Thread: RockMelt new browser?

    RockMelt new browser?

    A new browser startup called RockMelt may be entering the browser market.

    Marc Andreessen, founder of Netscape, is reportedly backing a startup called RockMelt that is throwing its hat into the increasingly crowded ring of the browser wars. Little is known about RockMelt at this point aside from rumor and innuendo. The idea, supposedly, is to build a new browser from the ground up rather than just re-engineering the existing browser engine model. It sounds like a daunting undertaking which leads me to wonder- why? If RockMelt ends up being the greatest web browser ever built and is victorious in the browser market share war, what exactly does it win?

    Personally I think there is no need for another browser. Why to make new one when we have perfect one. Opera!

    I use IE7. Safari is good. For some reason I don't like Firefox or Opera. Anybody using Chrome?

    I usually use firefox but i had a good experience with opera as it is simply faster to browse and i agree that we don't want new browsers!

    FF is getting slower each day, but there's no real replacement for it 'cause of all the plugins I have installed, in any case I'm loosing my patience.

    I also use firefox because of many plugins that could be added to it. I'm also using google chrome.

  7. I use Firefox just because there's so many plugins and themes for it, sometimes I use Google Chrome when I need to test a site out or something like that!

    It's going to be tough for a new browser to enter the market at this stage, but if they used less RAM than the other browsers (I'm looking at you Firefox!) then that could be their selling point...
