- von PMX-PSHU, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenOne of the most useful tool in this day and age.
I find my self going to sites, just for pure distraction and that had a huge down impact on my work flow.
This plugin just solved the issue. When I realize that I'm on a site with no particular reason, I block it (youtube, facebook, etc.). If I really need them for some reason (not just wondering in), I can use them, but I have to put in extra effort pausing the block to do that and that's nice about this solution.
I only can recommend this plugin for those who suffer from distraction and procrastination like me.
- von MichelleB, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 2 von 5 SternenI really want to like this extension, solely for its simplicity. But, when you pause it, it doesn't come back on unless you refresh the page. If I pause it for 5 minutes, I expect it to block the site I'm on after 5 minutes. I shouldn't have to set a separate timer.
Also, sometimes it just turns itself off and I have to go back in the settings and turn it on manually.
Finally, lately, I can't even open the settings to turn it back on.
I have ADHD and I was hoping this would be helpful with time management, but instead it's more of a hindrance.
- von Christina, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 3 von 5 SternenTwo complaints:
1 - I wish the impulse blocker would come into effect as soon as the pause timer runs out.
2 - Sometimes after the pause timer runs out I can click on different links of the blocked web page without necessarily refreshing the page, even though the url does change, thus letting me continue to access the page.
