Introducing RockMelt

"A startup called RockMelt on Sunday launched the beta version of an entirely new type of Web browser with an impeccable pedigree." The Daily Beast reports.

RockMelt’s browser works differently from Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. It is more than just an application on a PC or Mac. For one thing, it presumes users are on Facebook and offers a number of features to simplify the Facebook experience. Integrated with the app is an online service, or what is trendily known as a "cloud." RockMelt also applies several techniques to update favorite sites faster and to give more thorough search results from Google. In many ways RockMelt acts like an iPad application—self-contained and self-updating, but on a PC. And like most good Internet breakthroughs these days, it’s free.
