Crowd Workers (browser extension)

The free Crowd Workers browser tool aims to provide Amazon Mechanical Turk workers with enough information to make educated decisions on which tasks to accept. The extension is downloaded and runs in the Chrome browser, tracking workers’ activity on the platform. It logs the time when workers start and finish a task and how much they were paid. The extension aggregates data from all users and computes hourly rates for tasks. The extension:

  • Recommends tasks;
  • Provides information on the requesters’ rejection percentage;
  • Enables workers to keep a list of requesters they want to work with again, and those they want to avoid;
  • Enables workers to set goals and alerts.
