Yesterday I was going through the preseason videos for the old “thirty day challenge” by Ed Dale. Now it’s called only challenge and you find it here. They used to have Flock and Firefox as their web browser previous years but have decided that Google Chrome is the best pick this year. Its fast and reliable. So I downloaded the newest version and found out that its also been a lot of updates to it. Like the functions to install add-ons like in Firefox. That’s the only thing that kept me from changing browsers. So I go through all the top add-ons in the chrome site and finally find the good old stumble upon add-on I always had used in Firefox.
You tend to forget how powerful this tool is. Because I normally use Google to get answers, but they only show me the most used resources and can’t give me all the web. But in stumble upon you find great nuggets. You just install the plug-in and click on the stumble button, then it takes you to great sites posted by other stumble upon users have posted.
Like yesterday I stumbled upon these great sites:
http://www.marcandangel.com/ A fantastic site which have good useable content, just a thrill for the brain to go through.
http://webdesignledger.com/ A massive collection of great designer tips, fonts and other stuff, all in high quality.
http://slightlywarped.com/crapfactory/curiosities/2010/bees_under_glass.htm Odd pictures, but it show you how bees operates inside their little cubes.

I hope you have enjoyed some of the links and will try out the stumble upon plug-in to your Firefox or Chrome yourself, if you find any golden nuggets give them in a comment below!
