Current roadmap: - Add functionality to block specified URL:s during chosen times. (November) - Add functionality to insert 1-5 todo's for the day, on the "error page" of the block url, to be reminded of your progress/tasks when you try to stray away. (December) Do you have any feature suggestion? Please don't hesitate to share them here!

@aabergkvist thnx, for real! My chrome goes crazy with 100+tabs on Mac. – add limits per window (option) – disable for X hours (don't want to disable ext, to lazy to turn on from browser settings again) For 2h or 6 for example. – custom N for limits

@mikekosulin Thank you so much for this! - Ah, I'm guessing you're using like one window per project/gig or similar? - Cool, didn't think about this! - Cool, I had some technical issues with this but since it's requested, it's back in. Updated roadmap: November - Add functionality to block specified URL:s during chosen times. - Disable for X hours (30min <> 12h?) December - Custom N for limits - Add limits per window - Add functionality to insert 1-5 todo's for the day, on the "error page" of the block url, to be reminded of your progress/tasks when you try to stray away. (December) I'll dedicate a page on my site to display the roadmap publicly as soon as I can find the time, for now this will have to do keep you up to date :)

Feed eradicator is an awesome productivity hack! Also love how I can set the max number of tabs I want open. Nice work.

@abadesi Thank you for your feedback! Really great to hear that you share the same view!

@abadesi What is your thought on making feed eradicator selectable? So that you can eradicate one of the two in some cases?

@aabergkvist I think it would be helpful e.g. I posted something in a Facebook group I run, saw a notification about a reply, but couldn't view it because of MinimalHero. So I had to open my phone. Ideally if there was a way to pause it, like you can with AdBlocker, that would be great. I'm already getting more disciplined with the tabs I keep open but the dialog box was annoying at first (in a good way!)

@abadesi - Thank you, didn't think about groups and such (which more often actually have stuff you do want/need to see) I'll be moving up "Disable for X amount of time" then, the feature suggested by @mikekosulin to top of the list to counter this! Let me come back with an ETA (<1 week)

@mikekosulin @aabergkvist Sounds great! thanks :) it's definitely helped my productivity and tab discipline, shared it with some friends to help them, too 🙌🏾

Open Q to founders/managers: Being able to block url's during certain hours, from a centralized UI, for all employees, is it a feature that you would implement in the organisation? Or does it feel like to much of an intrusion of privacy or similar?
