Build dread and stay humble throughout the day with the Mortalitab homepage replacement!

Your screen probably has more pixels than you have hours in your entire life.

Mortalitab displays a rectangle with one dark pixel for every hour you've already lived and one light pixel for every hour you have remaining, based on your birthday. The flashing white square is the current hour.

What will you do with the hours you have left?


  • Countdown to your death
  • Dark gray pixel for each hour you have lived
  • Light gray pixel for each hour you can expect to live, based on actuarial tables
  • Blinking pixel representing this precious instant of your life
  • A non-gender-specific reminder that despite your accomplishments, you are just a man
