ADJUSTABLE

You can set a different time and precision in the URL. Use a precision of 10 to avoid distracting people.

VISIBLE/AUDIBLE NOTIFICATION

Rings a bell and turns the screen red (unless you specify other colours) when time is up.

COLOUR TRANSITIONS

Make the colours start at blue, go red at 4 seconds and black at 0 seconds or use your imagination to let people know time is running out.

RESTART

You can make the timer restart automatically at a certain time. Hitting the spacebar will also restart the timer (and make all of this text go away).

VERSATILE

Use it to keep folks focussed on time in other situations - like lightning talks, where you can use these settings.

FULL SCREEN

Make the text bigger to fill the whole screen. This is CMD+ or CTRL+ in most browsers - or via the menu if you're using IE.

DOWNLOAD

Due to popular demand, you can now download the timer use it offline. Just unzip the file and double-click the index.html file inside.
