Chrome Extension: Timer
This one is as simple as it gets. This extension sits up next to the omnibox and is easily set. It offers minimal buttons and set up time. If you'd like to add this to your Chrome browser, you may do so from the Chrome Web Store Extensions page.
Omnibox Timer Extension
If you're unfamiliar with what the Omnibox is in Google Chrome, it is the bar located at the top where the web address appears. There is a really slick extension known as the Omnibox Timer that goes a little further than the regular extension described above. Once installed, all you have to do is type "tm" and your time limit in the omnibox and the extension is activated. Then, once the timer has expired, a customizable message is read aloud. The default message is "Timer Done!"
