    Default subXtimer: online timer with vocal countdown up to 60 seconds

    hi

    Im working on a cubetimer with a human voice counting down.
    if you are trying to get under a certain point, for instance 30 sec, you can lit it count down from 30 to 0. thisway you know how much time you have left the whole time during the solve. it also has a nice background music wich gives it a nice feel.

    (it loads slow because its on a free hosting service right now)

    I love the background music while it's counting down XD. I probably would never use this because I want to see my times, not just countdown, but cool.

    yes thats exactly what it does to me too haha also because you hear the tension rising in the music. i just started making this today and i had no idea what it was going to give but i like it, it can be nice if you want something diffrent every once in a while.

    Haha, this is hilarious. Almost cheesy, but just cool enough.

    Some suggestions:
    - Use CCT voices! I wanna hear Dene.
    - Have a version that counts up and announces the final time. This could be cool background music for, say, on-stage performances.
    - Don't reinvent the wheel (e.g. use a good scrambler, and don't try to write / adapt one on your own).

    It comes up with this for me:
    Your browser doesn't support HTML5 canvas.
    I'm using Internet Explorer 8. Any chance of fixing this?

    Probably not... IE8 compatibility could be in a future release... (The timer, not HTML5)
