There must be millions of websites. I'd like to hop from one to the next when I'm bored. Much like the random link over there <----. My blog has a random button to see other blogs, why not the entire web?

Be surprised by what will turn up!

Or just sit there like an idiot filled with anticipation as you jump from boring to boring.

Should be done by google.

There is also a firefox plugin for this. You press the button and it "automaticly browses the web" -It will click a random link on your current page, wait a specifyed ammount of time and repeat. [Cerium, Jul 09 2006]

       Thanks guys, this will keep me busy for hours.

       He gets a vote for, because zeno didn't know these existed before he wrote it. He should, however, look on the web for things relating to an idea next time. Not randomly.

       If it was truly random, you could use it for an investigation into what percentage of the interweb is porn. Now that would be a good investigation.

       I have heard that it takes only 50 milliseconds (see Slashdot link) to jugdge a site, so, what do you think about creating a browser, with which you could view 20 sites per second?
Inyuki, Jul 10 2006
  

       [dbmag9] www.randomwebsite.net filters out the porn sites. However, I'm sure those statistics exist out there somewhere.

       Why? And baked, which is scary. Fishbone.

       what [danpat] said, StumbleUpon is by far and away the brand leader in this game, you can stumble less randomly too, for instance stumbling between sites which your friends liked.   

       I'd liked del.icio.us to do this too.

       And I'd like a pony.

       And thank you very much for stumble upon.
