-The launch limit option is great for things like email, so it just limits the number of times you open it. The issue, in my opinion, is that you always have a set time on that website. Sometimes I need to check my mail real quick, and sometimes I need 30 minutes to write a complicated mail. So I need to set the allowed time pretty high, which then allows for compulsively checking that site during those 30 minutes. Could it be an option to allow us to remove that timer? Like, open it as long as you like (or maybe even on a timer), but as soon as you close it, the allowed session is over?

-Maybe give one "free linking pass"? This sounds very vague, and I don't know whether it's possible to implement, but I would really like to have this feature.
Imagine you have blocked a site, like Youtube or Linkedin, and then you see a link to a Youtube video or Linkedin article that seems really worthwhile to watch/read. But you can't access it, so you're out of luck. It would be nice if you were able to give yourself a free pass to that one video or article. So that when you're on an allowed site, and you click a link which links to a blocked site, it allows that. But to prevent going down the rabbit hole once again, you can't go any further than that. So when you click a link to yet another video, that will be blocked. I hope you understand what I mean.
Hi Jeroen! Sorry for replying late. You have a really interesting suggestion you have there, let's wait and see if other users will find it useful for their needs as well. Smile
Hi Jeroen,

I think your launch limit suggestion is what I was talking about in this thread and I plan to do:

The linking pass suggestion would be kind of hard to implement, I think.

Hi, in case anyone missed it. This feature was implemented! Smile
