Blocking websites? On a Mac? Anybody? Answered

I want to block some websites on a Mac. We use Firefox 3, on Mac OS X 10.5. Any suggestions?

I use Aobo Filter for Mac to block website on my Mac Leopard.

If you only have a handful of websites to block, just redirect them using the hosts file. Basically you just tell your computer to go to the IP you've specified (usually 127.0.0.1-a loopback)

Here's an Apple knowledgebase article on how to edit the hosts file. The end result will look like this:

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 nakedchicks.com
127.0.0.1 hotgilfs.com
127.0.0.1 randygrannies.com

:0P

if those are real websites, i am deeply concerned.
