How to add a clock with alarm in Chrome [Tip]

Another article [1] covered how you can add a customizable alarm clock to Firefox. In the same manner, Google Chrome users can also add a clock and alarm with the use of a third-party extension called Browser Clock. That adds a clock to the browser which you can open from the toolbar or context menu.

Head over to the Browser Clock page [2] to add it to Google Chrome. There press the + Free button to install, and you’ll then find the Browser Clock icon on the toolbar. Click that button to open the clock in the shot below.

Browser Clock has some additional options on its context menu submenu. Selecting Most Visited from Browser Clock’s context menu submenu will show you a list of your most visited websites as below. In addition, you can also select a Screen Capture option on the submenu that will take a snapshot of the website page and open the captured shot in a new tab.
