Block "Around the Web" Links With the Freedom App

Life Hacks – Spoken Edition show

Summary: There’s a second use for Freedom, a simple app that lets you block distracting sites like Twitter for a few minutes, hours, or days. As the app’s blog points out, Freedom also works as a clickbait blocker that hides the gross and misleading “Around the Web” links at the bottom of news articles (aka the chumbox). This is useful if you don’t use an ad blocker, but the principle is the same: Freedom blocks all traffic from a specified domain.
