Chrome/Web: Working all day with only the sounds of the office to entertain you and only the cubicle wall above your desk to keep you company can be stressful. Relaxpls is a webapp and Chrome extension that offers you a quick break with some soothing nature sounds and full-screen images that you can toggle whenever the day is getting a little too rough to handle. Just pop on your headphones, full-screen your browser window, and relax.
Relaxpls is a pretty simple add-on. Once installed, just open it from your list of Chrome Apps. You’ll immediately hear the sounds of birds chirping, and your tab will display beautiful, high-resolution nature scenes and macro shots (that you can drag-and-drop to your desktop to save as wallpaper, if you want.) If you have no need for an extension, just visit the site to start your desktop vacation. To get the full effect, full-screen Chrome so your entire display matches the sounds, and just sit back and de-stress for a few minutes. When you’re ready, just close the tab to come back to reality.
