Newsprompt is a free Chrome extension which displays the latest news from across the world, every time you open your new tab page.

The add-on scans 1,000+ top websites covering broad and niche categories, uses smart algorithms to remove any duplicates, and presents you with the results: a picture, headline, source and date per story.

Just skimming through the recent results will get you up-to-date in seconds. Click anything interesting and the source article opens in new tab.

A sidebar has more specific links, covering trending stories (Highly Read, Highly Shared, Recommended) and specific topic areas (World, US News, Business, Entertainment, Sports, Technology, Science, Health).

And when you've finished browsing, there's also a general Yahoo!-powered search box to find your next page.

Verdict:

Newsprompt isn't as configurable as we'd like. Or at all, really. If you decide you're most interested in sports stories, for instance, why can't the extension display those by default?

Still, if you're just looking for general news then Newsprompt delivers, presenting you with all the latest stories across a host of sources and categories.

A clean extension for reading news
Learning from behavior as oppose to configuration

Thank you for reviewing our chrome extension. The plan of the extension is to learn from the user's browsing behavior over time and show him what he have been reading more and more as oppose to having to configure. That said, recommendations are currently "a work in progress" and not at the level at which we want them to be.
