Time Tracker Chrome Extension Update

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

I made a small update to Time Tracker and pushed a new version.

The update introduces an options page. The only option currently available is the enabling/disabling of idle detection. Idle detection tries to guess if you’re actually using the browser or not. It works by keeping track of your last activity (mouse movement, tab open, window change, etc). If it hasn’t detected any activity in a certain period of time, it pauses the timer. The timer resumes once activity is detected.

I received various feature requests, and this one was easy to implement. The user said that they like to keep track of projects that don’t require much activity in the browser. Reading documents, for example.

The extension has over 1000 users and a 4.5/5 star rating over 27 votes.
