StumbleUpon is a social Link sharing site. If you are an information seeker like me, but are tired of searching google for finding interesting site, then worry no more, StumbleUpon will help you discover and share great websites. The coolest thing about StumbleUpon is that, with just a click of a button you will be taken to an interesting site from the list of categories that you choose. And trust me its quite addictive.
The StumbleUpon toolbar is a must to have in your browser. If you dont have it, you are missing some fun of internet.
Apart from using StumbleUpon for surfing, you can also use to meet like minded people.
StumbleUpon is also cool, if you want to surf through the numerous videos that have started flooding on the website due to the popular emergence of social video sharing sites like youtube and googlevideo.
