Do you ever get distracted? IM? Facebook? Twitter? Reddit? Hacker News? These services are great, but sometimes it's hard to get work done when they're around. The interruptions start small but can have a devastating effect on productivity. Wouldn't it be great if you could turn them all off with 1-click? Focus is a tiny app that sits in your menu bar. It allows you to quickly and easily block out any website or service you want.

Couldn't get the hang of it. Couldn't figure out how to set it up on a schedule. And it caused my browsers to behave erratically. When I'd try to visit a black-listed site, I'd get literally dozens of Focus tabs with the little quotes on them, instead of just turning the ONE tab I'd tried to use for Reddit into a Focus message. It might work for others, and might work better on a newer OS (I'm on El Capitan), but it was more confounding than helpful for me.

After launching this app, a Rainbow Wheel always appears, and a High CPU Usage was detected. The Awful App!

No native support for Firefox only with plugin. No way to add web-site to black list after settings is blocked.
