This application lets you know the time in countries and cities around the world, though you can only view nine locations at a time. World Time Explorer's main window is accessed through the program's system tray icon and displays the time in nine cities simultaneously. You can't add additional cities; instead, you'll have to swap one of the selections with the city or country of your choice. Notable features include a world map that can display the longitude and latitude of a city and its total population, and a time calculator that will compute the difference between the current time and date and one of many worldwide locations. The program offers a few settings to customize the display's background color and font. This freeware program can be used by anyone interested in knowing what time it is in locations around the world.
