These days, you can find WeatherBug just about everywhere. And for mobile users, WeatherBug has apps for just about any mobile platform that you can think of. It’s one area among many where the WeatherBug brand has done wonders thanks to Earth Networks. But for those of us that spend more time in front of a computer than a mobile device, having immediate access to current conditions is a must.
In the past, this would mean running a dedicated installation of your favorite weather monitoring program, such as WeatherBug free edition or WeatherBug Plus. But for those of us who spend more time in our Web browsers than anywhere else, there’s something to be said for a good weather data extension. As luck would have it, Earth Networks offers some fantastic WeatherBug browser extensions that are sure to make your day a whole lot easier.
WeatherBug for Internet Explorer
It might surprise most of you, but there are actually two very cool options for those of you looking for a WeatherBug extension that’s compatible with Internet Explorer. The first one, is a simple tool that allows you to get a quick forecast in a matter of a few key presses. Considered to be a search provider add-on, this WeatherBug add-on for the Internet Explorer gives you instant access to weather whenever you want it. Just type in a zip code or a city/state, then you’ll be sent directly to the corresponding WeatherBug.com webpage for further details.
The second WeatherBug addon for Internet Explorer is simply put, amazing to see in action. Imagine your browser actually changing, shifting, evolving as the weather adjusts outside while you work! If you run the WeatherBug Browser Theme for Internet Explorer, you will be able to experience this incredible theme simply by installing the theme provided by Brand Thunder.
WeatherBug For Google Chrome
Speaking as someone who prefers Chrome most days, I can tell you that the extensions are generally quite impressive. And when Chrome was released to the general public, it was only a matter of time before Earth Networks took the WeatherBug brand and amazed Chrome users with one of the coolest Chrome apps I’ve ever seen. Enter the WeatherBug Weather Window. Not only does it provide the sort of expected forecast/current condition functionality one would expect, this WeatherBug extension takes it a step further by actually providing you a virtual window from which to look at what the weather is like outside. Now obviously, this is merely a cool simulation. But that doesn’t prevent pure amazement by all who see the Weather Window in action for the first time.
The second WeatherBug extension for Chrome is a little less intense and happens to be perfect for those of you wanting to get your local conditions and forecast, quickly. Just install it, then click on the little temp readout in the upper right corner for your live, local weather data.
WeatherBug for Firefox
Despite my affinity for Chrome, I will always have a warm spot for Firefox. It was Firefox, that first got me hooked on cool browser extensions in the first place. And in the same spirit, this was the first browser WeatherBug extension released by Earth Networks. These days Mike Singer’s Weather Watcher Live is the recommended Firefox extension for those wanting WeatherBug data in their browser. It’s a great extension, arguably the best weather extension currently available for Firefox in my opinion. It will provide you with a great user experience, while allowing you to track current conditions and the forecast in a fluid manner.
