Best free countdown timer

Wow, a FREE countdown timer that allows you to take an action after the timer ends. LOVE IT! It's also simple and there's no bloat. Duno about the coding side of things, haven't checked if it slows down my site, but from the features I'm impressed. Please keep this one updated, and don't take away any of the current free features as you grow. Feel free to add extra stuff (like color-schemes and themes) and charge for it.
