Share Your Top 30 Visited Domains with Visitation Cloud for Firefox

Curious about the domains that you visit most or perhaps you want a way to share that information on a social website? Now you can see and share the 30 most visited domains in your browser’s history with the Visitation Cloud extension.

Accessing Visitation Cloud

As soon as you install the extension you can get started using it. Depending on how your browser’s UI is set up there are three methods for accessing Visitation Cloud: a “Visitation Cloud Button” inserted at the end of your “Bookmarks Toolbar”, a menu listing in the “Tools Menu”, and a “Toolbar Button” (not shown here).

Visitation Cloud in Action

As soon as you activate Visitation Cloud a new window will appear with your top domains displayed in a cloud format. Keep in mind that this is more than just a static image…each listing is actually a clickable link.

Clicking on any of the listings will open that domain in a new tab or window depending on your particular browser settings.

If you feel that you have a great set of links and want to share it with your friends then that is easy to do. Right click anywhere within the Visitation Cloud Window and select “Save as…”. The “cloud image” can be saved in “.png, .jpg, or Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg)” format. For our example we chose the “.svg format”.

Perhaps you love the set of links but not the layout…right click and select “Randomize” to change how the cloud looks.

Accessing the Visitation Cloud Image in other Browsers

Once you have your “cloud image” saved you can share it with friends or save it for your own future use in other browsers. Here is our “cloud image” open in Opera Browser with link opening in progress.

    how does that share your top sites and not just list them?

    @Matthew Lucas – You can post the image to a social website or send it as an e-mail attachment to family and friends. ^__^
