A simple extension to keep you focused online

V2 updates! - Custom time interval for distraction free mode - Ability to turn off 'always on' mode - Improved UI -- Self Control -- A simple app to keep you focused online by blocking sites that you spend way too much time on. Note that the app works by blocking patterns within the full url. For example if you were to block the pattern "book" the sites and would both be blocked. Distraction free mode prevents you from removing block patterns from the app for a fixed amount of time. By default this is one hour, but it can be changed in settings. Note that you cannot set a time shorter than 20 min :p By default the extension is always running. To change this so that the extension only runs when distraction free mode is enabled, toggle 'Always on' in settings to Off.

Stops you from opening a website like you tell it too, but sometimes it take a while after "distraction free mode" expires for it to give you access again.
