Overview

Soft block your websites: get a gentle reminder before being able to reach a website on your blacklist.

Increase your productivity by blocking access to a blacklist of websites while still allowing you to regain access when needed (during your break, for example), but only for a limited time. This first version is really basic and created for my own needs. Feel free to take a look at the source at https://github.com/BrechtVds/SoftBlock

Works well enough! Breaks when going to links with extended urls that start with the blocked address, though. It'll properly block and ask you to unblock reddit.com for example, but with just "reddit.com" in your block list, it'll give a "gpniknfkgmfphohfhbnacmcjmplbgfjk is blockedThis page has been blocked by Chrome ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT" Error and not prompt you to unlock. Still, better than most available options nowadays.

I wish it worked, because it is so simple and would suffice, but its broken in Chrome Version 39.0.2171.95 The block works, but the button to go to the website (after selecting a period of time) doesn't work, so you can't get to the website at all.
