    Hi,

    Wanted to know if there are any free web filtering software for mac. I wish to filter certain urls e.g. twitter, facebook etc so I don't get distracted whilst working. I would use parental controls but they don't work in the admin account.

    I know that I could remove the filter, but it would help keep me concentrated.

    Many thanks,
    Zach

    Make a new account with Parental Controls enabled and use that instead

    Was thinking of doing that, but all of my stuff to do with work is on this account.

    OpenDNS offers web filtering. Although I don't filter, I do use their DNS service.
