Cool Tool: Momentum

Wednesday, September 1, 2021

What’s your most important task of the day? That’s the question the Momentum browser add-on ( asks users at the beginning of each day. The app enables its more than 3 million users to change their new tab page to a personal dashboard that can inspire them and keep them motivated.

Via the customizable dashboard, users can identify and set goals and have Momentum remind them of those personal targets, keeping them front and center. The app will also post inspirational messages throughout the day, such as “You can do it,” along with calming background images. Users can tap the on-screen to-do list to organize their day’s priorities and track their progress. They can likewise add the weather and links to their dashboard.


With the Balance mode feature, users can set the time for when Momentum turns on and off for the day, hiding such elements as the to-do list, notes, and clock so that users can wind down at the end of the day. Momentum is compatible with many internet browsers, including Chrome and Firefox.
