Here, are 5 free StumbleUpon extension for Google Chrome browser. StumbleUpon is a great and one of the most popular web services to submit your interest and discover new things available over the web.
However, in order to submit a link, you need to create an account over StumbleUpon to let others visit the pages you have submitted. The good part is that you can submit your interest according to different categories such as technology, photos, news, videos and many more. Well, I would say submitting links under respective category makes it very much easier for readers to look into the desired one directly, without browsing around over the entire bundle of post.
