Beautifully interrupts mindless browsing, and gets you back to your life.
Entirely in your control.
You specify which sites you'd like to be mindful about your time on, and provide a list of things you'd generally rather do instead.
Mindful Browsing doesn't block you from visiting sites - it simply asks if you'd like to visit, and if so, reminds you 10 minutes later.
Mindful Browsing features stunning photographs from some of the world's best landscape photographers. If you're a photographer and are interested in having your work featured, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Free. Open. Safe.
Mindful Browsing was built by me, Steven Skoczen, to help with my own mindless browsing. Friends liked it, so I made it available for free on the chrome store.
Mindful Browsing doesn't track any of your activity, and the code is open-source so that you (or a geeky friend) can verify nothing sneaky is going on.
I hope you Mindful Browsing makes your life a bit better. If you have ideas, I'd love to hear from you.
Note: If you're looking for a way to block sites entirely, there are a host of other extensions out there. Do a search for stay focused, or block site, or study blocker. A lot of people have built ways to completely block sites for a period of time. Mindful Browsing isn't one of them - we believe that it's better to learn to be mindful about browsing than relying on a computer to enforce it. Think of it this way: if you hurt your leg, in the long run, would you rather do rehab and build your muscles, or use crutches for the rest of your life? :)
