The amount of scrolling you do on the Web on a daily basis, particularly on sites like Mail Online where pages seem to go on forever, really adds up.
Scroll-o-Meter is a fun new Chrome extension that keeps track of how far your finger has travelled.
The tool automatically detects your screen size and keeps a running total of the distance you’ve scrolled (in miles or kilometers), awarding you achievements as you go.
The best part is that it adds a little runner to the bottom of your screen who strides across it as you scroll. You can make the figure disappear though if it starts to get on your nerves.
There’s also a standalone Scroll-o-Meter site where you can keep the runner pacing the page endlessly if you don’t want to actually download the extension.
