Mark Twain once said, “Everyone talks about the weather, but no
one does anything about it.” Much like the Firefox version,
free Chrome extension
Forecastfox Weather may not let you change the weather, but it does
a great job of putting the weather at your fingertips, wherever you
are on the Web.
Install Forecastfox Weather into Chrome, and it displays as an
icon in the upper-right hand portion of the screen. The icon
displays the temperature and also shows whether it’s sunny, cloudy,
raining or snowing. For example, it shows a small image of the sun
for a sunny day. To get more details, hover your mouse over the
icon, and you’ll get a brief description of the current weather
such as “Most cloudy, 32 degrees Fahrenheit.” Your location will
also display. You can tweak the settings to display the temperature
in Celsius, and can also change the windspeed from mph (miles per
hour) to km/h (kilometers per hour).
Click the icon and a seven-day weather forecast from Accuweather
appears in a pop-up window, with nicely done graphics next to each
day (an icy thermometer for a day in which the temperature won’t
rise above 14 degrees Fahrenheit, for example). You’ll also see
details about the current conditions, including temperature,
humidity, wind speed, visibility and barometric pressure.
Forecastfox Weather also displays a weather map showing the current
conditions. To get more details about any day of the week, click
that day, and you’ll be sent to the Accuweather site for more
If you regularly check the weather, you’ll find the Forecastfox
Weather Chrome extension a great time-saver, because you’ll be able
to get weather information wherever you are on the Web.
