Make bookmarks re-open periodically: send time capsules to your future self!

Image from store Time Capsule
Description from store The best person to send you links matching your interests is a time traveling version of yourself: create a time capsule by choosing when the current tab should be re-opened; this will bookmark the current tab, and program to re-open it in the future, according to the choosen periodicity, be it an hour, a day, a month, a year, a decade! It will then re-open at this periodicity until the end of times. Or until you un-bookmark it. Why would I need this? Do you have a bookmark folder with 10,000 things-you-should-absolutely-keep-in-mind but never actually re-open once bookmarked? Now, if you don't come back to those things, those things come back to you! Works very well when learning a new subject: you open many links which for most don't make sense now, but would probably make sense in a few months. (that worked awesome for me when learning web development). Works very well as a memo/alarm mechanism: "Now isn't the time to deal with [enter the task on which you plan to procrastinate], but I got to see this page in X hours/days/etc." In some ways, the logo may look like a bow tie. Bow ties are cool. Top features Built with the latest WebExtension standard: shouldn't break until next decade addon revolution Super customizable periodicity: if the offered buttons aren't enough, click on the popup (to get focus on it) and start typing the precise number of a time unit you want. Integrated with the browser bookmarks, which gives numerous advantages: Pages you bookmark this way will show up when you're searching a page (if you activated bookmark suggestion) All your time capsules are grouped in a folder in your bookmarks, which makes them easy to browse/search Easy to export/import: simply import export your bookmarks and your time capsules will come along! It's libre/open source Comes with (poor) time-traveling jokes Sending links to your past self isn't possible yet, but could come in a future version. It might a premium feature, but you can pre-register by making a donation. Advices to keep it sane Do not keep too many bookmarks with a short periodicity: that's gonna be very spammy. Rule of thumb: if a tab re-opens 3 times, and you closed it immediatly the 3 times without considering acting upon it, deal with it now or un-bookmark it. Avoid time paradoxes at all costs. If you like this addon, you might like this other project of mine: inventaire.io, a web app to share your books inventory with your friends!
