A minimal time zone extension, with beautiful design. Time zones in every new tab.

We kind of got tired from ‘new tab’ extensions.
Especially ones that doesn’t give real added value.
Although ‘Figure it Out’, which shows time zones in every new tab, pretty much answers the case above, we liked it.

‘Figure it Out’, or FIO, beautifully displays the time zones you work and play in.
It’s a minimal time zone extension that adds up to ten time zones of your choice to your ‘new tab’ screen.

The design is perfect and the interaction with this new tab is simply hypnotizing.

After installing the extension from the Chrome store (only chrome for now), you’ll choose your home time zone.
Then, a click on the ‘add location’ tab will let you add more gradients (i.e – time zones), in a very intuitive way.  Just start typing the city name…


After setting up the relevant time zones, you can scroll up/down to modify the current hour of the day, to see what it will be in each one of the locations. The coolest thing is that with each scroll, the colors change, and this is so satisfying! 🙂

The bottom line is – FIO is cool.
It’s limited to a fairly small group of users, but we’re keeping it for now, until we’ll find something better to do with our new opened tabs.
