tips on time management-working on the computer, Pomodoro , blockers

Hi Folks, I am writing for some tips on time management for when doing work on the computer. I like the Pomodoro Technique and am looking for an online pomodoro timer, that you don't have to download or pay for. I really like the marinara timer, but it is kinda glitchy. Do you have suggestions for something similar to this? Also, I work with headphones on, so how cool would it be for the timer to say, 5 mins left , and pomodoro 1 is complete start 5 minute break.

How to block those slide in or pop up boxes on websites

What are those slide in or pop up boxes on websites called? They often block the view or darken the entire screen until clicked away. This is different than pop-ups that used to appear before gaining access to a website--there are blockers for that and I use them. I most always use Chrome as my browser. Is there a way to prevent these newer kind of annoying & delaying boxes?

Cure for latest flavor of website cruft?

Popups. They're baaaack! Half the websites out there seem to have decided (roughly all at the same time) that full width toolbars or promotional bars that rise up at screen bottom and cover up content, or slide-in promotional boxes that obtrude themselves from screen lower left or lower right or both and cover up content, are absolutely wonderful ideas. Ad-blockers don't seem to think they're ads since what they're flacking for is the same site you're already on (The VERY NEXT New York Times story you'll want to read is...) rather than something in a different domain. Is there any hope of blocking these? Thanks very much!
