If I am being completely honest, this extension has been a mental health helper. This is something I have wanted to have for ages. News blocking I really needed, something I think is amazing. It is always improving, getting better and better. This could be good for anyone who wants to focus on their tasks or even block news at certain times of the day, even when they want to look for information but avoid accidentally clicking on news sites. Thank you for this extension.

I am glad you liked it Curtis. News addiction is really bad for mental health. I tried different ways to get rid of it. Reducing addiction by self control is not that easy. This extension attempts to create some friction to access news and friction works in most cases to stop most addictions (ex. keeping phone in different room while sleeping). Hope it improves mental health of more and more people.

Love this extension! As someone who doesn't watch the news anymore (I mostly just look up the weather) due to all the negativity and how much fear/stress/panic/anxiety it can cause in someone, this extension is a blessing!

I need an extension to block specific news sites, not all of them. I can't imagine why anyone would need this extension. It has zero options.
