Stop scrolling too far, and stay focused on what's important
Scroll Stop is a productivity extension designed to keep you focused on what's important. Choose all the sites you waste too much time on, and Scroll Stop will prevent you from browsing further than you tell it to on those sites. Simply tell Scroll Stop which websites to be active on, how far it should let you scroll on each, and whether you want Scroll Stop to close the distracting tab, clear it of all contents, or direct you to another website once you've hit your limit. Scroll Stop does not store any information outside your computer, and is 100% ad-free. We don't track you, record your data, or do anything else nefarious. Scroll Stop is a simple solution to a common problem, with none of the marketing or tracking code that makes competing applications slow and bloated. Spend less time scrolling, and more time working! Scroll Stop is a project of indigoBox Studios.

The updated design is great, and you can now select the number of screens to limit yourself to when scrolling - although when you revisit the settings page for the same site later, it shows the equivalent pixel value instead of the "screen count" you had set previously. I like the various options of what to do when you hit your limit: there's a nice range from slightly annoying (showing you a dialog that says you've been scrolling for too long) to stop-you-in-your-tracks (closing the tab completely). Very nice extension overall, definitely would suggest it for anyone who's trying to kill an addiction to social media sites or anything like that.

And I love that there are different options for what happens when you've reached your scroll limit. The one problem I had was the use of pixels to measure when to stop scrolling. For someone in tech or design this wouldn't be an issue, but as an average user, I honestly don't know how many pixels is too many pixels to scroll. I set it to the default 500 and got past 2-3 Facebook posts before it cut me off. I feel like offering other choices for how to measure, like time, or number of "full screen" web pages you pass would help. Otherwise I think this is a great extension and definitely makes me realize how often I spend time on websites I have no desire to really be on out of habit.

Perhaps an option to have a scroll counter on display, and I don't know if this one is possible but upon reaching the limit to disable scrolling for the given site.
