    I like Rockmelt but it gets pretty irritating after a while when every single thing pops up as a notification.  I know there’s a quiet mode but what’s the point of that browser if you use quiet mode?  Hmmmm…

    I think, RockMelt can develop these social feature as plugin for all leading browsers like IE, Firefox , Chrome, Safari & Opera – instead of developing a separate browser and add to the crowd. I’m not attracted to this browser need, may be in the school this famous.
