A new version of Chrome Nanny (0.98) is released today. The following are the highlights :
1. Chrome Nanny got the first external patch 🙂 The patch was from Hannes Hofmann who added a leechblockish page to Chrome Nanny. I liked it so much that I made it the default for new installations. Thanks Hannes !
2. There is now an option to hide the blocked sites. This was one of the popular requests and it is finally done. A new field “Show blocked URLs in Popup” is added which when set to no will not show the blocked URLs when Chrome Nanny icon is clicked.
3. Chrome Nanny now allows redirect to about:* pages. So this means you can set redirect to about:blank and other pages.
4. Other minor UI tweaks : changing display of hours in popup, fixed jquery UI arrow issue in the calendar at statistics tab.
