Sometime it is difficult to concentrate on the task at hand – especially if you are almost always at work, with a day job and a startup on the side. At those times, I find it particularly difficult to resist the temptation to compulsively wander to some interesting websites, like Hacker News or some other online news source.
I already had a little Windows software installed to block a list of distracting websites for a given time when I need it, but I often code on Linux and that program doesn’t work there. That’s how I came across Concentrate for Chrome, a Chrome extension that does that same thing – but works equally well on Windows and Chrome.
If you’re like me, and sometimes being a news-aholic interferes with your being a workaholic, this extension is highly recommended!
