Mortalitab

Download on the Chrome webstore, or check out the blog post about its creation.

Replace your new tab page with a personal reminder that you will die. Build dread and stay humble throughout the day with the Mortalitab homepage replacement!

Your screen probably has more pixels than you have hours in your entire life.

Mortalitab displays a rectangle with one dark pixel for every hour you've already lived and one light pixel for every hour you have remaining, based on your birthday. The flashing white square is the current hour.

What will you do with the hours you have left?

FEATURES

  • Blinking pixel representing this precious instant of your life

  • You will die
