Two or three years ago, people used the web to find information. It was fun to go to Google, type something in, and find it. Facebook was still evolving, MySpace was distracting people, and Twitter was about breakfast.

In 2009 though, as the social web evolves, most people are using the web to share information with people they care about. And it's getting easier to do that.

The Firefox extension Shareaholic makes this task a breeze.

According to TechCrunch, they have just surpassed 1 million downloads and are getting ready to close a seed round of funding.

I think this plugin is so valuable that it should be installed on Firefox natively. In fact, this functionality should be in all web browsers. Have you tried it? How do you share stuff online?

  • I never cared about sharing bookmarks.

    I never cared about sharing bookmarks. I'd much
    rather use bookmark sync like xmarks.

    Just another stupid "social networking" app.
    There's a gazillion bookmark sharing sites and
    plugins, BTW. This isn't something new.

  • "How do you share stuff online?"

    I don't. That's why plug-ins like Shareaholic should remain plug-ins. Why bloat my browser down with utilities I don't use, need, or want?

    ...it is built in.

    No it shouldn't. Listen to this: not everyone gives a monkeys about sharing bookmarks! Honestly. I know that's shocking news to you, but it's a fact...and I am just one of millions that doesn't bother. So why the heck would I want a useless button on my browser button bar?

    No it shouldn't. It's much easier to copy and paste web addresses in an email if you want to share with someone you know. Shareaholic is a total waste of time.
