Readies for a heavy marketing.
RockMelt, the social web browser, which is yet to become a success, has received a $30 million funding from the new investors.
LA Times reports that the new investors, Accel Partners and Khosla Ventures, have teamed up with Andreessen Horowitz to lead a round of funding.
What makes it interesting is the fact that two of the RockMelt investors, Marc Andreessen and Jim Breyer, are already on the board of Facebook, creating a stronger bond between companies.
As far as the investment goes, RockMelt’s co-founder said that the money will be used to expand the 40 person team, push some new features and spread the word.
As of today, RockMelt has now raised a total of $40 million in funding.
