Dubbed the “Browse for Facebook”, RockMelt is making a big splash. The new browser includes family social features – especially Facebook – and, of course, plans to reinvent how people use the Internet.
But we have not been here before?
Built on Google Chrome, RockMelt seems on the rise in others – namely, Flock – have failed to take off.
As an interface, RockMelt wins Flock, which went from Firefox to Chrome for four months. With a few ornaments on a small scale RockMelt moreorless stays true to Chrome.
But the integration of Facebook, with a panel on the left of “top friends” will undoubtedly prove aggravating updates – comments, wall posts, and the like – are channeled through the browser, it appears as a yellow stain Orange is always new content available. Just as the right side panel with RSS feeds, content where you can drag and drop to share with Facebook friends.
The search box – why do you need a search box? – Load also results in a drop down menu, saving about 0.3 seconds from the search facility. Not everyone’s taste. More of Daring Fireball, John Gruber says: “It resolved the problem of Chrome has a nice, simple interface and minimalist.”
RockMelt is perhaps best position to promote social navigation where others have failed. His main investor, Andreessen Horowitz, is jointly run by Marc Andreessen, co-founder of Netscape Communications. His co-founder, Tim Howes, also figured in the great battle of Netscape Navigator and Microsoft. Browsers have seen come and go.
While we wait for our beta application for approval, has jumped to RockMelt yet? Tell us in comments. Yeah, I mean, his attention is kept at rest for long enough.
