Description from store HabitLab is an open-source research project from Stanford on helping users reduce their time online. It includes various tools like news feed blockers, comment hiders, and more. HabitLab will try out different tools and figure out what is most effective for you. Data on effectiveness will be recorded for research purposes. HOW IT WORKS Tell HabitLab which sites you want to spend less time on. We support most popular sites like Facebook, Youtube, Reddit, Buzzfeed, Netflix, etc - you can also add any site you want. Each time you visit those sites, we will intelligently choose an intervention (which use techniques such as hiding your news feed, hiding comments, pausing videos) to help you reduce your time on the site. If you don’t like an intervention, you can choose to disable it. HabitLab learns which interventions work best for you, and uses this to more effectively help you reduce your time online. ABOUT HabitLab is an open-source project developed by the Stanford HCI Group. You can find source code at https://github.com/habitlab/habitlab PERMISSIONS Chrome will ask you for the following permissions when you install. Here’s how we use them: * “Read and Write Data on All Websites”: We need this permission to change the appearance of pages deploy interventions on the sites you choose to reduce your time spent on. * “Show Notifications”: We use notifications to show you a daily progress summary on how you have been achieving your goals. * “Browsing History”: We use your browsing history to determine how much time you’ve spent on sites in the past, so we can measure how much time you’ve been saving. PRIVACY POLICY HabitLab sends us anonymized data about the effects of interventions on your browsing. You can opt-out of sharing data when you set up HabitLab, or later. See https://github.com/habitlab/habitlab/wiki/Privacy for our privacy policy.

  • (2019-03-29) Jean-François Racine: Had to uninstall it. Was draining my battery.
  • (2019-02-06) Lohengrin Percival: Does not work.
  • (2019-01-29) Benjamin Winig: This is the best productivity extension I have seen so far. It allows you to select "nudges" to control time spent on specific sites. Instead of blocking a site entirely, these nudges allow you to control your own usage through reminders, timers, and extra confirmation before playing a video on certain sites. Everyone who wastes more time than they would like to online needs to try this.
  • (2019-01-19) Ref C: This is honestly amazing! Perfect for better productivity. This needs to get more popular to help avoid distractions.
  • (2018-12-05) Shivang P Swain: This is an amazing tool. IDK, how it is still not wildly popular.
  • (2018-10-22) Jko Ggl: Excellent extension
  • (2018-08-12) Jonathan Smith: Very good extension for increasing awareness of my browsing habits
  • (2018-08-01) GokuFTW Playz: Great! Except not all nudges are activated at once and it's a little confusing to use. But lose the functionality and concept.
  • (2018-03-21) Easy to stay and get organized. Stop wasting time on stupidity, with any site. Also like that it displays how much time I've wasted on any site. Great for parents too! Can't recommend it enough!
  • (2018-01-16) Aleksandar Pavic: I really love funny gifs when I close tabs. Highly recommended!

    Your extension makes Chrome 76.0.3809.132 (64 bit) close after ~4 minutes running.
  • (2019-03-01, v:1.0.264) The idea is super, stability is weak
    constantly forgets the set parameters, works very unstable. The idea is great, but the stability is so-so
  • (2018-05-20, v:1.0.218) Michael Weiner: Version for Firefox?
