Really, a quite wonderful add-on. If you REALLY want to procrastinate, of course you will find ways around it, but the option to disallow changing settings while the site is being blocked is a nice feature.
vaadettiği şeyi tam anlamıyla yapıyor. ayarları biraz karışık gibi görünse de çok kısa zamandan alışılıyor.
Really saving my time from sites like Facebook,YouTube...Kudos to developer...definitely will pay after using for sometime :)
Easy to configure and highly configurable. The add-on is great if you want to block a certain site (or set of sites) for certain time windows on certain days.
An absolute godsend for students. I know I'm in the same boat as many people. Ill be working on a paper and after 30 minutes I tell myself "Oh I'll just go check [insert site here] and then get right back to work. Before you know it I've wasted about 40 minutes of time that could be spent working on homework.
This helps a lot
So I suffer from [undiagnosed] acute online ADD, and struggle to get anything done in a meaningful time frame. This add-on is amazing.
I have it set up so I can have a ten minute break every hour, and then it locks out any recreational sites I request, forcing me to stay on track. Also, if you tick the 'actively block websites' (or something like it) in the 'how to block' tab, it will actually kick you off the page, and send you straight back to work.
Long story short, THIS ADD-ON IS SOOO WORTH DOWNLOADING, and I couldn't be more thrilled with it.
The addon is awesome. Although there are some things that is missing. For example, if you click a link on a website that is blocked, the time you spend on the linked website doesn't count! And also, if you are on a blocked website and the time is up, it won't block it until you reload the page.
Leaving aside those few missing features, the addon is excellent.
Thanks for the review! You're right about the first point (it might be implemented in a future version) but the second feature is already implemented. Look for the setting "Actively block pages on these sites..." under "How to Block" in LB Options.
Helped me gain a lot of time for my work. Thanks!!
This plugin has drastically increased my attention span. After checking the right boxes, it's enough of a hassle to deactivate the plugin for me not to bother and continue working.
I hate this add-on so much. However it is the only way I actually do work, so its not that bad.
This is a great piece of software well designed GUI.
Just got the add-on and I am excited! :))
Really helped me to save my precious time in more productive job.
Great to have multiple sets to block at different times. The "X minutes every Y hours" limit is much nicer than a single timeout -- it means I can limit myself to 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon. The countdown timer visible in the navigation bar is a great feature not seen on other blockers. Having options of no password, a user-defined password, or a random string to enter is much nicer than the draconian access control measures that some blockers foist on users. Linking to the blocked URL is a nice touch for when it becomes unblocked.
Today, while I was trying to open Facebook, the message from Leechblock popped up, explaining that I had blocked this website myself.
The last line hooked me.
"If LeechBlock has improved your life, please consider supporting its continued development by making a contribution or writing a review."
So, here I am, writing a review because I'm student and I don't have any money to donate. This is my testimony, this add-on is a lifesaver.
I've blocked various kinds of Social Networking Websites and some blogs that spoil it for me. And they stay blocked! It's like I've stopped the time to get more time for myself!
Please, if you want your life to turn around, install this right now and feel the difference.
And always stay happy!
My cat likes me much more because I'm on facebook less. I'm an illustrator and do much of my work on my computer, so the internet procrastination twilight zone can be deadly to my productivity. I've had to set it up to where I can't go in and turn off the block while something is being blocked. I have terrible self-control and facebook and searching for random stuff on amazon are my two worst time sucks.
It's fantastic! Nothing's missing at all, and it's totally compatible, I love it!
Though it'd be cool if you had the feature of showing a custom block message, but whatever
I have the tendency to procrastinate and so I've set it up to block my favorite sites so I focus on my studies.
Leechblock does its job and does it well.
I've noticed just in general that I've been much more productive all-around.
My new favorite productivity extension!
From the website:
You can specify up to six sets of sites to block, with different times and days for each set. You can block sites within fixed time periods (e.g., between 9am and 5pm), after a time limit (e.g., 10 minutes in every hour), or with a combination of time periods and time limit (e.g., 10 minutes in every hour between 9am and 5pm). You can also set a password for access to the extension options, just to slow you down in moments of weakness!
It helps remind me that I need to stay on task, but it's easy to disable if my schedule changes (unless you don't want it to be - you can make it nearly impossible to disable).
The user interface is simple. But the documentation is lacking. And the addon does not always perform as expected. For example, N tabs open from Youtube cause the timer to go N times faster in some situations.
Excellent add on! It is simple and intuitive. Blocking works great and giving yourself some access through the delay function helps limit the use of non-essential websites.
great add-on! Improved my productivity..
Amazing productivity boost by blocking set of pages depending on time of the day and time spend on the page. Keeps me off the timewasting pages like facebook.It simple does what it claims to do.Thanks
An excellent add-on that does exactly what I want and works perfectly. Each time I come upon an enticingly time wasting site, I play a bit, then add it to my list as "only after 10.30pm". At least I don't waste my days!
