A recent piece by The New York Times discusses RockMelt, a social web browser developed by former Netscape employees. In a crowded browser market, what makes this one different? RockMelt features two rails with icons to the side of its main window – one rail features a user’s friends, while the second displays a user’s favorite social sites, including Twitter and Facebook. A ‘share’ button allows users to directly post a web page, video or other content to their social networking profiles, and allows for integrated status updates and contact with ‘friends’. When a user searches the Web using Google, RockMelt will deliver Google’s results, as well as pages associated with those results.
