As an owner, I am often distracted on the Internet.

Distraction is a pain.

I useself control, This is a nice app for Mac that can stop my distracting websites. Like Reddit and news sites. It is common for me to open a news website when I encounter an unsolvable problem or are doing meaningful work.

But sometimes I can't really block the entire website. For example, StackOverflow cannot be blocked. However, some of its UI does annoy me, such as network issues.

Sometimes those problems are really interesting for the lizard's brain. They are looking for the best way to distract you from what you should be doing.

I'm not sure, but some people will argue that this kind of garbage behavior is intentional. It changes every time it is rebuilt, so it is not possible to customize the page with this tool.

I sometimes can't completely block Twitter, and I want to block "Trends for you", "Who follows", "You may like", etc., so I can open Twitter without being attracted by Twitter. hashtag. But obviously I can't do this.
