The new RockMelt isn’t molten lava or a toasted cheesy hoagie.
It is the ingenious new web browser that incorporates social feeds, quick search and instant friend access, making our busy online lives into a desktop.
In short, the right hand side has a panel with a column of icons, such as Facebook, Twitter and any other news sites or blogs. This provides a quick view of news feeds, tweets, latest blog posts, breaking news, etc.
On the left panel are your friends automatically imported from Facebook, allowing for advanced chat and multimedia sharing as well as status updates. See who is online and add favorites to talk to people you actually care about. That’s my style!
Search is made oh-so-easy with a drop-down result box that allows you to click through to view the main site. No more going back and forth to the results page to find what you want!
The RockMelt browser is innovative and clean. Built on Chromium, the foundation for Google’s Chrome browser, the browser is fast, secure and stable. The beta version was released just Monday, so there are a few kinks to be withstood, but it’s worth it to test drive the new technology.
So how do I get to test it, you ask? Go to www.rockmelt.com, sign up for an invitation and wait for someone (most likely a friend already using the browser) to grant you access. Pay it forward!
I’m currently exploring, and hence have left out many features. For further reading, check out:
