Overview

Beautifully interrupts mindless browsing, and gets you back to your life.

Entirely in your control. You specify which sites you'd like to be mindful about your time on, and provide a list of things you'd generally rather do instead. Mindful Browsing doesn't block you from visiting sites - it simply asks if you'd like to visit, and if so, reminds you 10 minutes later. Beautiful. Mindful Browsing features stunning photographs from some of the world's best landscape photographers. If you're a photographer and are interested in having your work featured, email steven@mindfulbrowsing.org. Free. Open. Safe. Mindful Browsing was built by me, Steven Skoczen, to help with my own mindless browsing. Friends liked it, so I made it available for free on the chrome store. Mindful Browsing doesn't track any of your activity, and the code is open-source so that you (or a geeky friend) can verify nothing sneaky is going on. I hope you Mindful Browsing makes your life a bit better. If you have ideas, I'd love to hear from you. Note: If you're looking for a way to block sites entirely, there are a host of other extensions out there. Do a search for stay focused, or block site, or study blocker. A lot of people have built ways to completely block sites for a period of time. Mindful Browsing isn't one of them - we believe that it's better to learn to be mindful about browsing than relying on a computer to enforce it. Think of it this way: if you hurt your leg, in the long run, would you rather do rehab and build your muscles, or use crutches for the rest of your life? :) ---------------------------------------------------- Version 1.2.6 - Updates to Chrome Extension V3 permissions. This means the extension no longer needs the tabs or webNavigation permissions. Hooray for fewer permissions! Version 1.2.4 - Adds new images. Version 1.2.2: - Updates all images to SSL, so no warning appears on secured sites. Version 1.2.1: - Fixed a bug that was causing images not to load. Version 1.2: - Lots of new images, now changing daily - Hides the confirmation for small popups (like Facebook and Twitter's "Authorize this app" screens.) - Saves the daily image locally, for much faster and prettier responses. - A few odds and ends, like better fonts support, some tweaked spacing, and other beauties. Version 1.1: - Fixes a couple bugs, including close button and empty lists. - Makes edit popup easier to read. - Even better credit of the incredible photographers we feature. Version 1.0: - Initial release.

The idea is great... the execution... not so much. I cannot make it work at all for some reason. When I add the pages and the things I'd rather do, these keep getting deleted, and it doesn't work at all. Hope it gets fixed as this extension seemed perfect for my use case. I'm using brave browser with default settings for privacy.
