RockMelt, the social browser that was launched last year has incredible features that combines browsing and sharing functionality in one single window. With tight integration with popular social sites including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and the ability to read your RSS feeds all from within the browser window, RockMelt definitely stands apart from other browsers. Since the launch of the popular browser, the RockMelt team has made several new upgrades to RockMelt to make the social experience better then before.

No More App Search

More Browsing Space
The edges have become thinner leaving more space to browse your favorite sites.
Chromium 14 Upgrades Included
All the enhancements from the latest stable version of Chromium are part of the current RockMelt upgrade, so faster and smoother browsing is now possible.
What’s in the Pipeline
Social Reading is expected to help you discover what your friends are reading, see what’s popular and trending online, and help friends find new content by sharing what you’re reading from popular sites like CNN, ESPN, Gizmodo among others. This feature is expected to roll out soon so stay tuned.
RockMelt has been constantly striving towards making browsing a true social experience and it’s obvious to see that they’re doing a real good job of it.
