Internet Addicts: Save Yourselves With These Firefox Extensions

Hello my name is Chris and I am addicted to the Internet.

“Hi Chris.”

Well if you are like me, you can install any one of these great Firefox extensions to help save yourself.

Before we begin however, make sure you have Firefox and not that other Internet browser from Microsoft. If you don’t, get it here. You can install Firefox 2 or the new version 3 (though not officially released yet). These extensions work with either version.

Option 1: LeechBlock by James Anderson
“LeechBlock is a simple productivity tool designed to block those time-wasting sites that can suck the life out of your working day. All you need to do is specify which sites to block and when to block them.
Download LeechBlock here.

Option 2: TimeTracker by Juan Casares
TimeTracker keeps track of how much time you spend on Firefox. It will only count time that you are browsing the Internet so if you just have your browser open, you do not need to worry. Also, you can edit a safe list of sites that you use for work so that TimeTracker does not count them.
Download TimeTracker here.

Option 3: pageaddict by unknown (seriously, I don’t know)
pageaddict creates graphs of your browsing habits for those of you that are more visually inclined. You can see how much time you spent on each website for each day.
Download pageaddict here.

This is what II personally use pageaddict, but any of the above solution will work wonders for you. Now get back to work you slacker!
