We have brought you word about NORAD’s Santa Claus tracker a few years back, and this time around, this software is back yet again – although this time around, it has made the official jump over to the world of tablets. In fact, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) as a defense agency has decided to work with Microsoft on an updated web-based tracker which will specially work best on web browsers that play nice with touchscreen displays, where among them include Internet Explorer 11, of course. This latest site would let you keep tabs on where Santa Claus is headed to, as you get to spin a globe coded with WebGL using nothing but your finger alone.
Apart from that, you will also have the ability to make a call over to NORAD using Skype so that you will be able to gain additional information on the most recent sighting of Santa and his sleigh (not to mention his merry bunch of reindeer, too). Apart from that, there is no need to play the patience card since Microsoft has already promised that you will be treated to games, movies and music on a daily basis using this particular NORAD Santa Tracker. Windows 8 and Windows Phone users are also able to check it out via their respective native tracking apps.
