New York Times recommended articles, YouTube suggested videos, Amazon “only 3 items left” alerts — these “sticky” features are, in a way, even worse than ads. They’re not just visually distracting but designed to keep you online as long as possible.
That’s why I made a “filter list” that blocks distractions like these on over 200 sites.
I know it helps me, because if I accidentally turn it off, I start spending more time on these sites. Give it a try and tell me what you think.
