- by Firefox user 11321600, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Wow, just what I've been wanting. I've been trying to find something like this for ages but have never been able to determine the right words to search for. I'm not sure if user reviews show up in Add-on search results but in case they do, I would suggest relevant key-words are "time management", "web timer", "selective website blocker", "website filter", "time waster", "hosts file" . Maybe the dev can add these to the description? :)
For anyone looking for a more feature-ful extension, I'll note this is forked from another extension called "Impulse Blocker" that gives you some more options for timers etc., but after trying both I prefer the simple experience Digital Detox provides, and the more polished user experience. The default blocklist is a nice convenience and makes it easy to figure out how it works right out of the box. I'm still not quite clear on what the statistics mean on the settings page, some tool-tips there would be nice.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoThanks for the great feedback! The simple experience was indeed my intent with this version of Impulse Blocker :) To improve the statics I have added several tooltips to explain the meaning of the columns.
- by Bruno Moreira-Guedes, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Good idea, yet a too "radical" implementation. Perhaps a "time control" or something like that would be a cool improvement.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoFor more control you can maybe try the extension Impulse Blocker. Digital Detox is a fork from this extension with a focus on simplicity and great UI. Impulse Blocker gives more control.
