Features:

  1. Block unwanted domains.
  2. Prevent access to a range of websites using wildcard matching or regular expression matching.

  5. Display a custom message on blocked pages.
  6. Time and date based blocking. Only block access to the websites at specified times and dates. This feature can be configured per hostname.

  9. Closes annoying pop-ups as soon as the opening request is received.
