7 World Time Clock Applications That Lets You Keep Track of the Time around the World

'

If you run a blog and are to submit your interesting blog posts to Digg or other social bookmarking sites, one of the factors to gain maximum traffic is to submit the post at the perfect time. We have to consider the time at U.S. because most traffic are coming from this country. I am living in Malaysia (GMT+8) and it is not a wise idea for me to submit my post to Digg at noon when it is sleeping hour in US.

Furthermore, World Time Clock also comes in handy when you are to make contact to someone from other part of the globe. So it is important for you to consider the various time zones. Today, I have compiled a list of World Time Clock applications that display the current local time for locations around the world. Most of them are web-based applications that run inside your web browser.
