Rockmelt – the new social web browser has been in private beta since November. Private that is, until tonight, when they announced the browser is now available in open beta. Woohoo! Eager to get my hands on it, I immediately ran over to their site and downloaded it. You can download it here.
While it is downloading, I will share some additional information about the new browser. Rockmelt was developed by Marc Andressen who also developed Netscape. The browser is built on Google Chrome and is very Facebook – centric. If you are not a big Facebok fan, you most probably definitely won’t like Rockmelt as its social elements are powered by a Facebook app. It also has nifty Twitter integration and cool RSS feed features.
Okay – it is done downloading – let me walk you through my first experience with Rockmelt:
