4 Sunny Ways to Get the Weather with Firefox

If you don’t like the weather, all you have to do is wait. It will change. When it does, you’ll be prepared, because you’ve got Firefox!

Firefox puts you in control and lets you customize it to meet your needs — and everyone needs to know the weather, right? Here are four ways you can have the weather forecast right in your browser using bookmarks and Firefox Add-ons (Add-ons are small pieces of software that add new features or functionality to your Firefox).

1. Rain Alarm Extension: This Add-on lets you receive a notification alert when it’s going to rain or snow in your current location. One click and you can watch what’s coming with an up-to-date radar animation on top of Google Maps.

2. ForecastFox Weather: Get international weather forecasts fromAccuWeather.com and display them in any toolbar or statusbar. This Add-on is customizable and very easy to use.

3. AniWeather: AniWeather animates weather information for locations around the world — 77,000 of them! It’s totally customizable (and did we mention animated?).

4. Have a favorite weather site that isn’t currently an Add-on? Why not bookmark it for easy access? You can minimize the number of clicks to get to that bookmark by using
the Bookmarks Toolbar. It sits under your URL bar and gives you instant access to your favorite sites. From the menu bar, select View > Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar. Now, head to Weather.com, Weather Underground or whatever weather site you like. Then simply drag it to the toolbar, where it will appear with a small icon. Click it to get your forecast at any time!
