The best social networking add-ons for all your browsers

If you're a social networking butterfly, or if you have the malevolent aspirations of one day becoming a 'social media expert,' you almost certainly spend a vast amount of time surfing the Web. You probably use a modern browser like Firefox or Chrome, and you almost certainly have a ton of tabs open at the same time. It can be hard work, keeping track of multiple websites. Hitting F5 is a...

StumbleUpon for Android, now with 'app stumbling'

StumbleUpon for Android first appeared back in August. Its debut didn't bring much to the table: in effect, it was just a miniaturised version of the desktop browser toolbar. Today, however, with the release of version 1.3 for Android, StumbleUpon lets you stumble the Android Market. Don't get too excited just yet, though. App stumbling definitely works, but it's not an excellent experience by...

5 great content discovery sites which aren't Digg

Despite what you may have heard in the last two weeks, Digg is not dead. It is, however, a very different service than when it started. What used to be a great place to find interesting links and hilarious commentary has become, for almost all intents and purposes, a Twitter clone. Digg isn't about to shut its doors, but I do get the feeling that regular, loyal Diggers are looking to take their...

StumbleUpon's new iPhone app is a killer way to waste time

If you've got some time to kill on your iPhone or Android device, StumbleUpon's new mobile apps are a good bet. I've been testing the iPhone version of StumbleUpon this weekend, and it has everything you'd want from a StumbleUpon mobile experience. The app's free, and it's tailored specifically to mobile browsing, so it beats opening the StumbleUpon website in Safari. There's a toolbar for...

Official StumbleUpon extension hits Google Chrome, not as good as other versions

StumbleUpon has officially landed in the Google Chrome Extensions Gallery, but I've got to say -- it's just not the same as its counterpart on other browsers. In fact, it's little more than the browser-independent toolbar you see on the top of links shortened and shared with their su.pr service. It does tie in to your StumbleUpon account and let you thumbs up/down pages, share them with your...

StumbleUpon's Su.pr URL shortener now open to the public

Su.pr is a URL shortening service similar to TinyURL, Snipr, and dozens of other services that let you take a long URL and condense it into just a few characters to share in an email, Twitter message, Facebook status update, or anywhere else. But there are few things that set Su.pr apart. First, like Bit.ly, Su.pr offers analytics that let you know how many times users have clicked on your...

eBay sells StumbleUpon back to... StumbleUpon

A few years ago eBay went on a buying spree and started snatching up companies ranging from Skype to StumbleUpon. While it made plenty of sense for eBay to acquire PayPal, a company that many eBay users were already using to facilitate financial transactions, Skype and StumbleUpon seemed like odd fits. Sure, you could try to figure out a way to use a social web site discovery tool to promote...

StumbleUpon to offer short URLs with su.pr

Hot on the heels of Digg's new short URL feature StumbleUpon's founder has announced - albeit somewhat cryptically - that they may be working on their own truncation tool. "su.pr is coming," reads the Twitter update, though the link currently redirects to StumbleUpon.com. The moves definitely make sense for both sites. With so many Twitter users sharing links via shortened URLs, it presents an...

Digg could take on StumbleUpon, TinyURL with new toolbar

It looks like Digg is working on a StumbleUpon-like toolbar that lets users digg, bury, or find related stories while surfing the web. Veronica Belmont first spotted a screenshot of the toolbar on Flickr, and it looks like the folks at TechCrunch managed to track down some additional information about it. If that info is correct, here's how it works. Users will see a toolbar the toolbar pop up...

StumbleUpon relaunches: No browser toolbar necessary

StumbleUpon may be one of the most innovative social website discovery services around. But the service has always had one major stumbling block: users needed to sign up for accounts and install a browser toolbar. And some percentage of potential users are just never going to take those steps. Now StumbleUpon has removed those restrictions by rolling out a new version of the site that works...

Opera Stumbler brings StumbleUpon to the Opera web browser

Thinking about switching from Firefox or Internet Explorer to the Opera web browser, but can't imagine life without the StumbleUpon toolbar? StumbleUpon has yet to release an official toolbar or plugin for Opera. And while there is certainly a way to rank web pages and discover new pages without a toolbar, it's rather inelegant. Opera Stumbler is a third party plugin that gives you all the same...

Use StumbleUpon in any web browser without installing a toolbar

StumbleUpon is a web discovery service that makes it easy to find cool and interesting web sites. All you have to do is install a browser toolbar and start hitting the "stumble" button whenever you're bored. The service also begins to get a sense of your tastes as you give various pages a thumbs up or down. But there's at least one problem with StumbleUpon: There're no toolbar for Opera,...

Discover what people are looking at with picurls

While we're still waiting for Digg to roll out a dedicated image section, many of the top 'stories" submitted to social news sites like Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon, and Del.icio.us are funny, interesting, or beautiful images. Picurls collects the all and makes it easy to find some of the most viewed pictures of the day from popular websites. Picurls pulls images from all of the sites we...

Find StumbleUpon's top stumblers with StumbleRank

Social bookmarking/web discovery site StumbleUpon maintains a list of user statistics. It just doesn't make that list available to the public. So if you want to see who the most active or popular stumblers are, StumbleUpon won't tell you. That's where StumbleRank comes in. The unofficial page comes from blogger Muhammad Saleem of ProNet Advertising. The site shows the StumbleUpon users who have...

StumbleUpon SearchReviews: social rankings of search engine results

StumbleUpon is moving beyond the browser toolbar. The social ranking service lets users give web sites a thumbs up or down, write reviews, and find random popular websites by clicking a "Stumble!" button. Now StumbleUpon is launching a SearchReviews feature that will allow users to see StumbleUpon member reviews next to search results from Google, Yahoo!, Ask, Wikipedia, Flickr, and YouTube. If...
