  1. Hi Tim,

    I have your extension installed on my home computer (in Philadelphia, PA) and work computer (in Ambler, PA), both running the latest stable version of Chrome, and both are logged into my personal Google account and synced.

    I’ve noticed when I come home from work, open Chrome, and click the icon, it shows my work location the first time I click it, then when I click away (close the extension popup), then click again, it has updated to the correct home location. The same goes for when I open Chrome at work in the morning – the first click shows my home location, and the second click shows my work location.

    It appears there’s an issue where it doesn’t update to the correct/current location until after the first click. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    -Ryan

    1. Hey Ryan,

      The extension will check periodically check for location changes. Most likely you are opening the extension before it has time to update the location. I can look into improving this so it will update immediately.

      Thanks Tim

  2. Dark Sky just released a new website called darksky.net. the old forecsastio.net site mentions this as well. the new site is much nicer than the old site. It would be cool if you were to repoint the extension to the new site if possible.

    1. If you mouse over the day/time you can see C. Showing multiple locations is tough with limited room. I think most are similar b/c they are made for the majority of users. I’m open to any ideas you have.

  3. The URL couldn’t be validated. Callback verification failed with the following errors: HTTP Status Code = 404; HTTP Message = NOT FOUND
    -//

  4. Unlike Safari on our new iMac my Chrome browser does not show the time. I noticed that your Weather Extension had it but was ‘x’d over. I purchased Weather Extension Pro, at a greatly reduced price and was able to uncover the time ‘x’ (no pun intended), but I see no time anywhere. Did I misread or is it not available? Not complaining, just asking. I like what I see and will leave a review as soon as I become comfortable with the extension. Thanks.
