The place called Google is not only for search, but also for many other things as well, including this new live timer. Thanks, now I can have a live Timer inside my browser without any 3rd party tools or apps.
Let’s say I want to set a quick timer for 4 minutes, I can simply time “Timer 4 min” or “4 min timer” in Google search box or the address bar if you are using Chrome or IE when default search engine is set to Google.
What about seconds? No problem.
Not only can you stop, reset the timer, but also make it sound, if you have a speaker hooked up on your computer.
Heck, you can have it run in full screen mode, which is useful when you have a duel-monitor setup.
If you have Google app installed on your Windows 8 tablet and use it a lot, you can run this live timer on Google App directly as well, in full screen mode by default.
As for Bing, at the time when I was writing this post, it doesn’t offer a same live timer as Google does. Not a big deal, but it would be nice to have.
