This app is easy to use and useful at the same time.

A lot of us use our Macs not only for our daily lives, but also for our work. The problem is, with all of the internet at our fingertips, it can be hard to stay focused when the allure of social networking, like Facebook and Twitter, as well as other things you can do to slack off, are no more than just a click away.

There are a chrome plugin, it's called "Go Fucking Work". I use this extension to prevent me access distraction sites like Social Media, Email, and something else. This extension also can "disable a websites to being blocked". I use this to open StackOverflow, Google, CssTricks, Nosily, etc. Btw, thanks for your nice article!

There's a new Chrome extension in town, and unlike other programs that are meant to divert your attention to mindless scrolling and button-mashing, this one emphatically, and pretty crudely, wants you to get shit done.
Lifehacker
Chrome: If you need a little help getting off of Facebook or Reddit and getting things done, Go Fucking Work for Chrome has that in droves-and yes, that's its name. No nonsense, no frills, just sharp, pointed advice. Go Fucking Work turns every new tab page into a reminder that, well, you should really get back to work.
The Daily Dot
Stop me if this sounds familiar: You open a Google doc to write something for work when-ding!-"Laura liked your Facebook status." You click over to your Facebook tab, then click on the alert to read Laura's comment and admire your status once more. "Okay," you tell yourself, "back to work."

I use this every single day. I love seeing the reports of what sites I've been browsing and my productivity score. I like using after 9-5 workday as well just to see what I do with my free time.

Also, you can connect it to Gyroscope (also on this list), so that you have the Rescuetime data inside Gyroscope.
Edward Woodcock- Tech Co-Founder @ GetDinghy
I use this implicitly a lot. It's usefulness has multiplied since it became an integration for Gyroscope (which is another recommendation in this list).

I use this one. Does good enough job blocking access to apps and websites I don't want to spend time on when working. Also has a "hardcore mode" where you literally can't turn off work mode during certain times. It's awesome.
