Useful Widget: Toronto Air Quality Index (AQI)

Weather? Check. Traffic along my route? Check. Breathe in the fresh air, or put on the HEPA mask? Hmmm.

Mac users that like widgets now have one more desktop button to glance at before closing the laptop and heading outside to walk, ride, or drive. An improved Ontario Air Quality Index (AQI) Widget harvests info from the provincial Ministry of the Environment's posted data and displays the most recent rating for a location of your choice in a compact colour-coded button on your desktop.

It's a simple one, and a nice addition to my growing collection of useful, Toronto-centric widgets.
