Forget Firefox, chrome or safari; rising from the ashes of Netscape, Marc Andreessen is backing a brand new web browser called RockMelt, which is set out to revolutionize all browsers. It’s all about connections and social media, bringing together all your online profiles, making sharing your content that much easier and bringing together all of your favorite websites. Basically it’s set out to bring everything together, turn your web browser into something that can do more than just navigate the web – bridging the gap between the cloud and computers. It’s already got me interested.
What does RockMelt offer over others?
RockMeltis all about bringing everything together. Not recreating the web, but rather making everything accessible in one easy package. Here’s what you should expect from this new browser:
- Real time updates built directly into the web browser – news, sport etc.
- Web applications that can be opened and run directly through the web browser.
- Direct access to social media, facebook, twitter, email, messenger – all built internally.
- Dynamic homepages that support the content that you want, Live streams, updates etc.
A Social Web browser : RockMeIt
Rockmelt’s method of navigation will eventually take over the way you navigate the web. The whole browser is built socially. The sides of the browser show who else is online with you and provides a direct layer of communication. No more need of accessing facebook directly, you can do it all from within the browser. Got an rss feed reader? You won’t need it much longer because Rockmelt can do that all itself. This browser really is the cloud, tying in even web apps to your browsing experience, something to love about this new web browser.
What to expect from this baby web browser:
I seriously can imagine this web browser becoming the cloud. It ties in everything, including web apps. It’s built on the chromium project so I picture more than just ‘plug-in’s’ coming out of this; people will soon be developing whole applications to go with the browser. Best of luck to this new project – because I’m already loving it. If you want to try out the software, barely even in alpha stage, you can head over to the rockmelt website and apply for an invitation. You will need to sign in with Facebook though, invitations take a few days. Latest version of RockMeit, comes with Social reading which is deeply integrated with Facebook. Over all, for a Blogger this social web browser might be the best thing to stay updated with latest news and for Facebook freak, again it’s very useful and handy browser. RockMeIt browser is also available for iPhone which you can download from here.
