Let me give a disclaimer first: this is too addictive. Once I started looking at the optical illusions, I spent more than an hour browsing those and other optical illusions on the website. They are simply too good. So, if you are trying to find way to improve productivity, you might be better off giving this extension a miss ;)

That is pretty much all that is there to this Chrome extension. It is simple, does just one thing, but can still end up taking lot of your time. I really like this extension and am really struggling with whether I should uninstall it or leave it there. I think I will leave it for a while, but if it continues to distract me a lot, I am going to put it on the chopping block.
