fichey – browse sites which are currently popular

fichey shows sites from a specified date that were popular on Del.icio.us, Digg, Downfly, Reddit and StumbleUpon.

Billy writes:

Fichey saves pages from some of the top websites and shows them to you in a static “microfiche”-like format.

Therefore, your computer doesn’t spend time rendering a page, requesting lots of separate images, running javascript, etc etc. You just get to see the content and move on (since most of the pages we see, we’re not interested in.).

Pretty neat stuff to waste some time.

Also check out downfly, Chasen’s other site. downfly lets you easily send links to friends and see what are the most popular sites amongst your friends. You can also see which of your friends clicked the link you sent, as well as how much the link gets sent around. Additionally, you have the option to join a discussion about the link.
