This Browser Extension Offers Virtual Christmas Light Tours

An elevated view of the festive and brightly lit Christmas Market in Berlin, Germany.

Traveling for the holidays isn’t really in the cards this season, but there is a way to do it virtually. Thanks to a Google Chrome extension called Tab with a View, you can tour some of the world’s best light displays from the comfort of your computer.

The Christmas version of the extension replaces the screen you see when opening a new tab in Google Chrome with a different, beautifully lit scene from around the world. You can walk through a Christmas market in Berlin or Germany or tour lights in København, Denmark just by opening a new tab in your browser. While not every scene features a walking tour, they do allow you to explore the spaces more using Google Earth and Google Maps.

You can read more (and grab the extension) at their website here. Opt to tack it onto your browser, and you’re done. Boom! The next time you open a tab, it’s basically Christmas. In case you needed a bit more cheer—particularly in the last few hours of week pre-holiday—this handy Chrome extension is it.
