Channel your inner hipster

Last night was awesome, woohoo! Had a really great night with friends as usual. Lev, you should come over more often!

Anyway, look what I recently came across. XKCD has made a “Holistic Browser”. You type the web address you want to go to, but instead it takes you to an address someone else tried to go to. Give it a try! (Though beware, it may not be entirely safe for work.)

It’s a really fun little widget to learn about websites you’ve never visited before. There’s always a little surprise in there, and maybe it gets you interested in something new! A while back it redirected me to the MSPaintAdventures website. Good to see folks promoting Hussie’s work!

It’s a mediocre, but fun platform for advertising or recommending, too. Just set up a great site and want only a small elite of odd people to know about it? Enter it into the holistic browser a few times, maybe some people will see your site and think “hey cool let’s join”.

Okay really, it’s more of a gimmick than anything else, but really cool nonetheless. What have you found?

    They may send you to pages containing
    porn, viruses, or Justin Bieber fanfiction.
    At the very least, turn on private browsing.

    I was about to, until “Justin Bieber fanfiction”

    Haha, I guess it can be a form of advertising.

    I tried it five times, hit porn four times. It is a nice bit of fun though. Glad you had yourself some too :)
