Stumbling The Web?

Has anyone else tried out the Stumble Upon plugin for Firefox? http://www.stumbleupon.com/

If not it gives you a Stumble Upon toolbar with a Stumble button as well as other options. When you download and sign up you can choose from various interests and the Stumble button will take you to random sites based on your interests.

I've just been messing with it a bit this a.m. and have ran into a few interesting flash animations and an interesting web design concept at http://www.dontclick.it

Also you can send page recommendations and view the favorites of friends, etc...

Looks like a cool feature. I just gave up with firefox after it being to buggy for me. Internet explorer >* ;-)

I've been playing with Stumble off and on and it is a pretty nice little tool. Hasn't taken me to very many sites that weren't of interest, and most are sites I wouldn't likely find otherwise.

Also, for firefox users, you should check out the Gestures plug in. It lets you define mouse movements (while holding the mouse button down) to perform browser functions (forward, back, home, clear cookies, and much more)

UPDATE: So he who informed me of Stumble Upon only mentioned it as a Firefox plugin. Upon actually paying attention you can get it for IE as well... Enjoy

I get a little paranoid wondering what else they've bundled in there that may wanna phone home. Course since I don't use Internet Exploder, maybe a feller would be pretty safe to use it with Firefox.
