Bangalore: The internet, in almost all the possible ways can sometimes be distracting. You are determined to do some work and switch on the monitor, suddenly a bunch of pop ups, including chat windows appear on the screen, which is more than enough to grab your attention and keep you engaged for hours.



This article is for such people, who want to get their work done without distraction and for those who want to bring down the time wasted in "surfing" the net. Many filters listed here are exceptionally good that, it can be timed to block the distracting sites say for 2 hours or just 20 minutes! After the particular time, they give access to your random sites including Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit, where you spend time without even knowing. 



So here are seven online tools to limit your chances of wasting time online and in the worst case, to help you from getting fired!



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.
