Fast Foward Adds "Most Visited Next" Button to Firefox [Featured Firefox Extension]

Windows/Mac/Linux (Firefox): Rather than search or hit "Back" to find a related link, the Fast Forward button asks you to rely on what other people jumped to next in their own browsing.
The add-on adds a button to the right of your standard forward button (though it can be moved anywhere) which sends you to the most-visited page that other Fast Forward users headed to from the page you're looking at, or related pages if there's no exact match. The service doesn't require registration, but does ask for anonymized browsing data to do its thing. Currently, the app says it has 200,000 people contributing to its "most visited next" database.

Your mileage will certainly vary, but it's an intriguing, lighter-weight alternative to StumbleUpon and similar social browsing/bookmarking sites.
Fast Forward is a free download for Firefox 3 and works wherever that browser does. Check out the questions and explanations it gives on installation below:
