That time of the year has come again-jingle bells, sleigh full of presents and echoes of fat-bellied 'Ho ho ho'! Kids can track the whereabouts of their favorite mythical figure Santa Claus via noradsanta.org while he does his rounds preparing and delivering presents.
Google has put in its own share of making things easier, with an extension for Google Chrome called Santa Tracker, which has a countdown timer until Christmas Day.
The plugin can be downloaded from the Extensions page of Google Chrome. On installing, a miniature Santa Claus appears at the right extreme of the field for URL. On clicking this little Saint Nick, a well-designed banner unfolds over the browser window. The banner displays festive artwork as well as the countdown time.
In addition, there are three buttons that appear at the bottom which allow the user to get interactive items right on their desktops.
By clicking the center button and a bus, a Christmas tree and a star appear. The bus moves from left to right of the screen and on clicking produces honking sounds. The snowflake button causes snow to fall and the screen to become frosted along with playing Christmas music in the background. There is a blimp button too.
Until the time Santa departs, the browser allows kids (and anyone else who put their faith in Santa) to explore Santa's village offering a plethora of entertaining things to do. When the countdown reaches 0 and Santa takes off to deliver gifts, his whereabouts can be observed through NORAD.
This fun and cute application is available only for the users of Google Chrome. Users can easily remove the extension by right-clicking once Christmas passes.
