BrowserTickTock By: Job Bautista

About this add-on

BrowserTickTock is a fork of DerBrowserTimer. It is a timer, clock, and alarm, all in one extension!

BrowserTickTock allows you to set an audible and/or visual alarm by specifying the alarm time in one of three ways:

  • as a relative count down time (e.g. set the alarm to go off in thirty minutes),
  • as an absolute target time (e.g. set the alarm to go off at 7:45 am), or
  • as a regular interval (e.g. set the alarm to go off hourly at five minutes before the hour).

In addition, Browser Tick Tock can be set to signal the hour and/or half hour with an alternate tone like a cuckoo clock.

The program is functionally, if not visually, patterned after a clock radio, with a simple interface consisting of a digital time readout and several indicator icons that can be placed anywhere on one of the browser toolbars. Left-clicking on the time will toggle between several display formats. Right clicking will open the main application menu where you can enable the alarm, access Browser Tick Tock's settings, and display Help information.

That's not all! It has other features too:

  • Multiple time and date display formats. Menu bar clock can display the current time (in 12- or 24-hour format), the current date, browser uptime, or the time remaining until the alarm, if any, is set to fire.
  • Optional alarm notifications include popup window, alert slider, and audible alarm, in addition to the reasonably unobtrusive menu bar icons used to indicate alarm. Can also load one or more web pages at alarm time.
  • Choice of alarm and cuckoo sounds. Currently includes four standard alarm sounds, four cuckoo sounds, and the option to specify a .wav file for either.
  • Snooze function: click the alarm icon on the menu bar or use the snooze bar in the alarm notification popup window to temporarily silence the alarm.
  • Configurable alarm timeout and auto reset option. Alarm can turn itself off or reset automatically, if desired.


In 0.1.4, support for Basilisk, Interlink, Ambassador, and Borealis Navigator has been added. Support for Interlink and Ambassador is limited (you can't use the Load URL feature for example).
