Keep Track of Time

time-tracker Sitting at the keyboard for hours on end, it is really easy to get off task, get distracted and get to where you forget to check what time it is and what time you started.  Thankfully the TimeTracker extension for Firefox helps you keep track of how much time you browse.

Some of the features of this awesome addition to any Firefox install include:

  • Tracks browsing time across sessions
  • Pauses automatically when you stop browsing
  • Reset counter
  • Pause toggle per window
  • List ‘work’ sites that should not count
  • Tooltip showing total time today, since last reset and since installing.

TimeTracker is a great way to keep tabs (not the browser kind) on yourself and the time you are spending Online.  For those of us who spend our days working within the Firefox interface it also is a helpful reminder to tell us we have worked enough and we might deserve a break.

LeechBlock

Want to raise your productivity, but can not drag yourself away from the time sucking Web sites you like to visit on the Web? Do you spend more time customizing your MySpace page than working on that pile of articles you should be writing? We have all found ourselves having our time leeched away – and now we can do something about it.

LeechBlock helps you gain control back by allowing you to block certain Web sites that suck away your day. Here is some more information from the developers of the extension.

LeechBlock is a simple productivity tool designed to block those time-wasting sites that can suck the life out of your working day. (You know: the ones that rhyme with ‘Blue Cube’, ‘Hash Pot’, ‘Sticky Media’, and the like.) All you need to do is specify which sites to block, between which time periods, and on which days of the week. You can specify up to four sets of sites to block, with different times and days for each set.

Firefox 2 is coming along really nicely. I just downloaded the RC1 yesterday, and things are looking about as good as they can get. I could see how this newest version would help people get things done a lot faster than in the past as well. Need a good example of this in action? I found one over at CMSReport.com.

Over the past few months I found that Firefox 2 is a browser that has change my browsing style and it will likely do the same for you.
