    "Warning -- It Won't Go Away"

    November 5, 2010  |   By TheRealStranger

    Version: StumbleUpon 3.73

    Pros

    What's wrong outweighs what's right by 6,000 to 1.

    Cons

    StumbleUpon refuses to leave my computer. I have killed the program according to instructions, but it still gives me prompts sometimes when I try to call up Firefox and I can't get on the Web until I answer the stumbleupon prompt.

    Summary

    Any program that slows you down and won't go away when you want it to is malware. Stay away from it.

    "It truly is a blast!"

    May 28, 2010  |   By mikoyangurevich15

    Version: StumbleUpon 3.64

    Pros

    "Stumble" through a vast amount of web pages that others thought might be of interest.The thing is that they most often are!

    Cons

    This add on is HIGHLY addictive.

    Summary

    It could use more default locations to randomly browse.But it would take months of stumbling to exhaust the ones that are already there.

    "AMAZING PROGRAM THAT WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE = )"

    April 25, 2010  |   By Angmarr

    Version: StumbleUpon 3.64

    Pros

    Customize your topics and it shows sites relating to your topics ...
    The more you use, the better its selection process is ...
    Over 100 topics selectable from dome 500ish topics I believe

    Cons

    topics based of user opinion and recommendation.
    TIME WASTING!!! (this might be a PRO) : )

    Summary

    "SU Has Released Version 4 - Poorly Developed"

    December 19, 2009  |  

    Version: StumbleUpon 3.34

    Pros

    None. Compared to the old version which rightly deserves high marks, this version has no redeeming features.

    Cons

    Ability to add friends with common interests has been removed. Visual editing of your pages has been removed. Visitor counter is not accurate. Customization of pages has been limited to only a few basic tweaks. Overall feel is less intuitive.

    Summary

    The company says the new version (V4) is more social and user friendly but the exact opposite is true.

    "Like a friend that introduces you to cool, new stuff"

    September 30, 2009  |   By dippermay

    Version: StumbleUpon 3.34

    Pros

    It is often difficult to find people with my aesthetic and tastes. StumbleUpon has a unique user interface that pinpoints fascinating content tailored for me

    Cons

    Nothing major to point out that's bad. The only glitch is that sometimes I am sent to sites that require some advanced plug-ins which I hadn't yet installed. Otherwise it was fine.

    Summary

    StumbleUpon has got it right. It's a great sight and I hope it goes far. Before discovering StumbeUpon, the majority of stuff I'd run into while surfing was so uninteresting to me that it felt like a waste of time. Sites that have the most hits from users or are considered more popular are usually very uninteresting to me. StumbleUpon guides me to 'stumble' into very interesting territory, while tracking what I like, taking me to places specifically tailored to me. The longer I stay on and vote at StumbleUpon, the more interesting the recommendations become. And the interface is very easy. I highly recommend StumbleUpon.
