Why run when you can stumble?

Say you have an interest in art, but have run the many obvious links and sites the internet has to offer countless times without coming across anything interesting or indeed impressive. Or say you're very much interested in literature but would much rather just pick up a book than trawl through the internet for hours looking for the elusive catch that makes the search mildly less futile. Suppose random searching could become a thing of the past, and the internet were able to keep you constantly amused without having to revisit old sites just to restore your faith in humanity? Well I've recently stumbled upon something that can make boring browsing a thing of the past. Namely a relatively new toolbar: StumbleUpon.

The problem with the internet today is that nobody knows what to do to find things they're really interested in without going through a load of garbage in the search. What StumbleUpon does is to take into account your personal interests and literally at the click of a button find you a page it thinks you'll enjoy. It's as simple as that! The other amazing capability is that it learns with you - as you 'like' or 'dislike' the pages that come up it can gain an understanding of things that you'll like and things that you won't like. In simpler terms, the longer you use it the better sites it gives you!

I no longer remain bored when I go to sit down at my computer to alleviate some boredom. StumbleUpon just makes every click both a surprise and an enjoyment! So if you want, just visit the website or search it on google and get going! I'll put the link at the bottom of the page. Thought I'd spread the good news as much as possible while it's still fresh! I hope you enjoy this as much as I have and indeed still am.
