Browser Extensions

Webstars is a caused base search engine. We donate the majority of the proceeds to various causes, with a focus on supporting causes related to kids. We enable our users to see a beautiful new wallpaper scenery daily on our Chrome extension home tabs. Add the Webstars browser extension to your web Chrome browser and join us in making this world a better place!
We have browser extensions available for Chrome and will be available to Edge and Firefox browsers soon.

What does the browser extension do?

The browser extension does three things:

  • 1. It sets your homepage to Webstars.org
  • 2. It opens Webstars.org every time you open a new tab
  • 3. It sets your default search engine to Webstars.org. This allows you to type any search query into your address bar and your search will be executed on Webstars.org.

How do I install the browser extension?


Click on the link (goes to Chrome Store page for Webstars) to install Webstars on your browser...


Then simply follow the on-screen instructions and click “Yes”, “OK” or “Allow” when prompted.
