MeeTimer is so f**king annoying. I love it.


MeeTimer is a Firefox extension that tracks how you spend your time on the internet. That sounds invasive. But it doesn’t send the info to anyone, it just uses it to yell at you. You define sites as belonging to different groups:

  • work
  • communication
  • search
  • procrastination

then MeeTimer tracks how much you spend doing each, and depending on what mode you have the extension in, it discourages you from wasting time.

I’ve needed this for a long time. If you can’t understand why anyone might want this, good for you. But if you’re like me — maybe you have a bit of a technology infatuation, maybe has infiltrated your daily routine, maybe you’ve seen hours fly by without a second of work being done as you find yourself immersed in Wikipedia pages, blogs, networking sites, etc. — then you know you want this.
