The New Social Browser, RockMelt Is Out For Public

There is nothing wrong, if we call this age as social networking age, as everyone is so engaged with social media and social networking sites, that they just can't live without being connected to social networking sites, either in office or at home or wherever and whenever.

There was a time, when the most hyped social browser "Flock" was a favorite for many internet savvy users. Now there is one more addition to the social browser category, which is named as RockMelt.

Check the below note from the developer 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.
RockMelt is backed by Netscape founder Marc Andreessen and has entered a private beta this week. As per the review from various internet sources, it seems to live in the cloud and uses Facebook authentication to synchronize a user's browsing experience across machines. Your settings, bookmarks, etc., are all backed up online.

There is a good news for all the Google Chrome users; RockMelt is built on the open source project Chromium. If you are a Chrome user, you will notice three biggest changes in RockMelt, as it is built around friends, feeds, and search results. The left sidebar is for your Facebook friends and the green dot on the images denotes that your friend is currently online and the right one is for sites and search is in the top rail.

RockMelt has the look and feel of Google Chrome and the address bar which is also a search bar, and this helps the searches faster and the Share Button just works smoothly without leaving the browser window.

RockMelt is still in private beta and invitation only. Just go to RockMelt.com and connect with your Facebook account to get an invitation. Check out their video demo below:


Till you get an invitation for private beta, try F1 from Mozilla labs on your Firefox. F1 is said to be a social networking add-on for Firefox.
