The GNOME Water Temperature Applet displays water temperatures of rivers, lakes and oceans in your GNOME panel. So you know when you can go swimming. It currently features data sources from Austria, Germany, France, Switzerland, Turkey and the United States. Feel free to suggest more websites with water temperatures or add them yourself.
