It is the easiest add-on that I have come across till now. There are no settings to configure, neither you have to use any hotkey to enable it. It silently works for you. And when 50 minutes are over, its pop-up will open automatically to remind you to take a break.
This pop up will come 2 more times with a short time delay. This is helpful when you didn’t pay attention to it. The other two pop-ups with the same message may help to catch your attention that you should take break now.
During the break period, you can perform some eye exercises to give relax to your eyes.
Spann Reminder is very simple add-on, but it can help to protect your eyes with automatic break reminder pop up. However, it would have been more useful, had it included an option to set break time, work time, and an audio clip.
