StumbleUpon - SHOCK! - browser bar actually worth installing

StumbleUpon It works a bit like Google's "I feel lucky" but with a bit of focus: - you can choose the category of site you're interested in - the sites are ranked by other visitors so the quality should be high (and this seems to largely be the case) It's informed browsing without the hassle of actually having to think. Very quick and easy: 1. Download and install the bar. 2. Sign up (very few details) 3. Choose areas of interest e.g. media, health, outdoors, arts/history 4. Now when you click on the button, you'll be taken to a site that is within your areas of interest. 5. Once there you can rank the site just by clicking 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down' buttons. 6. Move on There are lots of other things you can do with it (add comments, email links, wiki lookups etc) but I'll leave it there. It's a 2.0 take on Web Rings.
