@laurent_sabbah There’s a more visually appealing Webtime Tracker - Use it: - Hunt it: (Disclaimer: I’m the developer)

Is there an alternative to it being on the new tabs page? I use that for Panda 4 :(
Helen Crozier@helencrozier · technology mentor
I second that @zsr5 as I'm so used to seeing the beautiful pictures of momentum :-( - keen to get the info but would rather it was an extension that I could just click on the browser rather than hit me all the time like that.

@zsr5 Yeah! I was a little shocked when it took away my beautiful 'New Tab' page. I'd love a little dropdown or info displayed in a new tab if you choose.

@zsr5 @helencrozier @nathenmcvittie I am soon releasing an option to move the graph display from the new tab page to a browser icon in the menu bar, so please stay tuned! 😃

Hello everyone! My friend and I made this Google Chrome extension to track our productivity online. Hopefully, it can help some of you out as well! 😃

@srikarg_ of course you now have to share what site you spend the most time on. 😀

@rrhoover Let's just keep that a secret...*Facebook*...What? You heard nothing. 😅

@srikarg_ I read a long article about Slack use last night, and apparently the top 15% of programmers are, on average, the most social on FB/Slack/wherever else.

Does it track the websites that are open, or the ones that have activity? I keep a Gmail tab open all day, for instance, but rarely ever use it.
Srikar GudipatiMaker@srikarg_ · CS, Rutgers University, 2019
@aaronmckeehan It only tracks active tabs that you are currently using. So no, it would not keep track of the inactive Gmail tab that you keep open all day...
Aaron McKeehan@aaronmckeehan · CEO, ParadigmRPA
@srikarg_ I wonder if it's possible to add that as a feature of some sort down the road. I used to own an Order Fulfillment company and productivity tracking was really important to our operations. Trackers like this are pretty helpful to that end.
Srikar GudipatiMaker@srikarg_ · CS, Rutgers University, 2019
@aaronmckeehan I'll definitely consider that feature! However, I'm curious; how would tracking inactive tabs be useful for companies such as the one you described?
Aaron McKeehan@aaronmckeehan · CEO, ParadigmRPA
@srikarg_ For myself I really wanted to know what I most often work on. Its easy to go from task to task, without much thought about what I was really working on. If I could track what I was really working on, then I could compare that to the projects I was working towards finishing; essentially how much time am I putting towards the projects I am trying to complete vs the busy work, or random distraction. In regards to my business I wanted to monitor the fine details such as how long was facebook, youtube, or pandora used, so I could better estimate average order fulfillment timelines. Also I wanted to track order deficiencies vs average time spent using social media to see if there was real empirical validity behind blocking social media. I think knowing what is inactive vs active, may help create more accurate data for people that are crazy about me.

Awesome! But kill my PH welcome page :( I'd love to see the global time spend on the web.
