As the world stands upon the cusp of the month of September, the first of the autumn leaves have already started to fall for many of us. It’s a special time of year when Mother Nature makes the transition from trying to kill us with months and months of unbearable heat, tornadoes and floods to doing her best to do us all in with two season’s worth of hurricanes, a few more tornadoes and bone-chilling cold. While we can’t stop her soulless onslaught, it is possible to leave the house in the morning feeling just a little more prepared for the weather that’s being dumped on us, thanks to The Weather Channel for Chrome, our Browser Extension of the Week.
The Weather Channel for Chrome is a slick little extension that resides in your browser’s navigation bar. Designed to provide at-a-glance information on the current weather conditions for up to nine different areas around the world, The Weather Channel for Chrome makes it easy to keep track of what’s going on outside, no matter where you are. By clicking on the extension’s icon, users can receive a detailed 36-hour forecast including information such as UV Index, temperature, Wind Direction, and barometric pressure.
Oh, and for all of you masochists out there, the extension also provides access to the Weather Network’s television programming guide. Who could ask for more?
Be sure to check back with us every Thursday for another edition of Maximum PC’s Browser Extension of the Week.
