Is there an online count down timer/alarm clock that gives you nudge when a set time is up?

I do not want it to play a sound, but rather give me a notification that I can see (like when you get a msn message)

Check out Aero Timer extension for Chrome

You can either do a count down or set a time for the alarm to go off. The extension icon shakes when the time is up and it also sends you a desktop notification. The only down side is that does play a sound as well, which at the moment, you cannot turn off.

thx the one at aerotimer.com works great – Pacerier Jun 17 '11 at 16:51

http://www.timer-tab.com will do that on Google Chrome / Chromium. Check out the options.

Note that you can't disable sound notification.

Disclosure: I wrote this web app.

why don't you add a "tab notification" like the one we have on messenger? – Pacerier Nov 1 '11 at 8:39
what do you mean whith tab notification? – brillout.com Nov 1 '11 at 19:03
For example, if I switch a window, it will "blink". I've seen some webapps do that so I think it is possible – Pacerier Nov 3 '11 at 0:11
