What is StayFocusd?

StayFocusd is a productivity extension for Google Chrome that helps you stay focused on work by restricting the amount of time you can spend on time-wasting websites. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day.

Nothing is without its issues and StayFocusd is the same.

Pros:

  1. 100% FREE
  2. It works perfectly (You have the tendency to disable it? You can block chrome://extensions as well)
  3. Easy to use
  4. Is not forgiving (You are not able to change ANY IMPORTANT SETTINGS if you use up your time limit)
  5. NO ADS (except that one ad about Freedom on the redirect page which doesn't bother me at all because its literally advising another great alternative and even gives a discount code)

Cons:

  1. It is only Chrome-based (I'm fine with this since I only use Chrome anyway)
  2. You can't really customize its appearance (Of course, I want to be able to change whatever it redirects me to. The only thing about its appearance that you can change is the redirect message)
  3. That one Freedom ad (This is just a joke. When I first read the dev's disclaimer I chuckled a bit)

I would give this 9/10 for Chrome-only users

you can just change the system time and it will let you through; you can delete the root extension and voila, it is done; or of course, you can use another browser (Edge is pretty much un-disable-able in Windows 10) to get online.

it does the trick if you already have self-control, but if you have a more serious problem internet filters/router configuration/or an installed program like ColdTurkey (which still is easily disabled if you have some tech savvy) is a better idea. if you can give up Chrome, LeechBlock for Firefox is a MUCH better program with better configuration (although, as with any browser extension like this, you can get around it if you delete the root file in the FF file).

StayFocusd only works with the Google Chrome web browser. Sometimes I use a different web browser for troubleshooting. Or I might use a different web browser to intentionally bypass StayFocusd. I would prefer an app that did not require the discipline not to do this.

Because StayFocusd works as a browser extension, it does not block standalone games and apps.

Stay focused is a good piece of code that had helped me a lot. Still it lack of some features that could make me very happy. But oh well, we can't have it all right?

Well on Mac there is SelfControl icon SelfControl which I found was everything I needed - it's pretty much impossible to get around the blocking.. I kind of find it lacking that it's only tied to your one browser and that you can stop the blocking mode before time is up :)
