RockMelt social browser debuts an iPad app
The social media answer to a traditional browser launches an iPad app that lets users curate their newsfeeds and add "lol," "want," and "aww" to media and news stories.
RockMelt has redesigned its social browser to optimize it for the iPad.
It's been awhile since RockMelt has made the news, but that doesn't mean its stopped working on new items and features. It also launched an iPhone app earlier this year, according to Engadget.
For those who don't know about RockMelt, it's a browser that launched in 2010 and remains in beta. It was created by Tim Howes and Eric Vishria and one of its backers is the king of venture capital Marc Andreessen who co-founded Netscape.
Instead of being all inclusive like other browsers, such as Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, Rockmelt emphasizes social features -- especially ones relating to Facebook. Users can update their Facebook status and Tweet, and chat with their friends all via the social browser.
According to Engadget, RockMelt is also working on more versions of its browser for other platforms.
