RockMelt: The Test Drive Continues

I’ve spent more time with RockMelt and I’ve essentially decided that it is my default browser.  First, it’s easy to use.  Second, it’s clean and fast.  And third, it’s terribly user friendly.  Modifications are simple and self evident.

I’m also quite pleased that I’m allowed to download the browser for both my laptop (my workhorse computer) and my netbook (my travel machine).  Indeed, I simply had to visit on my netbook, connect via Facebook, and voile,  the site offered me the opportunity of downloading to the travel machine.  I had feared that I would only be permitted one Beta Test download but that’s not the case at all.  I imagine that I could download it to more machines if I needed to or to a new machine altogether were that to become necessary.

By the way, while some seem to think that RockMelt is simply a new Facebook and Twitter interface, it is in fact an honest to goodness fully functional browser with all the tools every browser has yet without the freezing and crashing of IE and the slowness of Firefox.

    Have you been able to get the feeder to work in the sidebar? I cannot get it to update although the twitter and Facebook feed work perfectly. Is their more to it than simply adding the link so that their is a button on the left? If I can get this to work I will have just been converted!

    Thanks for any help,
