Overview

Pause distracting websites before they open. Be mindful and intentional with your browsing using this simple extension.

Pause breaks the cycle of distraction and mindless browsing and helps you be more focused, productive, and intentional with your technology use. When you open a distracting website, Pause creates a gentle interruption by displaying a calming green screen. After pausing for five seconds (adjustable), you can choose to continue to the site, remain on the green screen with the site temporarily blocked, or close the tab. The interruption created by Pause gently nudges you to make informed, intentional decisions about how you are spending your time. - Pause comes pre-seeded with a list of 50 top distracting websites, which you can add to or edit as needed. - You can also adjust the length of the Pause time (5 seconds is the default.) Keep Pause enabled in your browser. It’s a simple and powerful tool to help you control distraction and create more mindful browsing habits that will help you stay focused. Pause is a product of Freedom Labs, where we develop new ways to meaningfully interact with technology. Like our other extensions, Pause is highly privacy-conscious. None of your data is sent anywhere (the cloud, our servers, etc.) It remains secure on your own device. Learn more about Freedom here: https://freedom.to

It's decent but really needs a darkmode for evening browsing. Can't look at it after sunset.
