I just published a new version of Chrome Nanny that implements a frequently requested feature – the ability to go into focus mode also called as lockdown.
If you have used LeechBlock, you must be familiar with lockdown. If not, this feature allows you to immediately block a set of blocksets for the next “n” minutes. This is useful if you do not want to muck with the existing blockset settings.
A new tab called ‘Lock Down’ is added. This contains two blocks. The ‘Configure Lockdown’ block allows you to setup a new lockdown. This lists all the blocksets in Chrome Nanny and you can select a subset of the blocksets to lock down. You also have a dropdown giving the time of the lockdown.
When a lockdown is active, then the details of that lockdown is displayed in the “LockDown Information” block. During that time all the urls in the selected blocksets will be blocked. You will not be able to edit or delete those blocksets either. Only one lockdown can be active at a time.
I will be updating the Chrome Nanny roadmap page soon with the latest set of features and priorities.
