RockMelt: a new browser that promises to search, share, and stay in touch with ease.
There’s a new browser in town, RockMelt, and for now, it is available
on a limited beta release. Meant to serve up the internet to users "the
way people use the web today”, RockMelt focuses more on its interface
than on pure performance, with "friends, feeds, and sharing” at its
core. However, while it doesn’t hope to be the fastest browser around,
you can be sure that it’s no slouch, as it built on top of the Google
Chrome open source code (Chromium).
RockMelt intends to be the one browser that will allow people to "share
easily”, "search faster”, "connect with friends”, and "keep up on the
news”, using its native interface advantageously. The entire browser is
targeted towards audiences who use Facebook and Google on a regular
basis, and let’s face it, that’s quite a large number.
Here’s what RockMelt’s founder and CEO, Eric Vishria, thinks about his
company’s efforts: "Today's Web users need a browser that does more
than just navigate pages. RockMelt helps people do the things they do
every single day – keep up with their friends, share, get updates, and
search. We are very excited to begin offering early access to the
RockMelt beta as we begin the race to our first million users."
