Nanny for Google Chrome

Chrome Nanny allows you to be more productive and less distracted by setting time limits for use of particular sites. You can select a group of websites or a single site that you don’t want to use during the work hours and block them for any time period. Say Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter from 9 am to 4 pm. It is similar to LeechBlock, which performs the same function for Firefox.
