Don't block the internet, use it with Intent.
It's becoming clear: the Internet is making us unhappy.* Seemingly innocent distractions turn into large, unintended time drains. We face regret in how we spend our time on the web. And internet companies are only making this worse.†
It is in this spirit that we present Intent, an extension that helps you become more aware of how you spend your time online.
We don't try to block the internet and we don't guilt you for using sites you enjoy. Instead, we help you understand how you use the internet, how much happiness your usage brings, and how your time trades off against other activities.
With Intent you'll build a habit of online awareness -- awareness of how you spend time online, of when you have the desire to spend time online, and of what drives that desire. Intent aims to empower you to take back control of your relationship with technology.
Don't block the internet; use it with Intent.
