StumbleUpon From Any Browser, Coming Soon?

StumbleUpon is a social network which brings in steady traffic rather than bringing a burst and disappearing altogether. The only problem with StumbleUpon though was that it pre-dominantly supported stumbling through toolbars only, unless a website has a StumbleUpon button to make things easier for you.

Having toolbars for each and every browser is not easy though, and the team at StumbleUpon will be releasing a new web toolbaron Tuesday, which could fit into any browser without users having to install anything. The toolbar would actually be a (i)frame, that would give users stumbling options, just like a regular toolbar.
