In April, we announced that Art Up Your Tab was available as an extension for the Chrome internet browser. Now, we're pleased to say it's also available for Firefox users.

The plug-in displays a full-screen painting or photograph from a frequently refreshed pool of carefully selected images from Europeana for each newly opened tab or window. The aim is that seeing inspiring and unexpected artworks will make you put your busy life on hold for a brief moment and spark your imagination.

If you like what you see, you can instantly download and use the high-resolution images. Information about the artwork and conditions for use are displayed with each image.

There's a very neat touch in the latest selection for the new Firefox plug-in - a set of artworks relating to fire and foxes. See what they did there?

One million new tabs

Over 2,000 people have installed the Chrome version of Art Up Your Tab, and over one million new tabs have been opened with it.

One reviewer, Marcelo Soria-Rodriguez, had this to say, 'Excellent extension, always interesting artworks, a great way to bring art into my daily life since I can't have so much time to go looking for it.'

And there are fans on Twitter too:
