First Week with RockMelt Social Browser
There are a lot of different ways that you can experience the social web, but I’ve got to say (and I’m sure you’ll agree), most of them don’t really work like we’d want them to. In the last year I’ve tried dozens of services and software, changed my perspective and approach to different tools, dropped email, facebook, twitter and others more than once to see if it would simplify my life and have read hundreds of articles to learn from the experiences of others.
I know what the solution for me would be… I just haven’t found a service or piece of software that provides that solution.
Earlier last week, though, I downloaded Chromium based RockMelt, the Social Browser and so far it has been an enlightening experience, to say the least. Thanks to Joomla Adicto I was able to get into the invite-only beta (I have three left, by the way *cough*), and while I haven’t made up my mind yet whether this is what I’ve been looking for in the last year, it does seem to come pretty close.
I’m gonna give it a few more weeks of exclusive use at work and home, and I’ll write the full review for you when I’ve made my decision. So far, I like it… a lot. But I don’t want to jinx anything or give approval before I get a full understanding of the browser.
