A quick and easy cure for Endless Scrolling Syndrome.

Image from store Delayed Gratification
Description from store Every time you tab into a time-eating website, Delayed Gratification gives you 15 seconds to make sure you actually wanted to do that. Because, let's face it, it's mostly just muscle memory at this point. Click on the hourglass icon in your browser to add "bad websites" and update your time settings. NOTE: Delayed Gratification is currently in beta. Please contact [email protected] with any bugs or suggestions.

  • (2022-11-03) Jasper Fadden: Thank you, this is a wonderful extension for websites that are essential but can also be time wasters (Discord and Google in my case). It doesn't block it entirely in case you have to use it for work, but it pushes you in the right direction if you are just wasting time.
  • (2022-10-26) hyper tasker: I love this extension really good for keeping your attention focused on your intention! Please see if you can increase the waiting time exponentially! (30sec to 3mins or 5mins) The developers on this did a great a job in the aspect of ease of use, thank you dev's!
  • (2022-10-21) Marco Coraggio: Very nice, I would have a few suggestions: - add option to let timer pass only if the blocked tab is focused. Otherwise one can do something else while waiting - add option to disable at specific times of specific week days
  • (2022-10-05) Maxime Delmas: Great app, light and simple. An improvement that could be made: deactivate web pages according to time slots. For example, do not block pages between noon and 2 p.m. or after 6 p.m. Anyway, nice job! Excellente application, légère et simple. Une amélioration qui pourrait être apportée : désactiver les pages web suivant des plages horaires. Par exemple, ne pas bloquer les pages entre midi et 14 heures ou après 18h. En tout cas, beau travail !
  • (2022-09-15) Benjamin Gillott: Perfect resistance to the attention economy.
  • (2022-06-23) Ismael Hernández Ordenes: Just incredible
  • (2022-05-03) João Dionísio: Worked like a charm in the beginning. Now, it doesn't block the site right away, only if I go to a new page and then return to the one I want to block, which defeats the purpose. I can open a blocked website and use it at will.
  • (2022-02-05) Chen VinC: Simple and powerful solution. Thanks!
  • (2022-01-18) Swetha Anandaraj: This is literally the best , no words to explain Trust me , I'm so lazy that I watch youtube all day And waiting for 30 seconds isn't my choice , This helped me overcome my youtube addiction And that iconic line , Loved it Why did you even install this extension ? BTW, Can you plz make the delay screen customizable Would be way much better Thank you Jensen Tung for recommending this extension
  • (2020-10-25) Andrew Stanger: Very good, but very basic. Specifically what I would like is the ability for this extension to kick in only at certain times- like when I'm meant to be working. But when it's the weekend I'd rather not have to wait to get my gratification!
  • (2020-09-20) im_gouda: Does exactly what it says and that's good enough for me!
  • (2019-10-07) George K: Excellent app.
  • (2019-01-07) Ethan Conner: Exactly what I needed, would love the option to turn on a counter.
  • (2018-09-16) Oskar Henriksson: This is exactly what I needed. Question: Is there anything similar that delays the opening of apps on android phones?
  • (2018-03-04) Gibb Son: Exceptional
  • (2018-02-02) Mārtiņš Mālmanis: Almost perfect! There could be in options a chance to put custom text on screen while your waiting! :)
  • (2018-01-12) Arthur Colombini Gusmão: The best extension on delayed gratification so far. The difference is that this one has a timer which lets you control how long it will take for the website to be blocked again.
  • (2017-10-28) J T: Great idea. Would be nice if you could add multiple URLs at once instead of adding one by one.
  • (2017-06-26) Shashvat Shukla: The idea is brilliant, and execution is tidy. Definitely can be worked on further to have more features but is great as-is.
  • (2017-06-20) Manoranjan Kumar: This is perfect.
  • (2017-04-18) Edith Ann: Love this - it's perfect for dedicated, but easily distracted people (like me). Gives you just enough time to question yourself, & then do the right thing. Thanks for a job well done!
  • (2017-01-10) Shaik Farooq: Amazing
  • (2017-01-05) Sean Trostel: perfect. Other site blockers are easy enough to disable and forget about. This one can be disabled, but the delay is short enough that it's easier to either wait or (even better) take the time to change your mind.
  • (2017-01-04) Ashish Gupta: This is what I needed - does the job simply and is effective! Now a few things that would be nice (but not necessary): - Quotes on the delay screen ? - Number of tries to go to these websites. Would be hilarious to see my own attempts to distract myself. And maybe it improves over time by using this extension ? - Some pre-recommended websites like reddit or facebook.
  • (2017-01-04) Adam Gay: Really liking this... just wish it wasn't always on. I'd love the ability to set a custom schedule for when to enable the blocking (e.g. M-F 8am-12pm & 1-5pm).
  • (2017-01-04) Rio The Ninja: Also found this on /r/getdisciplined. A few suggestions: - Make it so you can change the delay time for different websites. - Custom delay times. - Maybe make the delay screen customizable. I love the idea! I just wish I could change a few things :)
  • (2017-01-03) Rajarshi Nigam: every blocker can be circumvented, this is exactly the type of demotivation you really need because it gives you time to think about it and change your habits
  • (2017-01-03) Glen Knight: Works as advertised
  • (2017-01-03) Patryk Raba: SUper! :)
  • (2017-01-03) Brian Saturnino: Saw this on reddit.com/r/getdisciplined Great tool! I hope this gets really popular in the future. You deserve it. :)
  • (2017-01-03) Eric May: Love the concept, easy enough to keep myself from mindlessly wasting time
  • (2017-01-03) Alan Grainger: Fantastic idea! Really makes you think and puts you back on track.
  • (2017-01-03) Simon Scott: Excellent! Does what it says in the tin.
