Etisalat internet subscribers can now access the StumbleUpon website, which had been blocked by the local service provider just a few days ago.

Owned by eBay, StumbleUpon delivers specific content to users who click on a ‘Stumble!' button on their browser toolbar. Pages are selected for display based on user's ratings of previous pages, ratings by his or her friends and by the ratings of users with similar interests.

Du customers had reported no access limitations to the website.

Twitter and Digg profile pages along with flickr have also been blocked without any specific reason. Being a graphic designer these are the basic sites i need! Is Etisalat going to do anything about that? Editor's Reply: We have requested an explanation from Etisalat as to why these sites are blocked by them and not by du, and are waiting for their reply.
