Overview

A Chrome Extension that prevents mindless browsing

The name MIU, short for Mindful Internet Use, can be viewed as the antonym of the Psychological term Problematic Internet Use (PIU). Problematic Internet Use is described as ”an inability to control one's use of the Internet which leads to negative consequences in daily life”. Unlike many other extensions, MIU will not provide a quick fix by blocking websites. MIU will instead focus on the reason behind the problem, the user's tendency to browse the web mindlessly. By repeatedly encouraging a more intentional and mindful usage of the internet this extension will help the user to quit undesirable internet use. The goal of this extension is to give its user a tool to help them avoid mindless browsing and unintentional internet use. This will be done by encouraging the user to breathe and present quotes that remind the user what they value before allowing the user to access a listed website. Neither your quotes nor list of mindless websites will be sent anywhere, the data will remain secure on your own device. Source code: https://github.com/IvarssonAndreas/mindful-internet-use

I've been looking for this type of extension for a long time! I've just added it so I can't give proper feedback yet (I'll adjust my review after having some experinece) but I just want to express my gratitude to the developer for coming up with it. I've been using a similar tool for my phone called ScreenZen and it improved my experience with technology so much.

It's simply marvelous. I would like to ask you a big favor. I would love the app to block again after the "selectable access time after breathing" has passed. For example: if I select 2 minutes, the after those minutes has passed the app will block the website for exactly the time of breathing time settings and so forth. This is because the app doesn't do it unless i change between tabs and return to the one I want to block. What do you think? Thank you so much. If there is something I can do... Show more
