    Pros:Β 

    Decent looking and makes me serious

    Cons:Β 

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

    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:Β 

    Fast. Neat and Motivating

    Cons:Β 

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

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

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!

but isn't this anxiety inducing though?
Mubaris NKMaker@mubaris Β· Full Stack Developer
@iamedwardtay For me, it's working like a charm. It helps me push through the tasks and helping me focus. I guess it depends on the personality πŸ˜›

Is it possible to set a specific date to measure progress (e.g. birthday)?
