Google announced on Wednesday the launch of an application in its Chrome browser to help children and adults track Santa as he travels the globe distributing presents on Christmas Eve.
Santa Tracker enables users of Chrome to both browse the internet and follow Saint Nick and his reindeer entourage on their journey around the world.
Users of the app can also see the countdown to Santa's departure, play with his blimp and elf bus and write messages to the bearded red suited one on a frosty browser window.
Download the app via the Chrome store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/santa-tracker/iodomglenhcehfbhbakhedmbobhbgjcb.
Those not using Chrome can follow Santa and his sleigh via NORAD's Santa tracker at noradsanta.org. NORAD recently announced that it would no longer be operating the Santa tracker in conjunction with Google Maps but would, instead, work with Microsoft and Microsoft's search engine Bing.
