Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great complement!


Once great, now just another crappy site Rated 1 out of 5 stars

During 3 years I have been using SU almost non-stop, 10k stumbles later in 2 different profiles, I regret to say the good old days are over. Reasons? There are plenty:
1) Content: I don't know what happened to the filtering, before I got plenty of good stuff, and after the revamp, there are many repetitions, old stuff, wrongly classified stuff and it is all so boring...
2) Profiles: before the user profiles were fully customizable, interesting and gave a good idea of the person behind, now it feels as if you were entering an hospital room after another. The site has been de-humanized.
3) Spam: too much of it, and the "reporting spam" either is gone (depending on the update) or has no effect. Besides, the advertising is not related to the content you are stumbling at all....
4) Channels: horrible...

I'm leaving StumbleUpon until they revert to the old design. Menwhile I'll be lurking on reddit.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.11.1-signed).
