    New browser might be a social networking tool.
    [​IMG][​IMG]Zoom
    The modern day web experience all started with Netscape 15 years ago. Since then, Netscape has fallen due to Microsoft's aggressive hand with Internet Explorer, but in its place have been alternatives such as Firefox.
    Netscape's original father, Marc Andreessen is making another stab that changing the web market again with the secret development of another web browser.
    Andreessen is backing a start up company called RockMelt. Little is known about the company and its products at this time, but the New York Times reports that a now-removed privacy policy on the RockMelt webpage indicated that there would be some link to Facebook.
    This leads some to believe that the RockMelt browser would tie in closely with social networks.

    Just installed Firefox 3.7 alpha 1
    results while running peacekeeper benchmark :-

    Firefox 3.5.2 = 1948
    Firefox 3.7a1 = 3163
    Chrome 3.0 = 3595
    Safari 4 = 4011
    Opera 10 beta 3 = 2152
    Midori = 3189 (based on Webkit)
    IE8 = 943.

    I should think that Microsoft should abandon IE 8 :D

    Will see what this Rockmelt has to offer...

    I think, all the users are MS bashers. So you earn money by that?
