The Expanding Web

I’ve realized I’ve gotten into a bit of a rut when it comes to web surfing lately. I could probably count on my fingers and toes the number of sites I regularly visit to keep up on events, technology, coding, linux… Luckily, one of those places I check off and on is mozilla.org to keep up with firefox. I recently decided to give the 1.5 beta of Firefox a spin, and while attempting to updated some of my favorite extensions, I ran across one for StumbleUpon a collaborative site review and grouping system that includes a button to randomly pick a site based on your preferences and sites you’ve recommended. Unlike other “random” link systems, this one tends to take you to a quality site you will actually be interested in.
Well, I was hooked, so I installed it at work and at home, but while my bookmarks lists grew in both places, I felt it might be more useful put my bookmarks online so I can share them – enter another website and cool extension Del.icio.us and Foxylicious, an extension that make it easy to add and maintain my Del.icio.us social bookmarks. Del.icio.us makes keeping and sharing bookmarks easy, but it also ranks and list new links and most popular links, as well as popular tags. I can see another time sink-hole opening…
