With the majority of the world currently unable to travel due to COVID-19 restrictions, wouldn’t it be nice to visit beautiful festive city streets and Christmas markets around the world, right from your browser?
Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is Tab With A View – Christmas Edition.
What is it?
Tab With A View – Christmas Edition is a Microsoft Edge web-browser add-in that allows you to virtually walk through a variety of festive City streets and Christmas markets from around the world.
How much does it cost?
Tab With A View is free!
Tab With A View – the Christmas Edition!
As a result of the COVID-19 restrictions globally, the majority of us are unable to travel.
However, that doesn’t mean we can’t virtually explore other beautiful places in the world!
I’ve shared before the wonderful WindowSwap – Open a New Window Somewhere in the World.
In the same vein, Tab With A View – Christmas Edition allows you to virtually travel to see some of the most beautiful festive City streets and Christmas markets from around the world, all from your web-browser!
Tab With A View is a Microsoft Edge add-on.
Simply install it, open a new tab, and Tab With A View will give you a random festive view from around the world.
Some of the views allow you to take a virtual Christmas walk or tour.
Other views allow you to use a “drone view” to fly over satellite imagery from Google Earth.
The developer of Tab With A View, Rahul Sharma, says:-
“Like the majority of us, I also loved traveling around the world, but unfortunately, Covid-19 has brought the world to a standstill. I created Tab With a View so that people across the globe could experience the beautiful world virtually, right from their browsers. I genuinely believe that during these difficult times— especially for those yearning to travel—Tab with A view will give those stuck at home something exciting to explore, especially those who’ve had to cancel travel plans and will be apart from friends and family this holiday season. We could all use something inspiring and something to look forward to when it’s safe to travel again.”
We may be stuck at home this Christmas, but Tab With A View – Christmas Edition allows us to virtually explore some beautiful festive spots.
Merry Christmas! 🙂
