Google Stopwatch

30 days ago, the Google Search timer and stopwatch feature stopped working. Well, I am glad to report, that the stopwatch was fixed and it is now working again.

I literally checked a couple of times a day and now it is working. Here is a GIF of it in action for a search on [set a timer for 10 minutes].
