Get your daily dose of curated developer and tech news directly in Google Chrome's new tab page by relying on this stylish extension

Regardless of your area of interest is, it’s safe to say that today there’s no shortage of good news sources. However, you may agree that the best source with the best type of news are those who offer curated content.

Access the latest developer-oriented content in a convenient fashion

That said, if you’re a developer, you’ll most likely like the concept behind Daily, a cross-browser extension that brings in the browser’s new tab page curated technology, and development-related articles from a wide range of different sources.

Once installed, Daily lives in Google’s toolbar, on the right side of the address bar, just like most other extensions of this sort. The attention to detail is what really makes this extension shine. First time users are greeted by a very nifty “Welcome home” screen that explains what this extension can do and allows them to customize their feed preferences. As expected, articles are provided based on your favorite tags.

Surprisingly customizable extension

The extension is designed to help developers save precious time by providing a set of curated and relevant articles each time they open a new tab in Chrome. This way, developers should, at least in theory, stay up to date with the latest happenings and not waste time otherwise spent coding. Being a product mainly aimed at developers, it’s only natural that the quality of the extension is as high as it gets.

The interface is very stylish and intuitive, and it allows users to choose from two layout modes, as well as two GUI themes (dark and light). From the main menu (upper left corner of the new tab window), developers can handpick the news sources for their feed, add or remove tags, as well as access the bookmark section where all the read-later articles reside.

Conclusion

To conclude, Daily for Chrome is a very well made, and definitely useful extension that works as intended and delivers high quality, curated articles, just as advertised. It provides developers with a very convenient way of staying up to date with the latest tech and dev news, without having to rely on social media services (which can be distracting) or other dev news aggregators or discussion websites.
