  • (2021-04-28) Teri-Ann Carryl: super useful! would love a stopwatch feature as well, just to track how much time is passing without a limit.
  • (2021-01-17) Pam Buchanan: It's not working. I click on the icon and it opens the options page. It's useless so I'm uninstalling.
  • (2020-12-12) Mahmoud Elkheshen: Nice and worked well.
  • (2020-11-06) Kongo Landwalker: Instantly favourite. It is comfortable to be able to start timer without opening any new page
  • (2020-10-12) David: Doesn't do anything at all. Can't even start. Can only get the options page. No way to set a timer.
  • (2020-02-22) Vasilis V.: It's nice that you can set as many timer events as you want. It would be also nice to be able to select from different alarm sounds and also how long they should last, as well at what volume. The existing alarm sound is very short and someone in another room might miss it. In terms of simplicity it is very good.
  • (2020-02-15) Suhas A: Total B.S, no longer works
  • (2019-11-01) Gianmarco David: This is awesome for anyone who likes plain text/command line. I just wish there were more sounds available
  • (2019-09-29) Sue GR: Simple, easy to use. Thank You! Suggestion: Would appreciate other tone options for the timer notification.
  • (2019-08-27) Мансур Истрафилов: Minimalist and perferct.
  • (2019-07-15) Quan Liu: Nice.If I add a reminder successfully, The extension can have a hint of successful operation, That's perfect. Thank you.
  • (2019-06-06) Matthew Sobecky: Appears to only work by opening its own tab. Uninstalled.
  • (2019-05-07) Jakub Unold: Love the extension, although would love it even more if you could add little box next to the icon showing how much time's left :) It'd help a lot
  • (2019-04-28) USEL mağazasi: Doesn't work at all - impossible to add new time (
  • (2019-03-24) Tiger leclair: Very good. There isnt any documentation or links if you click on the extention icon though. the only information is in this page, the description, so if you forget where you got it, you might be very confused.
  • (2019-03-01) It was difficult to use because it lacked a description of how to use it. Entering "tm + space" has found a way to enter the timer
  • (2019-01-26) Juan Moises Gonzalez Winther: looks nice, but.. I didn't understand how to use the comands :(
  • (2018-12-28) Bartłomiej Szczotka: very nice tool! congratulation for author!
  • (2018-11-30) Iakov Davydov: Just what I needed.
  • (2018-10-25) Sleuth Clinic: Couldn't get it to work, so I couldn't use it...From the more recent reviews, it looks like this extension stopped working properly months ago and needs to be removed from the Chrome Web Store...
  • (2018-08-28) Roger Brownlie: No idea how to use it. No instructions.
  • (2018-07-16) pooj chandra: simple, easy to use, few points of improvement: 1) Add a remove delete button 2) User should be able to sort the list of timers on any of the columns, especially the notification time column 3) Somehow sync it with your phone if user is not near computer If 1 or more feature is implemented, then I would love to give it 5 stars.
  • (2018-07-14) Arslan Kabir: Horrible
  • (2018-07-10) Shimon Carroll: Great Timer! Really useful, thanks for the effort, 5/5
  • (2018-06-19) aione: 好神奇
  • (2018-06-15) linky-pie: Horrible and very bad and confusing. Do Not buy this app!!
  • (2018-06-14) zeppy13131: Perfect! I don't know what people are complaining about—that the alarm is "just plain text", etc. When time's up, a (very noticeable) message pops up in Windows's Notification area, and text-to-speech says the text you typed. If you need something fancier, I'm sure you can find it—but this extension's fine for those of us who want something quick and easy.
  • (2018-05-23) It works perfectly
  • (2018-04-08) connor maynes: An elegant solution! Thank you for putting this together. I love how you integrate this with the browser.
  • (2018-02-23) Janet Brien: This timer doesn't work anymore. Should be deleted from the store.
  • (2018-02-19) Abdullah AL-Faraj: unusable
  • (2018-01-17) Mia Soto: too confusing too simple

    as title tks!
  • (2020-07-16, v:0.5.0) Hui Ping Lai: A few timers at once
    Hello, thank you so much for Omnibox Timer, i have been using it a lot and i really like it! I tend to add one timer at a time according to the Pomodoro technique so normally i'll type "25m Pause" then when the timer goes off, i'll type another "5m Continue work". It is till recently that i thought that i could just type a whole session at once like this: "25 Pause 1" "30m Continue Work 2" "55m Pause 2" "60m Continue Work 3" and so on. This way, i can actually reduce the time setting the timer every time i'm done with one timer and it just keeps the running, if you get what i mean. So i was wondering if i can actually type everything at once and press enter, instead of pressing enter after every setting.

    No clear description on how to use this timer. Can't stop or delete a timer that's set. Uninstalled this app in a few minutes after installing it.

    There needs to be the ability to delete or cancel a timer that has already been set. This is a critical function for an extension like this.

    Thank you for your greet app. Please, add the option to creating two or more timer in one command. For instance like this: 50m timer1; 10m timer2 P.S. And deleting timers is very useful too.

  • (2016-05-28, v:0.4.2) Robert Markowitz: Sound
    Idea for Omnibox Timer sounds great, but I can't use it if it doesn't sound an alarm as well as showing a message. If I'm away from my computer at the designated time, I wouldn't know the timer went off till I got back.
