Talk Gets Even Cheaper

We were browsing a travel Web site the other day and got a lot of help from Yoono, a scrolling toolbar that fits onto Firefox. Scrolling across the top of our browser window were related sites, such as http://www.gridskipper.com and http://www.seatguru.com, which we'd never heard of, along with the more familiar names like http://www.travelzoo.com, and http://www.travelocity.com.

Yoono would have scrolled related Web sites across the top no matter what subject we were browsing. If you're on a news site, you will see suggestions for newspapers, news magazines, etc., and you can click on any of them as they scroll by. On the left-hand side of the screen are links to articles, video clips and blogs related to the subject matter you're looking at.

Yoono is free from http://www.yoono.com, but it only works with the Firefox Web browser from Mozilla. http://www.firefox.com, which works with Windows, Mac or Linux, is the second most popular browser after Microsoft's Internet Explorer, and it's free at Firefox.com.
