Add a Clock to the Toolbar and View a Big Funky Clock

SUMMARY: Show a clock in Google Chrome's toolbar, and double-click it to open a larger customizable clock.

Perhaps you have your taskbar set to auto-hide, thus hiding your system clock. Perhaps you tire of jumping around the screen to find the time. Either way, you might want to put a clock in Google Chrome's Toolbar that you can see while browsing the web. And the "Clock" extension does just that.

Double-click the clock to customize its color and whether or not it shows a 12 or 24-hour clock (you may need to check and uncheck the box a couple of times before it registers). Double-clicking the clock opens a webpage in a new tab where you can view a larger clock, allowing you to customize its font, size, color, and more. There are even links to countdown and stopwatch timers for your convenience.
