Ladies, do you surf the web? And do you need more Ryan Gosling in your life? Well, you're in luck.

If you use the "Hey Girl" Chrome extension, your web surfing will turn into a Gosling-fest. That's because the tool changes the images on any webpage to shots of the handsome movie star. It was created by Brooklyn-based web developer Katherine Champagne.

What's the point, you say?

Champagne said this to Mashable.com:

I hope that heygirl.io inspires more women to get into web development—there needs to be more of us, ladies! It's not all math, it's not boring—as I hope heygirl.io evidences, I've found programming to be an incredible creative outlet.

What do you think of the tool? Ladies, does it inspire you to get into web development?
