Blocks access to certain distracting websites.
Blocker is a very simple extension that blocks access to certain pre-defined websites and allows you to finally get some work done. Once you've made a list of sites to block, just click the lock icon in the toolbar and get to work. To unlock, you have to enter a randomly generated 15 character case-sensitive alpha-numeric key.
1.2 - 1/17/2012
Added option to hide the "Click to disable" link on the blocked page.
1.1 - 7/31/2011
- Removed lowercase L and uppercase i from the code to make it easier to figure out. Uppercase L and lowercase i are still there because those shouldn't cause any issues. Also tweaked the font settings to make it even easier to distinguish between them.
1.0 - 7/6/2011
- Lock icon in URL bar does now show when Blocker is enabled (blocking sites) As a result, Blocker can only be disabled by visiting a blocked website or from the options.
- You can no longer copy/paste the code into the textbox to disable it. (I made it more difficult to do so, at least)
0.6 - 4/15/2011
- Key length is now a text box, you can just type in the length of the unlock key you want to use.
- Fixed bug where an empty blacklist blocks every website.
0.5 - 2/13/2011
- Added option to adjust the length of the code required to disable blocker. You can select between 15 and 100 characters.
0.4 - 2/10/2011
- Reverted blacklist back to simple regex. This allows for more flexibility and should fix the issue where websites not in the blocklist are being blocked.
- You can now customize the message displayed on the blocked page.
0.3 - 12/30/2010
- Fixed bug where empty line in blacklist would cause all sites to be blocked.
- Adding "sachleen.com" to the blacklist will only block content on sachleen.com. blog.sachleen.com will not be blocked. If you would like to block all subdomains as well, the entry in the blacklist should be "*sachleen.com" (note the asterisk)
0.2 - 12/7/2010
- Fixed bug where domains not specified in the blacklist would be blocked. This was a result of checking if the url to block existed anywhere in the current page's URL. For example, if you wanted to block Twitter and had "twitter.com" in the blacklist, any website that had "twitter.com" anywhere in the URL (like http://sachleen.com/#Some_twitter.com_Link) would be blocked. This can easily be fixed by specifying a "^" in front of each URL in the blacklist. This update does that for you.
