A Monumental Milestone of Time Wasting

StumbleUpon Logo

My favorite Firefox extension has always been the StumbleUpon toolbar. I have been using it since June of 2006. Whenever I’m bored or looking for something new and interesting it’s just a button click away.

Well, all is not lost, you can always get any shows, with the commercials edited out right from the only “real” friend that you have (except for the TV), you guessed it, the Internet.
