Nice! Reminds me of the macOS menubar app @AndreyAzimov made: https://www.producthunt.com/post... Handy in case you don't use Google Chrome or prefer to use another New Tab extension.

@andreyazimov @marckohlbrugge Big fan of that one! Love that it's paid and will therefore support the maker's income!

The tab should be updated only once while opening. That would be enough. Or controlled updates to the DOM would be great! Anything that doesnt take up 30% CPU would be neat!

Pros:

Decent looking and makes me serious

Cons:

The CPU usage is very very high for an empty tab mainly because there are so many DOM updates happening!

After your review, I checked CPU usage on multiple systems. I'm sure that it doesn't use 30% of your CPU. At max 20% maybe. Check this snapshot if you don't believe me -
I just put together a new release which blocks the DOM updating if the tab is out of focus. So, basically this issue invalid now

Each time I open a new tab, it reminds me how fast the time is moving! Definitely motivates me to be more productive!

Pros:

Fast. Neat and Motivating

Cons:

No option to set fixed background? I personally find some gradients too colourful
