Lazarus – the Saviour add-on

Imagine this scenario – you are filling in a form, which has a couple dozen fields or more. You are about to fill in the last field and all of a sudden, your internet stops working. Or your browser becomes unresponsive. You get the picture! 😱

The anger!

I believe that quite a few of us experienced a similar scenario. And I am not sure which emotion prevails when we learn that nothing we entered into the form fields is there now. Is it the confusion, anger, fury, agony, or hopelessness, or a mix of all of those? I could never tell 🙂

After a couple of times (let’s say that ~twenty times can still be considered as a couple of times, just this once 😎) of having the aforementioned scenario in front of me, I found the solution! Introducing Lazarus!

After adding this extension to your browser, you’ll notice this small icon in every form you fill:

Lazarus - the Saviour add-on 1

This means that you no longer need to worry and that everything you insert into a form will be saved!

Lazarus - the Saviour add-on 2

This add-on is definitely a stress-preventer 🙂 I spend most of my working hours at Automattic writing replies to our customers and I no longer need to copy my replies in tickets before I hit the Send button. More importantly, I don’t have to worry whether I forgot to copy my reply before sending it. Yes!

Useful Add-ons?

During the last 5 years, I came across lots of great browser add-ons and I ended up using quite a few of them. In one of my next posts, I’ll share all the add-ons I use on a daily basis and how they help me. Cheers 🍷

Improving Productivity and Rescuing Time

Lately, my focus is set on improving my productivity at work. I am trying to improve both the quality and the quantity of the work I do, without sacrificing my free time.

I realized that my greatest enemy but also my best friend in increasing producitivity is actually – time. I have to know when I’m wasting it and when I’m using it effectively. So, I searched a bit and I found an amazing app which was just what I needed – RescueTime. It has lots of cool features which help me locate my distractions and become more productive. I’ve been using it for a few weeks and I love it! Also, I was able to get rid of a few bad habits which were preventing me from being more productive. There are still more of them left, though 😀

Nevertheless, definitely take the RescueTime app for a spin!
