We have talked about parental controls in Windows and web filter in Windows 7 that let you restrict access to inappropriate content on the web.
However, if you are on a Windows version which doesn’t have parental controls, and using Chrome as the default browser then you could use an extension called BlockIt to block certain websites.
Here’s how to do it.
( UPDATE: It appears that the extension is no longer available in the Chrome extensions gallery. You could try the download from Softpedia and see if it works. We also suggest you to take a look at our posts on privacy and security for more such tools. )
Install the add-on. After installing you won’t find any button or option in the extension bar. You have to type chrome://extensions/ in the address bar (check the screenshot given below). It will display all the extensions installed. Go to BlockIt extension and click on “Options” button given next to it.
