#2 Momentum provides daily inspiration

Momentum Chrome Extension
Momentum Chrome Extension

Momentum provides daily inspiration on your new tab page. It does a wonderful job with stunning images, quotes, a main focus option for the day. There are also many integrations possible that link to several to do apps like Todoist and Google Tasks. You can add custom inks and see the time.

If you’re looking for inspiration, you can’t really go wrong. Still, some of the choices this developer makes are a bit curious. For example, on any computer you’ll see the date in some way or another, so placing this information center stage is really a waste of the most valuable screen real estate. And, even though it’s sympathetic to be greeted every time with your first name, this too gets annoying. Yes, it’s me again. Now, let’s get on with it!

And so we come to the all important BHAG (big hairy audacious goal). It’s a brave thing to put this center stage, really. This final thing might just be the redeeming quality for this alternative tab. It’s not as versatile or efficient as start.me, but it really isn’t bad at all.
