Okay, let’s air the dirty laundry right away. We all browse sites we shouldn’t when we’re putting off work. StayFocusd, an extension for the Google Chrome browser, aims to keep us on task.
“StayFocusd is a productivity extension for Google Chrome that helps you stay focused on work by restricting the amount of time you can spend on time-wasting websites. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day.
It is highly configurable, allowing you to block or allow entire sites, specific subdomains, specific paths, specific pages, even specific in-page content (videos, games, images, forms, etc).”
It’s the extension you’ll love to hate. I’ve installed it and am looking forward to being more productive than ever. Also, I’m not looking forward to browsing less on sports sites (ESPN, Deadspin), gaming sites (IGN), and many more. But in case my boss is reading, not THAT many.
What sites are your go-tos? Are you man or woman enough to download StayFocusd? If so, click here.
