It seems like the guys at StumbleUpon might have picked up SiteHoppin’s new ideas. We praise them for doing that since that confirms that we are on the right path. Why didn’t StumbleUpon come up with it earlier? (They came out with this new toolbar 18 days after public beta launch of SiteHoppin.com, which means they probably “copied” our idea. Not that we care, information should be free right?)
On a technical note, the new StumbleUpon “extension” is works just like SiteHoppin’. If you look at the source, it uses the iframes.
Check out the new “secret” extension-less StumbleUpon Toobar. I think it’s still in development but we think this is good for our business since competition always create something better.
Great job GMC! (GMC is the chief architect of StumbleUpon and the creator)
