Online Egg Timer offers three countdown timers on one screen and allows you to either set only one timer or run the three concurrently with variable settings. It requires no registration. Just visit the site, set countdown timers with the up and down arrows, and click "start timers" says Free Technology for Teachers.

Timer Tab from the Chrome Web Store is used both online and offline. It offers countdown timer, alarm clock and stopwatch functionality. The website edition of Timer Tab is used only online.
