Cool Tech Tool: Momentum

I recently saw a cool browser home page while looking at a friend’s laptop:

This is Momentum, a browser plugin available for Chrome (so far).  It provides a replacement home tab with a number of features:

  • A daily relaxing background photo of a beautiful landscape
  • The current time
  • A personalized welcome message
  • A quote of the day
  • A place to set your intention for today’s main focus point
  • A widget to add shortcuts to links
  • The local weather
  • A built in task list
  • The ability to Google search directly from the screen

Here’s another screenshot of my Momentum page with a few boxes maximized:

So far, I just love it!  Additionally, Momentum is free!  Try it yourself at
