I would like a website blocking extension for Google Chrome that lets me turn it off with some, but not much, friction without having to go to the extensions menu every time I toggle it.
My specific situation is that I already know to use blockers for sites where I am never productive, like Facebook. However, I frequently read StackExchange sites for fun, but also need to access them for my work. As a result, I can't block SE in most website blockers, but I still squander a lot of time on the sites.
What I would like is a blocker I could use specifically for the sites I use both for work and procrastination. It should have some functionality similar to:
- A button in the toolbar that turns it on and off.
- When I click the button to turn it off, I have to complete a slightly difficult task, like retyping a short block of text.
- When I click the button to turn it on, it does so immediately.
Then, I could use one blocker for most sites and this blocker for SE. This allows me to easily access SE when I need to, but makes it just difficult enough for me to access SE when I want to procrastinate that it will be easier to convince myself to get to work.
