Marc Andreessen, a top Silicon-Valley venture capitalist who developed the Netscape browser almost 17 years ago, is expected to unveil another social media internet browser (RockMelt) today on Monday 8th November, 2010 that would apparently let more than 2 billion people to connect with friends through some popular social networking services as they surf the World Wide Web.
RockMelt, the somewhat innovative kind of browser, has the ability to keep tags on your most liked websites. According to Andreessen, RockMelt not only alerts you when new content pops up on your favorite websites, but at the same time makes it easier to turn over through search results as well.
In order to give the same good browsing experience to users every time they try to browse through RockMelt, a log in (personal account on the homepage just like the iGoogle) facility has also been added on this new browser.
RockMelt is fabricated with more social capabilities than any other browser and most likely that is why the innovative team working behind RockMelt is very much optimistic about their new browser’s capabilities to set free a new wave of innovation that would intensify the price war in the existing market.
Marc Andreessen said “the market is ripe for new ideas and better products but what is more exciting and pushing about this field that is how dynamic the market has become. More than 500 million users have changed browsers in the last three years. Back when I was working on the browser (RockMelt), there weren’t that many people on the Internet”.
