Frequently Asked Questions
Does the timer make a noise when it is done?
Yes, the timer will play a ding sound when it reaches zero. The noise is produced using Flash so on the rare chance that your internet browser does not have Flash installed, it will not make a noise.
A message box will also appear in your browser informing you the timer has expired. Some computers make sounds when a box like this appears so you may hear that noise and then the timer's ding in succession.
What happens if my computer goes to sleep?
Most likely, the timer will pause if your computer goes to sleep. On a laptop, this could happen when you close the lid. This is something to consider if you are a running a long timer.
Can I make a timer full screen?
Most web browsers allow you to go into a "full screen" mode where most of the interface is hidden. Look under the View menu to select Full Screen or on Windows computers press F11.
I'm a webmaster. How do I link to a custom timer?
Our domain URLs are very easy to understand. Simply put a dash between each number and unit of time. For example, if you want a 5 minute and 30 second timer, you would link to this page:
http://www.timercountdown.net/5-minutes-30-seconds/ [Go to timer]
Remember to make sure the unit of time is singular or plurar (e.g., 1-minute vs. 2-minutes). So to make a 1 minute and 1 second timer, the link would be:
http://www.timercountdown.net/1-minute-1-second/ [Go to timer]
