StumbleUpon all set to beat Digg

Heads up! It looks like StumbleUpon has introduced some new features recently, new features that are bound to push StumbleUpon into a position that can seriously pose a challenge to Digg!

StumbleUpon has provided users with a better alternative to their cumbersome browser plug-ins, a web-based Stumble toolbar that anybody can use to Stumble interesting links.

StumbleUpon also introduced a Partner Program and let’s see what Jason Kincaid from TechCrunch has said about it:
…StumbleUpon is introducing a partner program for sites that will take advantage of the web toolbar. At launch, The Huffington Post and HowStuffWorks will include widgets alongside their articles that will allow users to launch a StumbleUpon browser toolbar that is restricted to their sites (a toolbar launched at Huffington Post would only stumble across Huffington Post articles). The program will likely be a big success, as it allows partner sites to increase their page views by introducing users to new content, while helping StumbleUpon reach a broader audience…
