Confirm before you visit certain websites
Are you sure? ============= Are you sure? is a simple extension to help you stay productive on the internet. Distracting sites can be fun, but it's too easy to just visit them without thinking. You can be in the middle of some important work and, before you know it, your fingers have betrayed you and you're looking at cat gifs again. This extension just pops up a simple dialog box asking "Are you sure?" when you visit a distracting site. It doesn't try to stop you, just helps you be aware of what you're doing so you can make a fully informed decision. It will ask at most once every 5 minutes by default. The site list is configurable, so you can add whichever sites are most distracting to you. The extension uses Chrome's event filtering API, so it should use no extra memory or CPU except when you're loading one of the sites on the list. The source is available at https://github.com/sgentle/areyousure - feel free to post issues or suggestions there. Changes in 3.0 -------------- * Background opacity is now configurable * Keyboard support/accessibility * Prevent page CSS from interfering with the button
- (2020-12-11) Idan Koren-Israeli: Great idea and UX, but unfortunately it is not consistent at all.
- (2020-09-06) Xuân Thọ Thái: Absolutely what i need the most right now
- (2020-07-15) Benoit Vermont: Perfect. Nobody is ever really sure they want to go on Facebook.
- (2019-11-11) Chi Yu Yang: Exactly what I am looking for! Perfect! I combine it with Stayfocusd.
- (2018-11-05) Charlie S: I use this to warn me when Im on PROD vs DEV, works great.
- (2018-11-01) Peta Hillier: Amazing! Exactly what I was looking for to bring my attention to the fact that I'm heading to a distracting site. Perfect for cramming for exams! My only suggestion: An option to list every site by default or to show the warning any time you navigate away from a specific page.
- (2018-08-29) Thierry Lavallée: 1-Missing is a schedule. Where as I would like to set WHEN I should be notified or not. example M-F 8-17 2-It does not ALWAYS work.
- (2018-08-13) j B: Yup, this is exactly what I was looking for.
- (2018-06-19) Kotov Dmitriy: It's very good app
- (2018-05-17) Zachary Conner: It only works about half the time, which completely defeats the purpose.
- (2018-03-02) Aaron Matthies: Unfortunately it doesn't work consistently so it doesn't do it's job. Over the last two days the 'are you sure' message has appeared less than 10% of times when visiting listed sites.
- (2018-02-25) jones cutemba: THX, I will try it :)
- (2018-02-05) Johannes Straßner: Simple and exactly what I needed :)
- (2017-09-14) Tonci Zonjic: edit: doesn't work when opening website for the first time; would be great to have the enable/disable switch, and the option to fully black out the website under the button.
- (2017-06-30) Problem: It doesn't work when I start chrome I need to reload page before it works. "Perfect! Sometimes you just wanna be reminded so you can work on your ability to stop yourself."
- (2017-05-14) Peregrine Church: I googled "chrome extension are you sure" hoping that someone had thought of this plugin. Sure enough, here it is. Perfect for helping me think twice about getting distracted. Thank you, developer!
- (2016-11-29) Caetano Sauer: Yes! This is just what I was looking for. All I need to stay productive is be reminded that I am visiting a distracting website -- I don't need some complicated extension blocking me. As a suggestion, it would be nice to disable it in non-working hours such as the weekend and work-day evenings.
- (2016-03-30) Ali Rahman: It's very helpful, but there should be a way to reset the 5 min timer.
