Prod is a to-do list for Google Chrome. It blocks websites you waste time on and unblocks them once you've finished your to-do list.
That's the basic premise of Prod, but it has other ways of gently nudging you to be productive. Every aspect of Prod is designed to make productivity easy and time-wasting hard.
Prod doesn't show ads, collect personal data, or bug you for money.
Prod replaces your new-tab page with an intuitive and satisfying to-do list:
Prod rewards you for completing your to-do list by revealing a tranquil landscape — a new one each day.
Tell Prod which websites you waste time on and it will block them and redirect you back to your to-do list. Once you've completed your to-dos you'll be allowed back on those sites.
Any attempt to access one of your blocked sites will redirect you back to your to-do list where you will be met by a pair of disappointed eyes:
Now and then Prod will provide you with a tip to improve productivity and happiness.
These tips are well-researched and specific — never spammy or vague nonsense.
Prod will never show ads, collect personal data, or bug you for money.

To pay for Prod, all you have to do is engage with it, review it on the chrome store, and share it with anyone you think might find it useful. That's it.
Every aspect of Prod is designed to make you happier and more productive.
