WeatherTracker 3.0 Adds 7,000 New Cities -- Trexar Technologies has released WeatherTracker 3.0, an update to their dedicated weather client for the Macintosh. WeatherTracker 3.0 provides a full Macintosh interface to Internet weather servers, displaying temperature, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, current conditions, local forecasts, climatic data, and marine forecasts (for cities near coasts). WeatherTracker 3.0 adds full support for over 7,000 new cities around the world, although cities outside North America may experience periods of limited data due to problems with local collection sites. WeatherTracker 3.0 also now uses HTTP proxies instead of SOCKS proxies. WeatherTracker is $25 shareware; it's a 1 MB download. [ACE]
