Hey everyone! Inspired by Kevin Kelley and Futurama, I decided to tackle a simple “Death Clock” Chrome Extension for my first ever product launch! Even though the name is morbid, the idea is to just remind us every time we open a new tab that life is fleeting and we should be making the most of it! I’d love to hear any feedback (and ensure it is actually working for most people haha). Thanks for checking it out! Connor V.

@connorvo I'm sad there's no Dethklok Easter egg here though

@connorvo Added as a Chrome extension 👍 Would really love to have an iOS widget for this though 😊

@connorvo Keen to try it out but curious as to why it requires the permissions to read my browsing history? Momentum, a popular "new tab" extension doesn't?

Chirag ChopraI make games (not) for the masses.
Just a suggestion - the "left" text in the second line feels off and disconnected. I'd prefer if the second line only consisted of "make the most of it".

Has anyone ever reached the end of their death clock before the end of their life clock?

Love this! My fav life hack in this area is putting recurring all day monthly events in google calendar for the death anniversaries of loved ones (or pets). It's a good reminder to keep things in perspective on a recurring monthly basis.

@jrdngonen routines! I'm most productive when there's consistency (e.g. Philz morning work sessions, afternoon/evening gym).
