Fruumo is a free to use browser extension compatible with Google Chrome. The function of the application is to provide you with a New Tab page that is far more useful than the native one offered by Google Chrome.
In order to start using the application, you first install the extension onto your browser. When the extension is installed, you should open up an empty new tab page by clicking on the “+” icon on top of Chrome or by simply using the “Ctrl+T” hotkey shortcut. You will find a new tab with a beautiful background image. In the top center of the page you will find the current system time.
Today’s weather conditions will be shown in the top left, according to the location that is detected by the extension. The current temperature and the day’s maximum and minimum temperatures are shown in the top right. Recently accessed pages are shown at the bottom and you can search through them using a text bar provided at the center of the new tab page. At the bottom of the page you will find links to a RSS feed, to your Facebook account, and to installed applications. The last button lets you modify the extension’s settings.
These options include a choice between Celsius and Fahrenheit for the temperature, a URL for the RSS feed that appears on the new tab page, and any style settings for your new tab page such as a custom background.
