Google Promises To Fix Their Stop Watch

Broken Stop WatchGoogle launched a neat fun search feature, a timer or stop watch feature back in August. About a week ago, the Google timer stopped ticking.

Yesterday, Google acknowledged the issue and said it is a bug and they are working on fixing it. I originally thought maybe it was something Google decided to kill off, but no, it is something they do indeed want to keep.

Google's Nealeigh said:

Thanks for taking the time to submit the report and share feedback.

The team is aware of the issue and is hard at work on a fix. The timer feature will return soon!

How soon? No one knows. For now, you'll be late for all your meetings.

They're just trying to get people to buy AdWords. (Oops, I must have hit the wrong macro key.)

I guess I missed the purpose of the timer? What is the timer supposed to do?

I use it when brewing coffee with a french press. Create a shortcut to the four minute Google timer and it's literally one click. Very handy. Thought it was gone for good. Glad it'll be back.
