StumbleUpon is a discovery engine (a form of web search engine) that finds and recommends web content to its users. Its features allow users to discover and rate Web pages, photos, and videos that are personalized to their tastes and interests using peer-sourcing and social-networking principles. Toolbar versions exist for Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Internet Explorer, and Safari. StumbleUpon also works with some independent Mozilla-based browsers. StumbleUpon was founded in November 2002[7] by Garrett Camp, Geoff Smith, Justin LaFrance and Eric Boyd during Garrett's time in post-graduate school in Calgary, Canada. The idea of creating a company was established before the content: of the five or six ideas for products, StumbleUpon was chosen. Garrett describes in a BBC interview the moment for him in which he felt the company had really taken off: "When we passed the half a million mark (in registered users), it seemed more real."

One of my favorite time-wasting services. All you need to do is sign up, install the tool bar, and away you go. Hit the stumble button and it'll lead you to a random nook in the shambolic mess that we call the internet.

As an added bonus, you can go into the settings so that you're sent to websites that cater to your interests. Into news? You can do that. How about web games? Yeah, man, you can do that, too. Into modern science? Hell yeah, bro, they got that!

So download it. Especially if you're avoiding the inevitability of having to complete even the simplest of tasks.

You'll never do another thing again.

StumbleUpon is a great way to kill time and find new and interesting stuff online. You can customize it by specifying things that you like to make it more personalized for your tastes. Some sites it comes up with for you are boring, but a lot of them are neat to waste a few minutes on at least, and I usually end up bookmarking 10-15 sites to come back to later before I'm done using the site. It's easy to use and fun.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

One of the very few politics sites on the internet that is truly unbiased and is not pushing neither a right or a left-wing agenda.

It is a fantastic compendium, compiled twice daily - once in the morning and once in the afternoon - of all the news that is worth reading - in a read...

BuzzFeed

Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

Buzzfeed is known as the laughingstock of the internet, for its truly vile cesspool of social justice warriors, for its overly dramatic authoritari...

The Huffington Post

by tvanstee

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect. It preaches equality and diversity, and yet it's boardroom is nearly completely composed of white women. It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...
