Ubuntu – How to block any site?


I have installed a ubuntu 14.04 in my company, and I want to block websites in my browser Firefox/Chorme, but how can I do this?


Best Answer

Mozilla Firefox

Using Firefox you can use Block Site add-on to block any websites (blacklist) or allow only certain websites (whitelist). Here’s a screenshot from its preferences (sorry for my small display):

Google Chrome

And in Chrome/Chromium it seems there is an extension from the same developers.


Some time ago I was using Opera for its bits and whistles. There’s a built-in functionality to block contents there, under Preferences > Advanced > Content > Blocked Content.

I personally prefer the way @sparkmood mentioned here. It’s browser-independent. Brilliant!
