PowerPoint Presentation: RockMelt  is a social media web browser developed by  Tim Howes  and Eric Vishria and backed by Netscape founder  Marc Andreessen .  An early access version of the browser is published on November 8, 2010 . RockMelt is based on  Chromium- the open source project behind Google’s browser. http://6268.org.ru/uploadfiles/6268orgru-1287385553/behold-rockmelt-browser-for-the-social-nbsp-set_1.jpg PowerPoint Presentation: RockMelt, a new browser that lives in the cloud and uses Facebook authentication to synchronize a user’s browsing experience across machines. http://www.technama.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/rockmelt-browser.jpg PowerPoint Presentation: http://www.crunchbase.com/assets/images/original/0005/6419/56419v1.png Using  Facebook  for authentication, your user environment can be replicated anywhere RockMelt is installed. And really, that’s what RockMelt is all about: The user environment. PowerPoint Presentation: What makes RockMelt different from other browsers is its melding of two white-hot technology trends -- social networking and apps that work with the Internet but off the World Wide Web. http://www.insidefacebook.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Welcome-to-RockMelt.png PowerPoint Presentation: RockMelt, which is currently in beta and only runs in Windows, looks very much like Google Chrome, on which it's based. The major differences are columns running down each side of the browser. http://googlewatch.eweek.com/RockMelt%20Tour.png PowerPoint Presentation: The left bar displays thumbnails of your Facebook friends who are online. There's also an "all friends" button there. With it, you can view a complete list of your friends, search through it and create a list of your favorite friends. As the contact is listed on the left bar, you’ll be able to quickly initiate Facebook chats with them or post content to their Facebook walls. PowerPoint Presentation: Simply it allows you to update your status on your social networks. You can tell your Facebook friends "what's on your mind" or send a tweet to your Twitter followers. http://www.rev2.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/rockmelt-share.jpg PowerPoint Presentation: Straddling the right side is your bookmarks — and here’s another area where RockMelt’s cloud is put to clever use. Bookmarks are updated from the cloud, so content is cached and waiting for you when you log on. Also add feeds from websites of interest to you. PowerPoint Presentation: Feeds can be added to the bar with a couple of clicks. You go to the site where the feed originates. Click the add button. Then click Current Site to add the site to your feed list. You can also add feeds manually. http://images.maketecheasier.com/2010/11/rockmelt-connected-sites.png PowerPoint Presentation: In addition, you can turn on a live alert feature in the browser. It will flash messages on the Windows taskbar when something is posted to your Facebook wall or your news feeds, added to your tweet stream or created in a feed that you're following. http://media.tested.com/uploads/0/5/16293-rockmelt_twitter_super.jpg PowerPoint Presentation: RockMelt also adds a useful twist to searching from the browser bar: When you enter a search term, the search results appear in a popup window. You can review the results in the window or view them on a page with a click. http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/2010/11/17/technology/personaltech/17gw-rockmelt/17gw-rockmelt-blog480.jpg PowerPoint Presentation: The popup listing allows you to look at the results of a search without losing sight of the page that sparked the search in the first place. http://blog.alert-info.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/rockmelt-web-browser.png PowerPoint Presentation: http://www.siliconrepublic.com/fs/img/news/201011/rockmelt.jpg All in all, RockMelt is an interesting twist on the browsing experience. PowerPoint Presentation: Another interesting addition that RockMelt makes to the Chrome interface is the addition of a share button. It allows you to immediately share a Web page address with your social networking sites. http://www.browsermedia.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/rockmelt-5.jpg Future of Web Browsing : Future of Web Browsing One problem with switching to a new browser is all the stuff you've added to the old browser has to be added to the new one . RockMelt took the wrinkles out of that process by automatically importing items, such as bookmarks and the bookmark toolbar, from my default browser, Firefox . As much as I like that feature, I disliked the program ransacking data on my default browser without first asking my permission to do so. PowerPoint Presentation: To keep RockMelt's tool area clean, most of its tools and menus are stored in a popup menu that can be accessed by a single button located at the left corner of its interface. From that menu, you can do things like create new tables and windows; cut, copy and paste text; hide or show the social networking and feed "edge" bars; and manage bookmarks. http://www.05news.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/RockMelt.jpg PowerPoint Presentation: You can also launch an "incognito" window from the menu. Means when you browse the Web in an incognito window, pages viewed in it won't appear in your browser history and cookies, for example -- will disappear after you quit the window. http://www.hacktrix.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/open-chrome-incognito-window.gif , http://explodingpixels.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/incognito_window2.png PowerPoint Presentation: It isn't easy for any newcomer browser to get the kind of traction necessary to compete with established players like Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. But RockMelt now in beta and based on Google's Chrome, could very well be a contender http://techcocktail.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/RockMelt-Overview.gif PowerPoint Presentation: The social elements of the RockMelt browser make it a compelling and streamlined online interaction process. http://www.blogcdn.com/www.switched.com/media/2010/11/rockmelt.jpg PowerPoint Presentation: Anyone interested in the future of Web browsing will want to take a peek at RockMelt. http://cdn.churchcrunch.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/rockmelt-thanks-620x431.png Reference from - http://www.technewsworld.com/story/71218.html?wlc=1290165913&wlc=1290405730 http://mashable.com/2010/11/07/rockmelt-beta/
