BuzzBox’s first product is a FastForward button for your browser. Fast Forward is like following the crowds and not having to keep looking to where to go next. Press it on any webpage and be taken to the top page people went next after they visited the same page. As more content being created every second, trust the wisdom of the crowd with BuzzBox’s products and make surfing the Internet easier. As everyone shares everyone benefits. You always get something interesting based on the web page you are viewing. So if you are watching a YouTube video there is a high chance you’ll be taken to another video. If you on a sports site, you will most probably get more sports. Go to Flickr and see the pictures people are looking at. Go to Facebook and profile surf from one person to the next.

To make sharing user friendly, BuzzBox has an opt-in to share policy and doesn’t store any identifying information or even have a registration. Sharing requires no effort; it is passive, after downloading the FastForward button. BuzzBox makes surfing fun again.
