Addicted to the Web? Don't compromise your health! Continuously staring at the computer can cause headaches, blurred vision, neck pain, fatigue, dry eyes. "Take A Break" extension tries to help you avoid or reduce these problems. It reminds you when to take a break while you are surfing the Web.
- A little icon on the status bar will be flashing every 15 minutes to remind you a short break. You should sit back and close your eyes, or look outside the window for a while.
- A pop-up dialog will remind you a big break every hour. You should stand up, get a cup of coffee, do some stretching, or go freshen up.
- You can adjust the timers according to your own needs.
Note: If you are using a newer version of Firefox, the Add-on Bar (status bar) is hidden by default so the Take A Break icon is not visible. You can use Ctrl+/ or go to the menu Firefox->Options->Add-on Bar to show the Add-on Bar. We are working on the next version of Take A break to allow showing the Take A Break icon on the toolbar.
