The internet is a wonderful thing. Social Networks is a beautiful way to spread awareness of cool stuff, communicating new thoughts, concepts, ideas and products out to the rest of the world. Well to atleast a good sizable part of the population. Take for example how I got to know about Rockmelt.
Rockmelt is a new social media browser developed by Tim Howes and Eric Vishria and backed by Netscape founder Marc Andreessen. It’s also based on the open source web browser Chromium, which is also the base for Google Chrome. I first heard that a new browser was in the market about 2 hours ago. Apparently an early access version of the software was published on the 8th of this month but I did not know. Someone told me about the browser and sent me a link to their website. I applied online – you have to connect to their Facebook account to get an invite for downloading it and was told that they would send me an invite.
But 2 hours later a cousin of mine, who had already received his invite, downloaded and installed the browser sent me an invite for Rockmelt. I clicked on the link and downloaded the browser. As of now it’s still installing, it’s taking a long time, but I’m happy to take a look at it and recommend it if it’s good.
