With the bounty of distractions that are just a few keystrokes and clicks away on the internet, staying productive and focused while online can be a challenge, but the Rooster extension helps kick people into gear when it's time to hunker down and take action. The Google Chrome extension automatically monitors website usage, and it sends push notifications if users spend their allotment of time on a given site.

Most people are aware of the sites where they ending up wasting the most time, be it Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, or elsewhere. The problem is that the siren song of those sites can be too hard to resist, and it's easy to lose track of time once you're on them. The Rooster extension can be programmed to allow for some time on those sites, but it will notify users once they've reached their limit. This makes it a solid alternative to cold turkey site blockers.
