  • Fourteen days across the Atlantic, perched on a ship’s rudder

    Four Nigerian stowaways embarked on a perilous ocean voyage from Lagos to Europe, clinging to the rudder of a tanker. Unaware they were bound for Brazil, they endured a two-week journey marred by hunger, thirst, and perilous conditions. Fleeing economic hardship, crime, and corruption in Nigeria, they sought a brighter future. After being rescued off the coast of Brazil, they face challenges in their new home, aiming to overcome racism and find stability while rebuilding their lives. Their journey highlights the desperation and risks undertaken by many African migrants seeking a better life.

The extension also provides options for alignment, blur, opacity, repeat, size, and automatic image transition. Additionally, it offers advanced settings like rendering content above backgrounds and applying custom CSS. Note that some issues exist on certain platforms. The extension is available on GitHub under the GNU GPL v2.0 license.
