StumbleUpon

I think I might of found the best time waster on the internet, well besides this blog that is. It is called StumbleUpon. It's an add on for the FireFox browser. The concept behind it is similar to the next blog button Blogger has yet when you hit the StumbleUpon's button it brings up a random webpage. It let's you channel surf the whole wide web.

Ok maybe I'm getting ahead of myself. First StumbleUpon only works with Mozilla's FireFox Browser. So first if you don't already have FireFox you than need to download Firefox, then you download StumbleUpon and create a user account. You than define your preferences as to what types of stuff your interested in and what type of web pages you would like to see. Once your account is set up you can start stumbling around the internet. If you find a site that you like you can than hit the thumbs up icon and give it a review. If you don't like a site you can than give it a thumbs down. The more you rate the web pages you StumbleUpon they better StumbleUpon will get at delivering stuff that you enjoy.

This is a great way to find web pages that you find interesting but yet wouldn't think of searching for. I warn you once you start you won't be able to stop. You'll keep hitting that StumbelUpon button because you'll constantly want to see what is next. It is highly addicting and highly time wasting, but that's why I'm recommending it.

So what are you waiting for start Stumbling now!
