Description from extension meta

Adds a delay page between you and the target of the links you click on.

Image from store Delayed Browsing
Description from store Name changed from "Link quarantine" to Delayed Browsing. This extension adds a "delay page" between you and the links you click on. The idea is to make it harder to fall down rabbit holes. Visiting any link you click on is delayed by 3 minutes. The window containing the delayed page must be the your active window. If you use tabs, the delayed tab has to be the front-most tab as well. This is to remove the possibility to open a bunch of tabs or windows and have all of their delays running in parallell. The extension is at the moment not compatible with Google search result pages, i.e. links from Google search results are not delayed. The extension does in itself not save any information about which pages you visit. No options can be set, but this will perhaps be possible in a future version. # CHANGELOG 0.3.1 Fixed missed translation 0.3.0 Renamed extension to Delayed Browsing. Internationalized version + do not activate on google.com as Google does some JavaScript-stuff I have not had the time to figure out how to make the extension compatible with. 0.2.1 Fixed spelling error.

  • (2019-06-14, v:0.3.1) Mich ael: How do you activate it?
    I installed the extension but I don't understand how to make it delay a website.
  • (2018-12-26, v:0.3.1) David Rowland: Add to Options (which is greyed out)
    Please fix options, and allow to change Delay from 2minutes to a customised timer, 15 seconds seems to be most optimal, aswell as doing this for every tab and link, rather than randomzied, or atleast allow us to change the frequency of how often we are delayed.
  • (2018-10-07, v:0.3.1) Виктор Азаров: Timeout skip / delay change?
    Could you, please, add the option to skip the timeout, or manually change the delay time (so it would be like 10 seconds or so)? It would be the best extension for me if you could do so.
  • (2018-02-02, v:0.3.1) Mārtiņš Mālmanis: Options isn't working
    Options isn't working - It's just grey - non active Why?
