I’ve been working hard on an update to my Chrome extension, Nudge - see below for what it does now. What do you think?
1. Switches off addictive sites by default
You have to drag that slider to switch them back on. Beautiful background (changes every day) reminds you that there’s an alternative to that next dreary Facebook / Twitter / Buzzfeed browsing session.
2. Shows you visually when you are spending a long time on an addictive site
Each ring represents 5 minutes of time spent. You can hide this easily in a single click.
3. Hides parts of the internet that can suck you in
You can show them whenever you need them, simply by hovering and clicking. But they aren’t there to distract you by default.
4. Not a new feature, but deletes your Facebook News Feed forever, across all platforms
Which could save you literally hundreds of hours a year.
