How to restrict specific web site access Sdoof 1/7/09 8:15 PM
While I like the browser i am going to uninstall it - the reason ? One can not restrict access to explicit and unproductive web sites. So unless you guys add this functionality so that end users like myself afflicted with ADD can control their environment - you would have missed an opportunity to make this world a better place - thanks for your undertsanding

I agree with Sdoof that on Google Chrome one cannot restrict specific websites.So I am also uninstalling it.

I agree. Its very easy for my child to open websites that I couldn't control with browser restrictions.

I will not uninstall, but would like to see this feature implemented. I find it very important.

Since there is such a tie-up between Chrome and Firefox, why can't we have a version of one of the Firefox add-ons, like ProCon Latte, which I found to be excellent in this regard - it has a master password feature to stop it being installed, and once you get your whitelist right (and de-restrict some of the terms, they're TOO tight for normal browsing, eg in newspapers), it's very effective.

In fact, having restricted access (ie removed all menu calls but not the pgm itself) to iexplore, the only way to get round a locked-down Firefox IS to install Chrome - so maybe Google should take note - the large constituency out there who need this functionality to protect their children will have to not just de-install Chrome, but blacklist its download page!

So get moving, please - Chrome is great otherwise!

I am worried that google is getting too big to acknowledge end-user concerns, but I will add my vote to request URL restrictions. I don't have a kids issue, but in IE, I block sites like ads.cnn.com, *.doubleclick.com, ad.marketingsector.com, and SpyBot added hundreds of know suck-ware sites.

I won't unisntall chrome, but IE8 will continue to be my default on WinTel and Safari on Mac until Chrome matures a little.

I agree with aatmi.d, you are unable to restrict explicit sites which can be easily accessed by children. However I really like all the functionalities of the browser. Still it is not child safe so I'm going to have to uninstall it. If you fix this problem Email me and let me know and I'll be back in a flash.

You can use Chrome and have websites blocked. But you don't block sites only from Chrome, but in the OS itself. That has an advantage that it will affect all browsers, and not only Chrome.

You can block sites using the "hosts" file. Check out my references for instructions how to edit them and where to find them.

This is a biggie for me, in fact the main reason I'm not using Chrome.
With IE I set my privacy to high which blocks most unwanted cookies such as tracking and advertising cookies.  If any gets through all I do is add them to my restricted list.  If, on the other hand, I can't use a site that I need properly, such as signing in, all I do is add it to my allowable sites.  This offers me control over what I want to block and let through.  Chrome lets either everything through or blocks everything with no way to add wanted and unwanted sites to the exceptions list.

I don't see using the hosts file as an option - it's far too complicated for something that should be simple and easy for everyone and it doesn't allow you to automatically block a lot of unwanted cookies that aren't yet added to your list.

A restricted sites feature is a must have for me! Google...Please do this or I will go back to my old browser.
Re: How to restrict specific web site access Scoody 2/10/10 12:01 PM
I wanted to use google chrome on all the pc's but without being able to restrict website it make a work force less productive. Its a must have. Bye Bye Google chrome, for now I hope.
Re: How to restrict specific web site access desertdance15 2/22/10 9:58 PM
I agree!! Please generate a chrome version of LeechBlock a Firefox add-on that allows you to block specific websites! This is the main reason I can not use google chrome up to this day!

Here are some extensions for Chrome that may be useful in this regard...

BlockIt — blocks pages/specicfic URLs
https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/dfjfhdfdeogiplgepcbfjcpiianmeoed?hl=en

tinyFilter — blocks pages/URLs and can also block pages based on content (i.e. phrases/words in the page)

Tinyfilter as conveyed by drfrogsplat is a good extension for our need.

BlockIt link is not working

I don't think there's need for Chrome to block sites. Anyone knowledgeable enough to want to block access to certain sites (or ads) should be able to do it outside the browser, at the admin level by using proxy servers or host files.

The vasa 1 response is exactly why we are writing - the arrogance of assume what our level of knowledge is and using it as a criteria is the typical insentive, in fact dumb or ignorant, techie response.  Anybody rude enough to write that shouldn't be allowed to use Chrome - how's that!!!

Re: How to restrict specific web site access gbarton 6/13/11 7:48 PM
Chrome has an optional extension call TinyFiltr which gives you the ability to block websites. It's great.
