StayFocusd has your back.
Block any sites that take up a lot of your time. You can also block the entire Internet, except for the sites you allow. This mode allows you to focus as much as possible and not be distracted.
Set the rules for blocking by days, exactly when it is most important for you to be in focus and not waste time on distracting sites.
Set individual time settings when you need to be as productive as possible.
Phenomenal for those of us who over-estimate our self control. It's almost scary that I'll instinctively open multi tabs and start opening up my most frequented websites - it's like some subconscious automated procrastination process. The difference is that with StayFocusd, I'll see that I should be on there and get back to work.
Love this extension. I accidentally set my time for a blocked page at 10 minute max (meant to do 30). Went to change it when it was warning me that my time was almost up - and the dialog boxes that popped up (about a dozen, but you can stop them if you choose) had me in stitches. Works great and has unexpected humor. What more can you want?
This app is among the greatest things in the world... breaking normalized browsing cycles has helped me reach much greater levels of productivity. My earnest thanks go to you, awesome developer person(s).
I have a big problem with being distracted by many things. Often stepping away from work to be distracted. This takes me one step further on my journey to actually continuing my profession. When I need to work, I set this program and I stick to it. It makes me stick to my work a lot better. It doesn't help 100%, but my workflow is leaps and bounds faster because of it. After not having it for a while, I had to go back to it, because it helped so much before, as I still couldn't will myself to focus, like this app allows. It's nice, to say the least and I recommend it to all my friends with similar problems.
I wish I had discovered it earlier. Extremely useful extension which helps to overcome an awful habit to waste hours for scrolling some useless sites. It is even life-saving in some sense :) The developers created such a simple, but highly useful thing which improves lives of people. Thank you a lot!
