Recently released, DistractOff is a Google Chrome extension designed to assist workers in their efforts to be more productive while working online. DistractOff is unique from some other productivity-themed extensions in that it allows users to create a calendar to schedule times throughout the week to check websites that may be a distraction while users work or study. Thus, one can dedicate 30 minutes each morning to checking their favorite news site or a planned time on Wednesday evening to catch up on social media. Users can easily add websites to their restricted list by selecting the Chrome extension icon while browsing. Those interested in tracking their internet productivity (or lack thereof), stay tuned: DistractOff creator Dmytro Kalchenko says that he is working on adding a feature that allows users to track time spent on distracting websites throughout the week.
