Here is a Chrome extension to put productivity right on to your New Tab Page. Dayboard – New Tab Page replace the new tab page with a to do list that helps you focus on your most important tasks each day.
✔ a minimal todo list
✔ focus mode that shows you one task at a time
✔ a history to show you your progress
✔ keep your tasks in sync on different machines (via Google Sync)
✔ connect with team members to keep track of what everyone’s working on
✔ turn off your reminders when your work day is over
The Focus Mode is really useful when you need to get a single important task to focus on. It works like a reminder each time you open a new tab, most of the times to move to distractions (at least in my case!)
The Settings and Login options are set to “Coming Soon” so I am hoping that some kind of syncing is coming soon to the app. A todo list that won’t sync across machines is not much of use, especially on the Chrome ecosystem.
There is a lot of work pending on this extension, and hopefully we will see all that sometime soon. But for now, give it a try just for its simplicity and good looks!
