New Add On: YooNo

New Add On: YooNo

Introduction

YooNo is a community driven, smart bookmarking tool. Basically, YooNo becomes a companion tool to your bookmark folder. The key feature of YooNo is that it constantly suggests Web sites of interest, based on the current Web page you are viewing.

Who It’s For

The YooNo add on is great for the avid Web surfer, comparative shopper or Internet researcher. Because the sites that YooNo suggests are based on popularity by other users, the results are often very helpful.

Let’s say, for example, you were on Expedia.com searching for airline tickets. YooNo would share other travel related blogs and Web sites with you. The suggested Web sites would be listed in order to popularity by other YooNo users.

As a member of YooNo, you can also sync up your Internet bookmarks with your YooNo account. This way, you can have access to your bookmarks on any computer you may use.

Pros

  • Web site suggestions are useful and relevant.
  • Easy to understand interface.
  • Suggests blogs.

Cons

  • Still a small amount of active users.
  • Not all Web page results offer suggestions.

Available For

Internet Explorer and Firefox.

How It Works

Think of YooNo as your own private Internet concierge. While you spend time casually browsing along on the Internet, YooNo is constantly suggesting other blogs and Web sites based on the Web page you are viewing at any current moment.

The results YooNo suggests are listed by popularity in descending order. The results are based on user popularity, which makes the suggestions usually very helpful. Of course, you will always come across some Web pages that don’t result in any suggested sites, but that’s just how it goes sometimes.

The YooNo tool also suggests blogs, which is a nice feature for those of you who do a lot of news reading on the Web. When showing suggested blogs, YooNo shares the first few lines of text. This way, you can see if the blog is worth clicking on before leaving your current page.

The YooNo tool also has a section to show other YooNo users. This section shows users who have bookmarked the page in a shared folder. You are able to see other relevant Web sites they have bookmarked. Unfortunately, with so little users, this rarely happens, unless they are on extremely popular Web sites.

One of the most basic features YooNo offers is the ability to sync your bookmarks. You can choose to add all your bookmark folders to your YooNo member page. When adding the bookmarks to your member page, you can choose to keep them private or shared. Shared bookmark folders are then used to help rank and suggest other Web sites to other YooNo members.

The Bottom Line

YooNo isn’t for everyone, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great add on. You will either love this tool or uninstall it the same day you download it. To each their own. It’s up to you to make that choice.

Installing the Program (Firefox 2.0)

1.) Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1833/.

2.) Click on the lime Install Now button.

3.) When the software installation screen pops up, click the Install Now button again. (It’s not the same button from the previous step).

4.) Once the program is done installing, you must restart Firefox.

5.) After you restart Firefox, you should see the YooNo ticker and icons across the navigation bar and the sidebar application.

Installing the Program (Internet Explorer)

1.) Go to http://www.yoono.com/index.jsp?browser=ie.

2.) Click on the blue Download the Add On button.

3.) When the software installation screen pops up, click the Save File button.

4.) Locate the saved file and double click it.

5.) Select your language and click OK.

6.) Continue on with the YooNo installation instructions.

7.) Once the program is done installing, you must restart Internet Explorer.

8.) After you restart Internet Explorer, you should see the YooNo ticker and icons across the navigation bar and the sidebar application.

Hope you enjoy this very cool add on!
