Editors' Review

The StumbleUpon add-on for Internet Explorer wears a lot of hats--random site surfer, social networker, bookmarker, and site reviewer. It's a powerful application for its size, although it's much larger than the Firefox version.

Installation requires running the executable file, and removing this add-on from the new Explorer requires going through Windows' Control Panel, whereas its Firefox cousin can be added and removed from within the browser.

Browser preference aside, both versions have the same toolbar. We struck no snags when used with other add-ons or programs. Once activated, one click is all it took to get going. The "Stumble!" logo whips the user around the Net at the user's pace, based on categories selected during installation. Hundreds of topics are available and can be updated at will, with no selection limit.

The other StumbleUpon functions are just as user-friendly in the IE version as they are in Firefox. Ratings, sharing and reviewing sites, and updating the friends list are all accessible with just one click.

Sometimes, "stumbling" would take us to a StumbleUpon page that reminded us to upload a profile image or some other annoying-but-trivial nonsense. Another "stumble" would whisk us to our next random Web page.

If Web surfing is the new channel surfing, then StumbleUpon works as an outstanding remote.

Opens up a whole lot more of the web for my eyes to see & my mind to absorb. I love the way it learns more about my personal likes & diuslikes each time I use it.

"Slick, but too many bad sites"

November 28, 2007  |  By Radhaz

 |  Version: StumbleUpon Toolbar for Internet Explorer 3.010

Pros

I found many sites that were of interest to me that I probably didn't have the time to locate.

Cons

Some links, at least 2-5 each session, crash Internet Explorer (version 7). That problem, either with Internet Explorer or Stumble, needs to be corrected before I continue to use this product.

 |  Version: StumbleUpon Toolbar for Internet Explorer 3.010

Pros

Seems to only like Firefox.

Used it before. It was fun but now that I don't run Firefox looks like I don't get to use this as well. What a joke.

"Terrific concept. Keeps surfing appetite keen. Endless entertainment. Addictive"

October 30, 2007  |  By michael obrien

 |  Version: StumbleUpon Toolbar for Internet Explorer 3.010

Pros

I was getting a little bored after one year of P.C. experience, then I found Stumbleupon and I haven't had a dull moment yet. It is totally addictive once you start seeing all the fascinating, informative sites, you have to Stumble just one more time. I put almost every site in my favorites since you can only visit the site once. I lost several music theory sites before I found that out. The social interaction features are another whole dimention themselves. Favorite site!!

 |  Version: StumbleUpon Toolbar for Internet Explorer 3.010

Pros

What fun. I get to places that I would never have found otherwise.

Careful this can become somewhat addictive. Not all sites are "fabulous" but with just a click you're off to something else.
