Spurl.net web site recommendations

Spurl.net is one of the more interesting web page recommendation systems I've seen. Some of the novel features: No download required. No login required. Doesn't require rating tens of sites before seeing recommendations.

Using it is quite easy. Just drag-and-drop the Javascript bookmark icon into the bookmark bar of your browser. Go to a few of your favorite web sites and click the "Spurl!" bookmark link on each of them. Then, go back to spurl.net to see your web site recommendations.

The user base appears to be very small right now. The site appears to try to generate related sites even when only a couple users have seen a site, so the quality is sometimes laughably bad, but the quality is higher on more popular URLs. It'll be interesting to watch this site as the user base grows.
