    Agree. Also, user-managed recipes (a bit like IFTTT) that can be turned on and off.

    e.g. I'd like to create a custom recipe called "Youtube", and be able to enable or disable it when I want to (usually as a result of kids blowing the monthly data limits).

    The recipe would include the following domains because this is what you need to actually block Youtube:

    youtube.com
    googlevideo.com
    ytimg.com
    s.ytimg.com
    youtube.l.google.com
    youtube-ui.l.google.com

    Depending on what categories you have selected for blocking, these may not be enough.

    Rotblitz, I specifically said a recipe for "YouTube", and no others. I find the domains I listed successfully block all access to YouTube. Also, this list does not interfere with any other Google services or any other video services.

    I am not talking about "categories" or any other sites. Do you have a specific point in linking to a thread with dozens of posts, without providing specific information for your point, or do you just enjoy hijacking threads? You do seem to have commented on every topic in the Idea Bank.

    Thank you for your opinion.

    "I am not talking about "categories" or any other sites."

    But the original poster did.  So, why "do you just enjoy hijacking threads" instead of raising your own idea, just for YouTube?
