How Long Have You Spent Online? Two Useful Firefox Extensions


I always seem to spend more time online than I intend to. It's like time gets away from me so I found Usage Counter a very useful tool to be more disciplined. It's a Firefox extension that tracks how much time you've spent online. If you spend too much time on sites like Digg or Facebook, you can track those specific domains and see what proportion of your online usage is tied to those sites.

Another extension I like is FoxyMeter, which increments every time you visit a page. It can be a little scary to see how many pages you've viewed so luckily (or not), it rolls back to zero after a million pages.
