Firefox Computer Alarm Clock And Timer

17 Lug/09

firefoxRunning Firefox with a hidden system taskbar provides more space for the web browser. It does however remove access to the system clock which can be problematic if the system clock is needed in the user’s daily routine. The Firefox add-on Simple Timer can place a clock in the Firefox status bar. Displaying a clock is only a small part of the functionality that is provided by the add-on. It can also act as a computer alarm clock, countdown or notify the user of specific events.

One interesting option is the support for different time zones that can be combined with the notifications. It is for example possible to add the New York, Tokyo and London timezones to the application and receive notifications using the time in these timezones.

Multiple locations – each with their distinct timezone – can be added in the options of the add-on for the Firefox web browser. It is a bit unfortunate that only the local timezone can be displayed in the status bar while the other timezones become only visible when hovering the mouse over the icon and only if that feature has been enabled in the options. Notifications can be added easily in the options as well.

They can be created by selecting a time, timezone and description for the notification. Configuring it to recur and the addition of an url are optional. Simple Timer is an excellent Firefox add-on for users who would like to have access to a system clock on their screen. The notifications, countdowns and timezones are an added bonus that might be interesting for some users as well.
