Time-aware Homepage

Leave a comment

I alternate between Chrome and Firefox pretty often and one thing that annoys me is that I’ve got different bookmarks in each browser. Another thing is that depending on the time and day, I’d like different bookmarks to be more prominent. Chrome’s New Tab page is pretty handy in this regard, but it always shows me the same stuff and often lists one site multiple times.

To get out of this first-world quandry, I built a homepage that opens when I open any browser (and when I create a new tab) and shows me the bookmarks I’m most likely to need depending on the time and day.

How’s it work?

The top row are my always-on staples. Damn I love Google. The middle row is time-aware and only shows the bookmarks I want to see on the weekend. The faint bottom row are the rest of my bookmarks, lying in wait until their time to shine has come.

Each active bookmark has a letter below it, which I can press to launch that site.

Try it Out Should work in Firefox and Chrome

Change the day and time slider to see how the page looks at different times.
