Rockmelt Review – Is it a new browser?
Rockmelt is a new web browser that functions somewhat as a social networking desktop client and brings the goodies of Facebook and other Web sites all into one place. Rockmelt takes advantage of the fact that social networking and computer applications control a huge part of the way we used the Internet. On the browser, one can access their Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking accounts. It also integrates the search power of Google and lets users search for almost anything without using the search engines.
Rockmelt is a pseudo-social networking forum. It gives you greater power to add friends to your Facebook account and chat with those online – this feature is displayed on the left side of the browser. Your friends can drop you a line and you can reply on their wall. You can also tell if someone is online and chat with them.
This browser takes the shine away from your usual messenger. You can also share stories you discover online, instantly, using the Rockmelt interface. While Rockmelt can be described as a desktop client for Facebook, its threat to Google and Yahoo is worth much more than that.
So many prominent names have been tied to the project. Among them is the co-founder of Netscape, Marc Andreessen. Although no signs of a clear involvement of Marc Andreeseen in the Rockmelt project, software engineers from the company he sold to HP, Opsware, are said to be behind the "engineering". Currently, Rockmelt is only available for a test drive. To participate, you must connect via Facebook from rockmelt.com homepage and then wait for your invitation.
