Rockmelt the melding of browsing and social networking!




For the past week their has been a new browser available that promises to revolutionize the way a significant number of people view the web-as well as -social networking sights that browser is Rockmelt.

Backed by the creator of Netscape,Marc Andreesen,Rockmelt is the brain child of two plucky entrepreneurs Tom Howe and Eric Vishria.

According to Rockmelt's blog... 
"RockMelt does more than just navigate Web pages. It makes it easy for you to do the things you do every single day on the Web: share and keep up with your friends, stay up-to-date on news and information, and search. And of course, RockMelt is fast, secure, and stable because it’s built on Chromium, the open source project behind Google’s Chrome browser. It’s your browser – re-imagined and built for how you use the Web."  

and the experience of this blogger  is that it delivers quite well on this promise. Given that fact that Rockmelt is still in beta form -from the perspective of this very thrilled user-it does a wonderful job of melding the social networking power of facebook and twitter into a totally new web browsing experience

The two greatest attributes of-Rockmelt are what are called edges-one on the left the on the right-that bring together your favorite RSS feeds on the right and your favorite facebook friends on the left. Now one can see what your friends are face booking about-as well as tweeting- and never leave the page you're working on.

There are also other features-too numerous to mention in this post- that make this new kid on the block worth checking out. However -in the humble opinion of this blogger- if you are a regular user of facebook and twitter and do a lot of research and work on the web you will not be disappointed in Rockmelt. In fact I like it so well it has become my browser of choice for posting my blog,as well as,surfing the web.

Indeed Rockmelt is the melding of browser and social network into a whole new animal the "social browser"!!
