Block or tag websites, URLs and domains!
Improve productivity by easily blocking or tagging any interesting, distracting or harmful websites. How many times you came back on an useless page and wasted time on it? Or went back on a page and read informations that you had already read before and didn't want read again? With this extension you can set different labels on all the pages you want, and even block them! It is like an advanced bookmark/block websites manager. You can set labels on each page and domain, as : - USELESS (light red flag + top label on the page) - USEFULL (green flag) - IMPORTANT (blue flag) Or simply block the page! You can block a domain and unblock some specific pages of the same domain. You also can set a note (short message) on each page, by example why you tagged this page or why you blocked it. The extension also tells you how many times you visited the current page. I made this extension when I was making a lot of researches on many websites and I was not sure if I already saw some pages (call the number, send a message, or whatever). With URLs Manager, you'll not waste time anymore! If you want me to add some features, contact me :)

Currently. it's only visible by the small colored square on the icon of the extension, which is hard to see. Maybe that banner should then vanish automatically after two seconds. Just to have a signal that this page was already visited. Make that a user-selectable option and it's perfect :) (But even without that feature, the extension is great!). Also, it would be great to have an option that adds the "/*" wildcard (for sub-URL recognition) automatically if a page is tagged. Or at least provide an edit option for the existing list fo URLs so that the "/*" can easily be added manually.

Hi, thanks for this great extension! I'd like to adapt it to my needs, if possible. What would I need to do to: - edit the URL list (where is it stored?) - sync the URL list with another computer (symlink the list file into my local cloud directory on both sides would do the trick?) - suppress the comment dialog, after tagging - I don't need it and it would save one click per page - tag not only one page of a site, but the entire domain - show that banner on top of a page not only when it's tagged useless, but also if it's tagged useful or important For the latter changes I'd probably have to change the code of the extention. Is this possible for me? I have some programming experience, but I don't know where to find the code and if the code is even accessible to me or if it's a compiled binary. Thank you very much! The Paypal donation link doesn't work. It says that "donations are not supported in the country of this organization". Can I support you in another way? Thanks! Daniel
