One of the founders of Netscape, Marc Andreessen, is backing a new social browser called RockMelt. It’s based off of the Chromium code and aims to add more social functionality than other other browsers. This has already been done with a browser called Flock which is also based on Chromium, but I’d put my money on Andreessen staying with this venture for the long haul.
As he said recently, “We think it is a fantastic time to build a company around a browser.”
Do you think that’s true in 2010? Decide for yourself by getting an early invitation to RockMelt.
