Whilst working on STV's news app, my colleagues and I were constantly presented with depressing stories, it can affect your mental health.

So I built a chrome plugin that makes the world seem just a little bit nicer. The plugin hits up an API to get a list of words to pull the 'ol switcheroo on and subsequently swaps out any images for that of a baby animal. So for example "man murdered by drug dealer" becomes "man hugged by small child". The project is discontinued now but a former colleague and I are looking to resurrect the plugin and get it on the chrome store.
