Are you ready to be introduced to the best New Tab/Start Page since the beginning of Google Chrome? Well you better get ready because it’s coming! Actually, it has already been around for several months now and has built quite a user base of “currently” over 120,000 users. The extension is called Currently and it is a fast loading “theme” for your New Tab page.
It was only a matter of time before the weather became another outlet for crowdsourcers to exercise their collective might, and that’s exactly what weather app Wezzoo is going for. In addition to rock-solid reliable data from hundreds of weather stations around the world, users are able to report on conditions in their own back yards.
I’m rather obsessed with the weather. It’s not my fault, it’s just that I was born and brought up in the U.K., and all British people are obsessed with the weather.

I’ve never bought a weather app before, and that’s because I’m pretty pleased with the one Apple bundled with iOS. It’s not going to win awards, but it’s simple and it works.

This is to weather apps what Clear is to note-taking apps.
