Overview

A visual timer to help you focus on your current task.

This timer is designed to help you be more productive by keeping your fingers on the keyboard. Click the extension icon from your browser to pop a new timer (or bring the existing one into the foreground). Then just type the number of minutes you want the timer to run for and hit Enter. The timer will start as a countdown, filling up as the timer runs so you'll know roughly how much time you have left without breaking your concentration. Once the timer completes, it begins flashing so you know it's complete. If you need to pause the timer, just select the timer popup and hit Space. Space again to resume. If you want to reset the timer (for the previously selected duration) just select the timer popup and hit "R" and it will start over. Cheatsheet for keyboard shortcuts: - 1-99 : Start a timer for that many minutes - R : Reset the timer - Space : Pause/resume the timer - ? : Toggle config mode (where you can set the background color, toggle the "ding") - T : Toggle task mode where you can list your tasks and start a timer for each New in this version: * Added summary for total minutes/hours in task view. Use this feature to avoid overcommitting. Reset your task list every day and be honest with how much dedicated time for a given day or work session. If a task is big (i.e. more than 45 minutes) break it down into smaller tasks. Keep your "everything" list in another tool (I like TickTick personally) and use this extension only for the things you have to accomplish today. Last major version update (July 30, 2023): * Bugfix - Window height shrinks every time you switch between settings/tasks and the timer * Feature - Display current/active task description that you're working on in the timer/countdown view

Well, it works. That's pretty much it. Maybe better if it had an option to fill time elapsed vertically instead of horizontally, like if I stick it to the left or right side of the screen instead of to the top or bottom.

Good, not great! Timer really needs a audio alarm. Without one, you need to keep looking at the timer causing you to waste time and be less productive. An adjustable alarm would allow time to run in the background. I am a middle school teacher and I need a timer with an alarm that I can display to keep students on track. Without and audio alarm, this is not it. It's really close, just needs this last option...

This is a great extension! I love how it helps me visualize my schedule/timer. As a suggestion, would it be possible to add an option for users to pick different colors for breaks, tasks, assignments, projects, etc.? This would make it even easier to understand my schedule/timer at a glance and could help me stay more organized. Perhaps a color palette or the ability to choose custom colors would be helpful. Additionally, ensuring color choices are accessible would be fantastic!
