5 utilities to use the Pomodoro technique directly from the browser

On many occasions we talked about the technique , one of those great ideas for increasing our productivity. We stress because it gives very good results even in the XXI century, although it was invented in the 80 by Francesco Cirillo.

Making a small briefing, saying that based on the work at intervals, usually 25 minutes, to which we refer to as pomodoros, and that after the end allow us to have a break of 5 minutes. This causes us to focus all our efforts in the intervals of work and get our reward in the form of rest, always keeping in check our work.

To complement other items, today I wanted to make a selection with 5 add-ons to Chrome are also in most cases be used from any browser, and will we control our activities without leaving it.

Pomodoro.me

application it is, perhaps, the most advisable to start the list. Basically we open a website where we have a timer for 25 minutes. The page title is updated with the timer, so you can jump between tabs and always attentive to time we have left to finish the pomodoro, a task that begins as soon as you press the button Pomodoro.

This is an ideal application to understand the operation, and flexible enough allowing us to take breaks but not finished the task, something we should not do that completely breaks the rules of the art.

The application can be found on the Web Store in Chrome, but fucnionar HTML5 anyone wanting to go to Pomodoro.me can run via Firefox, for example.

This time it’s an application, accessible from the New Tab page, which allows us to enter tasks or pomodoros classic that will take place during the interval of 25 minutes.

Written entirely in HTML5, it is a great idea especially for those who work mostly with the browser, and use it as easy as knowing the technique: We chose the task pressing it in the text box, work for 25 minutes, and then we take a break of 5 minutes. At 4 pomodoros we can take a
longer break.

The application will alert you audibly on arrival when the time expires and the task will be marked as done.

Even if you use the word Pomodoro on behalf Strict Pomodoro is not just an area that focuses on the famous time intervals described a few lines ago, but goes further: It blocks all sites that distract us from our work based on these intervals . No doubt, a very good idea.

The operation is very simple, and simply press the extension button to start the session pomodoros. Programmed by default in 25 minutes and breaks of 5, focuses on a list of sites to which we add Facebook and YouTube (but are added by default) to not visit them in the working sessions.

Best of all, the extension icon is updated with minutes remaining, and that time is reached it will notify you with a beep.

From the top bar not only accede to the typical controls, but you have access to the weekly report, where we see the number of pomodoros per day, or organize your desktop in the form of columns, with notes that can move from side to side to take advantage of the technique and add the typical post-it as used in offices.
