comment How do I remind myself to stop browsing and start working
@RoryAlsop just using a timer app won't work for me. I don't want a timer app working all the time - I want the timer to start when I switch to chrome. And I don't want to manually start the timer every time I start browsing - I'm pretty sure I will forget to start it.

comment How do I remind myself to stop browsing and start working
@Judy D, you've nailed the problem. I do need to go to various website - my work email is web based, I need to search for solutions to problems I face while programming. And I can't say that I spend too much time on one specific website. It is more like I start with a website or email - follow the link on that or search for some interesting info from that and go off into a rabbit hole. So a timer which starts automatically when I switch to the browser and reminds me that I've been surfing for 5 mins now, will pull me back to the task at hand - I hope.
