There are a lot of reasons that make Google Chrome the most popular and widely used browser. Real time synchronization with Google account, multiple user profiles, themes, and the list goes on. And, of course, then there’s all the regular browser stuff as well. But probably the most important and useful feature of Google Chrome is its support for extensions. The Chrome web store is full of official (from Google) and third party extensions that expand Google Chrome’s capabilities further, making it even better.
You can use Google Chrome extensions to share documents, edit images, play games, and a lot more, directly from Google Chrome. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Thanks to one such extension, World Clocks new tab page, you can keep track of the time in different countries of the world, right from the new tab page (hence the name of the extension) of Google Chrome. Wanna know the details? Head over to the flip side of the break to see how you can show time of different countries in new tab of Google Chrome.

Here, you can configure up to 12 clocks to show the time in any time zone across the world. Apart from that, you can choose the theme, time format and things like that. You can even provide a direct URL of an image to be used as the background for the clocks. When done, hit the Save Changes button. Here’s a screenshot:
