SimilarWeb Firefox Add-on: Discover Sites You'll Definitely Like
Article by George Norman

When you login to your YouTube account, you get suggestions based on the videos you’ve watched before; when you type in a query in Google, you get search suggestions to help you out; when you look up an item on Amazon you get suggestions, and the list could go on an on. SimilarWeb is a Firefox add-on that emulates these web pages, and by that I mean it provides you with alternative web pages that you might want to visit. The thing is that this list of suggestions is based on the web page you are currently visiting, so you know the results will take you to a web page you will enjoy.

“SimilarWeb takes web2.0 to the next level, users don’t have to do anything to discover new and relevant content, you just go to any site you already know and take it from there…The goal and vision is to help each user break out of his regular 5-8 sites that he visits daily, and show him new content, open his mind! And what’s great is that everyone can find what they need, no matter where you’re from or what are your browsing skills,” explains SimilarWeb.

We’ve covered some handy Firefox add-ons that help you discover random web pages before (here and here), but to my mind SimilarWeb adds a whole new level of functionality because it not only presents you with web pages you probably never knew existed (with the emphasis on probably, because an avid internaut like yourself has seen quite a fair share of sites and some of the suggestions might prove to be familiar), it also ensures you will end up on a web page that corresponds to your preferences (not just some random site on the web).

For additional details on SimilarWeb, you can visit the dedicated web page here.
If you would like to get the SimilarWeb Firefox add-on, a download location is available here.

Also, it might interest you to know that Firefox 3.0.8 update has been released – details here.
