The New Year is coming soon, so how about a nice countdown to this event in your browser?
I set up such a countdown on my website a few years ago using scripts from dynamicdrive.com, and have recently cleaned it up and debugged it. It should work in any popular, up-to-date web browser.
Upon visiting the page, you will see a nice countdown, which gets the time from your computer so it works correctly in your time-zone. Plus, at the end of the countdown, you will get to see virtual fireworks 😉
I included an alternate, simple and plain style-sheet which can also be used if you don’t like fancy default theme. You can access it by using your browser’s style-sheet switcher. (For Firefox this is View > Page Style > plain-theme (or No Style which pretty much does the same thing)
