Mozilla Fast Forward Add-on for Site Discovery
Article by George Norman
On 06 Feb 2009
Do you like to visit certain types of web pages, or are you on the lookout for a particular type of info on a web page? Some sites have a “people that watched this also watched” or “people who bought this also bough” feature that moves you from page to page while maintaining focus on your interests. The Fast Forward add-on for Firefox does pretty much the same thing – it seamlessly takes you from the page you are currently visiting to the page most users visited next.

“The Fast Forward button answers the question, "Where do people go after they view this page?" We take you to the most popular page people went to next after the page you are on. Follow people to find new content easily without having to look around. Besides, it's just fun to see what everyone thinks is interesting next,” says the Fast Forward team.

According to the add-on’s developers, there are several reasons why you should use this piece of software (as opposed to using StumbleUpon):
1. The page you are directed to is not randomly selected; it is relevant to the page you started from.
2. StumbleUpon requires you to set up an account/register. Fast Forward is a simple Firefox add-on that can be used “straight out of the box” so to speak.
3. The StumbleUpon toolbar can be annoying at time (at least I thing so); Fast Forward adds just one 1 button next to the Forward tab.

Staying on the topic of site discovery, here is one add-on that does not take any relevance into consideration, it just helps you randomly access web pages: Random Page.

“Try my add-on which is quite similar [to Random Site], but does not pick up pages from the Google cache. It is based on the feature rich Yahoo BOSS API, a powerful randomizer and has a shortcut to launch a random page,” the add-on’s developer told FindMySoft.
