Setup wait period for time-wasting sites.
WaitBlock allows you to setup wait period for time-wasting sites. Upon visiting a blocked website, you will be presented with a countdown you need to wait out. This turns the dopamine-induced sensation you get when opening Facebook, into boring and borderline frustrating experience. After a while, you will no longer be subconsciously opening it again. You also get a beautiful picture every day, which will remind you of the life out there.
- (2019-03-27) Lukas P: The best Dopamine Blocker Extension out there! I changed a tiny detail: Instead of showing a countdown, I just show the initial total wait time. Countdowns kinda make it exciting to wait and that's not the point.

A related doc I wrote about reducing distractions: https://docs.google.com/document/d/12YZbZKosgdhoaU5-qwQr2M2KiS6vFQnyBZcEXCfkB9o/edit?usp=sharing It btw took me forever for me to find this plugin – hopefully this will get more visibility at some point :)
- (2017-06-28) Simon Sotak: This is a true game-changer. Forget all self-help guides, WaitBlock has changed my life for the better and now I'm being productive and actually spending time with my family!
- (2017-03-27) Vivian Chang: Waitblock changed within the last day--now there's a delay before it starts working, and I have to actively click on the page for the timer to run down. May be a bug?
- (2016-12-21) Michal Šimonfy: Amazing!
- (2016-06-08) Franek Żak: Great, simple, just works. Nice photos, too.
- (2016-05-28) Mayank Jain: Very good!
- (2016-04-10) Lubos Kubon: nasty, it really makes you to reflect on your core values..
- (2020-04-22, v:1.5.1) Carson: Can disable without reflecting
Can you change the settings so that I can flag the "disable extension" page. I can disable the app or change the settings with no wait time.

Hi, I'm running chrome 59 on Ubuntu 16.04. The countdown does not start automatically. It does start if I enter dev tools. If I don't do anything, it just sits there indefinitely saying "[blank] seconds"
- (2017-07-01, v:1.5.0) Shai Shapira: Timer is starting
I'm expereincing a weird behaviour. The timer isn't starting when going to blacklisted domains (no numbers but the 'seconds to change your mind' and background show) and IF i click one of my extensions buttons in the top right of chrome the timer starts.
