SAN FRANCISCO, USA: StumbleUpon, one of the most popular ways to discover new Web sites and videos on the Internet, announced an enhanced version of its rapidly adopted toolbar to support the release of Firefox 3, the latest version of Mozilla's award-winning Web browser.
The new StumbleUpon toolbar has been optimized to take advantage of the most popular features in Firefox 3 with new bookmarking capabilities, as well as enhancements to the current sharing and discovery features for the StumbleUpon community of more than 5 million users.
StumbleUpon's popularity and rapid user growth is proof of the need for tools that help users cut through the clutter of the Web in order to discover what's personally relevant to them. The new version of the StumbleUpon toolbar takes advantage of some of the coolest additions to Firefox 3, including the Smart Location Bar and the browser's improved performance and speed.
With the StumbleUpon toolbar on Firefox 3 users can:
* Easily access their favorite Stumbles -- Users will now be able to quickly import all of their StumbleUpon "thumbs up" sites to their Firefox 3 bookmarks. The Firefox 3 Smart Location Bar will allow StumbleUpon users to quickly access their past favorites by typing text into the location bar where the auto-complete function will begin to display matching Stumbles.
* Share sites faster and easier -- This enhancement allows users to send the sites they want to share more quickly and makes it easier to see when they receive new StumbleUpon shares from friends.
* Optimize your Stumbling -- StumbleUpon will now offer StumbleTips to enhance the discovery experience and introduce users to some of StumbleUpon's coolest and lesser-known features.
"The StumbleUpon toolbar for Firefox 3 will greatly improve the way users interact with StumbleUpon," said Michael Buhr, general manager of StumbleUpon. "Previously, users had to search through all of their past Stumbles to find a site they rated in the past; now they can retrieve that site in seconds with just a few keystrokes."
The enhanced StumbleUpon toolbar for Firefox 3 will be available in the next few days.
