Clucast is a Firefox extension that lets users attach clues to any topic they find on the Web. Sound confusing? Well, you're not the only one left scratching your head.

A program isn't very easy to use when you have to view not one, not two, but four demos to figure out what it is and how it works. We finally figured out that clues are basically one user's opinion of a particular subject matter. After downloading, a toolbar appeared on our browser window. Clucast is free, but you'll have to register before you can add any of your own clues. When we clicked the Markers button, several terms were highlighted on the Web page, but when we hovered our mouse over each marker, a blank window appeared--no clues in sight. When we tried to add a clue of our own, we highlighted the text and clicked the Add Clue button. Again, a blank window appeared. We tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program to see if it was a glitch on our end, but we still had the same problem.

So after sitting through four demos, we were never able to view or add clues. In theory, this program sounds like a great idea, but in practice, it needs more work before we can give it a recommendation.
