Q. Can you repeat what Rooster does?
Rooster is a Chrome extension that:
  • Tracks ⏱  your active time on website(s) you’ve been working on and shows that data every time you open a New Tab.
  • Nudges 🔔  you via Push Notifications when you lose focus and start surfing website(s) you define unproductive.
Q. Got it, but how does it work?

1. Rooster keeps a log of your time on website(s) you've been working on, locally in your computer and shows it every time you open a new tab, keeping you informed (and top of your game to stay focused and productive 😎 )

Important note: Since we save your data locally, we don't have access to your data at all. So there's no way for us to sell or use your data in any form.


2. Users can use the section "Add Notification" where they can add notifications for websites they get distracted by or think could be unproductive for them. Few examples are Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, YouTube (if you work in above-listed companies, we wonder what website makes you distractive 😅 ).


3. When you surf website(s) you added notification(s) for, for more than the time limit you choose, Rooster nudges you via Push Notifications. Here’s a Demo video showcasing that:

Q. But what about my Privacy?

As mentioned above, we save your data locally and we don't have access to your data at all. So there's no way for us to sell or use your data in any form.

And even if we change the code in future, we'll notify you first. That's our promise! 👊

Q. Thanks! But why Push Notifications?

We believe that blocking websites doesn’t work. Mostly because it’s a habit that we’re fighting against. We cannot change habits in a single day / week / month. It takes time to form a new habit and a lot more to break one.


Habits are not changed by stopping / blocking what you’re currently addicted to doing. Instead, what has worked for many, is slowly doing different things on top of what they're already habituated to do. That’s what we want to accomplish with Rooster. And that’s why we are giving the option to nudge yourself via Push Notifications rather than blocking websites altogether.

Q. Amazing! Is it Free?
Yes! But we are segerating the product in two categories:
Q. Why Rooster Pro?

We need to keep this Rooster alive, make him eat and pay the staff who's taking care of it. Just kidding! 🤣

Truth be told, we are a team of two people and have our day jobs. We can't build a full fledged product parallel to working full-time. We need clear motivations to do so. That's why we're keeping the bare minimum features which can and surely will help you stay informed and focused with your browsing data, and putting all the advanced features in Rooster Pro, which will be paid.
