Which Social Browser Do You Use?

Marques recently did a screencast to talk about the new RockMelt browser. This week, he’s showing off another social browser alternative – the newest version of Flock.

Flock pulls all of your favorite people, places and content together in a convenient view and delivers a more personal experience of the web, where its users are more easily connected to what’s important to them.

There are many improvements over the last Flock version, including:

  • chrome 5 merge (many crash fixes, better extension handling, improved performance)
  • more HTML5 support (Geolocation APIs, App Cache, web sockets, and file drag-and-drop, improved crash handling)
  • expanded favorites management (bulk delete, tagging, public/private)
  • foreign characters can be used in tags, user names and Explore searches
  • increased performance and stability of Groups page
  • editable retweets (by default RTs are ‘new’ style, but as soon as you drop your cursor in and edit they become ‘old school’ RTs)

Are you using a social browser? Which one do you prefer – and why?

How Will RockMelt Change the Way You Browse?

Marques is back with another screencast. This time, he’s taking a close look at the hot new RockMelt browser. If you’re a social media addict who cannot get enough of your Facebook and Twitter streams, you’re going to want to pay close attention.

RockMelt takes a whole new approach to sharing within a web browser. You’ll be asked to log in with your Facebook and Twitter accounts during setup. There are places to share photos, videos and links quickly and easily. You have a place to update your status without having to use a third-party application or having to head to either Facebook or Twitter.

Read the updates and check out the media that all of your friends are sending. You can stay on whatever website you’re currently reading and still take the time to pay attention to the friends and family who matter most to you.

Sharing hot news stories is simple. While you have any web page open, simply click the share button and tell RockMelt which of your social sites you want the link sent to. Add a short message of your own to explain the link and you’re done. There’s nothing to copy and paste… there’s nothing to log into.

If you’re a social media addict, this may just be the browser for you. It’s fast as heck, being based on the Chromium build. RockMelt receives a perfect 100 out of 100 on the Acid 3 test! It’s available for any platform you may be on, and is simple to use.

Thanks, Marques, for an excellent screencast.
