RockMelt Beta 4 Coming Soon, New Reading Experience

By | September 26, 2011

RockMelt Beta 4 is to be released sometime in the next few weeks and will bring with it several new features, one of which being called Social Reading.

RockMelt is one of the first companies to launch Facebook integration to make reading news more social. By building social right into the App Edge and browsing experience, Social Reading lets you connect around reading online like never before.

With Social Reading enabled in RockMelt, users can:

  • Discover what friends are reading
  • See what’s popular and trending online
  • Help friends find new content by sharing what you’re reading

Social Reading will initially be available for some of the most popular sites, including CNN, ESPN, Fail Blog, Gizmodo, and others. Users are in control of how activity is shared and who can view it.

    Yes I suppose users of a social browser like Rockmelt would be more interested in absurdly overpriced hand bags than the more sensible members of society. 
    Thats the way to go targeted adds.

    RockMelt would be a good fit for many friends I know.

    I really like the app bar/edge whatever which can contain rss feeds. IMHO that is a great feature! The other edge/bar can be hidden so you can just keep the “cool” one!

    Too bad I’m on linux and the makers are using a half-baked excuse to not port it (native code)
