If you feel you are always busy, but your productivity is nothing to write home about, RescueTime is the extension you need.

This result can be invaluable as it will help you realize how those quick checks on the forums or news headlines ate up more than one hour of your day. RescueTime provides daily and weekly reports, informing you how productive you have been, the sites you wasted time on, etc.

You can also use RescueTime to set productivity reminders or block off some websites for specific periods.
