if necessity is the mother of invention, what's the mother of innovation? selection?

well, dear readers, it seems that the selection of internet browser options is widening again. new on the scene is something called RockMelt, a browser that steps away from the traditional Internet Explorer-Firefox-Opera format. RockMelt was created, in part, by some of the people who worked on Netscape back in the 90s, but don't think that this is just a re-make of Netscape. It's a whole new animal, by far. It is built on the idea that people go to the internet mainly for social networking, Googling, and a few favorite websites. Those areas are set to drop down windows and panes.

to even utilize RockMelt, you must have a Facebook account. you can then link up your twitter, have your favorite websites listed, etc. its more of a one-stop for your social media and browsing, than the traditional browser, or even tabbed browsing.

another thing: RockMelt is available by invitation only. want to be the cutting-edge geek of your peer-group? you can go and request an invite at
