on, visit Google.com and you’ll see all the usual Google stuff but with a Bing background layered behind it. The only issue we found with the add-on is that custom Google logos (like those used to celebrate holidays and so on) are usually designed with the assumption that the background will be totally white and look a little off when placed over a non-white background. Other than that, it works perfect.
Bing Wallpaper for Google Homepage is free, Chrome only.
