Let's just say you're getting tired and you decided to boil water at midnight. You decided to take a short nap...but little did you know that nap would've cost you your life. A simple question to ask yourself is "should I have set a timer?"
Sure, you could've, but how long does it take for one person to set a timer on their phone? For all I know is, it isn't efficient enough and in-fact a struggle to set timers on phones.
So what else am I always on besides my phone? Well, that's my PC of course. Then I went to look for timers and found out about Google's very own search-term-specific one.
Google has a timer-function. It can be used by simply searching (w/ Google):

Now, the only thing missing is a way to set a specific time with the option to begin that timer immediately.
How do I use Google's Timer function to set a specific time with the option to begin timer immediately?
- There should be a way to set a specific time and option to begin timer via parameters, like so:
timer 30 min
timer 55 sec.
timer 1 hour and 22 min
- Instead of using Google's timer you can use

- abbreviations work

- for the most part, it's the clear winner
- setting a timer w/ a keyboard is much more quicker, effecient, & reliable.
- my hands on a keyboard obliterates me with my mouth next to a mic or my fingers on a phone.
- I'm constantly on a browser.
- parameters should also work with all sorts of abbreviations
- minutes vs. min / mins
- seconds vs. sec / secs
