Internet Tips: Safeguard Your Reputation While Socially Networking

Browse Like You Used To

Remember when the Web was young? As the Internet becomes the venue of mundane tasks like banking, e-mail, and socializing, new online discoveries occur less frequently. Sometimes it seems as if the old magic is gone. The StumbleUpon toolbar for Firefox and IE brings back the wonder of the new by serving up fascinating Web sites you wouldn't have found otherwise. After specifying your areas of interest, you simply click the Stumble button whenever you feel understimulated, and you'll embark on a new Internet tangent. You can recommend sites you find rewarding to the StumbleUpon community by clicking the toolbar's 'I like it!' button. Browse to Firefox Add-ons: StumbleUpon to get the Firefox toolbar, and to StumbleUpon for the IE version.
