RockMelt only works if you have a Facebook account.

Therefore, its value to me is precisely ZERO.

Thanks anyway ...

That limits his market considerably. What about the millions of people who choose not to relinquish their privacy to a jerk like Mark Zuckerberg?

The basic idea for his browser sounds good. But wouldn't it be a better business decision to make it more flexible, by allowing the user to select which sites he wants the browser to be anchored to?

I don’t do FB. I guess I won’t be doing RockMelt either. So be it!

Well, good luck with all that. I don’t facebook, I don’t tweeter, and I don’t use google.

Um, yeah....no. Now if these propeller-heads wanted to do some GOOD, they could write a FR-optimized browser, but this thing...not so much.

the premise that most online activity today revolves around socializing on Facebook, searching on Google, tweeting

Uh, I guess I'll stay with Camino as I don't Twitter, I use Yippy searh and the only reason I have a FB account is because my daughter set it up...

Looks like a Chrome Browser with special tabs and side links. I know a couple of coders who could replicate the thing in a few hours. For beer money.

Maybe there is more to the final product but from what I have seen the goal is to get eyeballs on the thing. Which, of course, means that it is worth something financially at some point because lots of people are looking at it. That makes no sense but what the heck....

Indeed. I believe their mantra is, "there's a plugin for that!"

How’s this for a marketing slogan:

“You have too much freedom, back into the Prodigy sandbox* for you!”

* Prodigy sandbox upgraded to Facebook sandbox is some locales.

It’s like the Jitterbug cell phone of web browsers!

Firefox now offers the F1 addon. Its cool. When you view a webpage after you hit the speakbox icon, select the social network and friends you want to send the webpage to. It makes sharing web content a snap!
