    This is exactly what I was hoping AniWeather would be, but sadly not. It's similar to, but better than, the Opera AccuWeather widget. The 'RealFeel' idea is superb, and does reflect what the outside temperature actually feels like.

    A couple of things. In case anyone wonders why their home town isn't listed and if it'll work, the AccuWeather site doesn't list my town but putting it into Options as 'Lincoln, UK' works fine. Also, the pop-up display looks a little bit blurred, as though it's been stretched a bit - is that just due to the way it's fed from AccuWeather, or is there something I can do to sharpen it up a bit? (Image attached).

    Excellent work mg2 - thanks.

    I guess it's the way it's fed from AccuWeather, cause it's the original size, hasn't been stretched, maybe it'll look better on a light gray background, idk...

    Thanks. I'll have a root around and see how it's fed/got, and see if anything can be done. No big deal though, as it does just what I want. Cheers!

    Yes, I guess it looks a little bit sharper on a darker background (see attachment) . Maybe I'll add option to customize bacground color in future versions.

    PS: If don't wanna wait, you can change it yourself. I think with #CDCDCD it looks really good (little bit lighter than in the screeny).
