What it does:  

Go Fucking Work is a website blocker that blocks websites that waste your time, so you’ll be more productive at work.

Why you need this:

If you have problems controlling yourself from visiting non-work related websites every day at work, this might help. Just install the chrome extension and add those non-work related sites to block them.

The idea behind it.

The developer was feeling unproductive, so instead of working, he made this website blocker to shout expletives at him. There are tons of blockers out there but this one, shouts at you for wasting time. Cool eh?

What Bob likes

Bob thinks that it’s so effective for keeping him focused and killing impulse opening of distracting bookmarks.

What it doesn’t have or doesn’t do

Bob would like to have a whitelisting option for this app.

Bob Mini Review

At first, Bob found it annoying that he can only pause it and not stop it, but it actually makes sense.  It’s easy to use and quite effective. Unlike most website blocker apps that you need to start when you work, this takes the opposite approach. Here, you have to stop it if you don’t want to work. It’s recommended to those people who use their computer as a working station most of the time.

One thing that would make Go Fucking Work more useful is for the timer to actually kick you out of the site you’re on once the time is up. As of this writing, if I open a blocked site, I can continue browsing it until I close the tab, regardless of the time I set.

The pause function is useful too – just need discipline when using it. And the fact that “Go Fucking Work” is “NSFW” Not Safe for Work, you’ll get laughs from colleagues and will keep you from clicking on distracting sites while on client sites.

Should  you try it?

Yup, it’s funny yet brilliant. It’s is really good and helpful for those hours you’re supposed to study  or work and don’t want to be distracted.
