StayFocusd: Block Time Wasting Websites (Google Chrome Addon)

Ads by Google

How many hours are you spending in front of your computer and how productive have you been? If you’re not happy with your answer, then you should try this web app. StayFocusd is a Google Chrome extension that helps you focus when you work and block time wasting websites. It sets a timer for addictive and time-consuming sites that you visit and then blocks them for the rest of the day when the time is up.

block time wasting websites

Once you install the Chrome extension, set a timer for a specific site by right-clicking the StayFocusd icon on the Chrome navbar. Then choose “Option“ to set the timer and to add other sites that will be either allowed or blocked.

Once StayFocused is active, you will not be able to open the blocked site for the entire day after the set time is up. The green icon indicates that the site is not blocked while a red color icon with the time remaining means the site will be blocked once the timer goes off.

StayFocusd is a useful web application to force you to focus on your work for the day instead of browsing through addictive, non-productive sites.
