Ever wondered how much time you actually spend on a particular webpage, social networking sites, reading news, etc., while using your Google Chrome browser? If yes, then this tutorial can help you track time spent on different webpages using Google Chrome. It can be done with this handy extension, known as ‘Trackr’.
Trackr monitors each and every second you spend on each individual webpage and shows result in new tab of Google Chrome. It will show a beautiful pie chart and list of webpages on which you spend time. Thus, this extension does two tasks beautifully. At first, it can help you check which website you visit the most, and secondly, it will turn the default new tab into a more useful new tab.
Above visible screenshot shows the pie chart generated by this Google Chrome extension and details of the time spent by me on different webpages in new tab. Hovering your mouse cursor on pie chart will also show you the website URL and time spent by you so far on that particular website.
Key Features of This Free Trackr Extension are:
- As soon as you will move to a particular webpage, it will start monitoring the time of that webpage.
- The timer will continue even after restarting the browser or opening the same webpage again.
- You can also clear the whole pie chart and list of webpages in a single shot to reset the timer.
