I check my e-mails too much. And from time to time I find a webpage that I keep checking too much (a forum thread and the likes).

What tools can I use to restrict my access to these pages?

(I use Windows XP with Google Chrome.)

How about discipline and self control? – joeqwerty Jun 18 '10 at 21:09
Why not couple that with external help? – Tal Galili Jun 18 '10 at 21:41
what about this makes it not a duplicate of… or… ? – quack quixote Jun 18 '10 at 22:28
^Perhaps the user who asked this hadn't joined the site when those questions were asked. And he could have performed a search (e.g. ) and not found those questions. Just say it's a dupe; ask him to search more thoroughly; and save the attitude for your whipping boy or something. – Lèse majesté Jun 19 '10 at 1:06
Hello Quack. The first post wasn't relevant. The second was, I didn't find it with a search, but even after reading through it - I can't say it has a solution I want to have. Greg solution so far is better. Although that addon is still a bit immature. Lese, thanks for the support! – Tal Galili Jun 19 '10 at 5:21

There are extensions in Chrome for blocking websites to increase your productivity. You might also want to try the desktop or Chrome version of RescueTime. I haven't use the Chrome version, but the desktop version does have a "Get Focused" feature to help you stay on track.
