RockMelt:Exactly what a browser should be

|

A new browser is changing the way people surf the Web and share information.

RockMelt, which requires those interested to request an invitation, allows users to share websites with friends instantly through Facebook and Twitter — while monitoring other sites through linked RSS feeds.

The specialty browser, which is integrated with Facebook and requires folks to sign into Facebook to use, allows users to monitor which friends are online and chat with them while surfing the web.

The browser will be particularly useful to folks who enjoys regularly sharing information with their friends. RockMelt allows people to simply drag and drop content to the two vertical sidebars docked on both sides of users’ screen. Suggested information is already filled in. It’s as innovative as it is simple.

Give it a try. You won’t regret it.
