Summary

Imagine being able to focus on your computer again. How much more could you get done? How much happier would you be?

Use the science of Internet addiction to your advantage. By slowing down and removing color from distracting websites, you'll unconsciously become less interested in them - with no extra effort!

Features:

  • set your own list of distracting websites, or apply it to the whole Internet
  • customize the loading delay timer, and the loading message
  • change how much greyscale is applied (0-100%)

Open source and no analytics or tracking! View the source code on GitHub: https://github.com/toddmedema/anti-addiction-chrome

I like the way it tackles distractions differently than a lot of other tools. The fact that it doesn't block websites outright but gives them a sort of loading time is pretty neat since that way I don't just automatically revert to the reflex of just disabling the tool. Also, greyscale is pretty great too. Overall a great tool that can work great alongside other strategies.
