Stops you from continuing to scroll forever
The infinite scroll. It's dangerously easy to scroll mindlessly for hours, especially when it comes to social media.
So what if we playfully visualized infinite scrolling as a deep sea dive, to help people experience their scrolling habit more tangibly?
Anchor is a simple Chromium/Firefox extension which plays on this feeling of sinking. The further down you scroll, the deeper you dive — and you can watch as your screen slowly turns a dark blue, a little fish swims across your screen, and finally, you hit a (literal) rock bottom.
I'm expanding the original experiment (https://experiments.withgoogle.com/anchor) by Brendan Browne-Adams, Lahari Goswami, Miki Chiu, Tayo Kopfer, and Twomuch Studio to add additional functionality. Part of the beauty of the original extension is its simplicity, and I will try to maintain it as much as I can.
This program is open-source, so if you have any changes you would like implemented, help us out at https://github.com/2br-2b/Anchor ! Even if you have no clue how to program, if you have a feature you would like added, go to the "Issues" tab and create a new issue for the feature you want added
Note: To get the extension to activate for the first time, you may need to remove and add the page to the scrolling list once. It should work after this.
