Google Chrome to Users: "Help Me Help You"
Transfusion Media recently introduced StayFocusd, a Google Chrome extension that limits time spent on black-hole websites like Facebook and Twitter.
StayFocusd allows you to create a “black list” of websites you typically pour empty hours into. From there you can set daily time limits for each site. Once you exceed the set limit, you get booted from the site, unable to access it for the rest of the day. Google Chrome calls the technology a “productivity extension.”
Guess we won’t be seeing you on Farmville anymore, huh? Bummer.
