    I think i'll pass on that one. The worlds starting to get a bit controlled by social networking...

    I'm praying we come out the other end of the tunnel at some point. I feel like the web is drowning under the Facebook deluge.

    I agree with you guys, i dont mind social networking as it has its place and i even use facebook but now its becoming very irritating where everything is marketed for social networking, phones are now being marketed just for social things (I guess it makes sense but still, id rather just a phone or a proper smart phone not a half assed device)


    Cant wait for the market to move onto the next craze

    "Starting today, we're offering access to an early version of RockMelt, a new browser designed around you and how you use the Web."

    Sounds like pretty standard marketing dribble so far
    ... is a pretty good summary of my opinion on this.

    Given I'm studiously avoiding Facebook, this latest thing offers me exactly nothing that I can't do with Firefox/Chrome/IE. Why do we need yet another web browser, when some Facebook add-on for the existing browsers makes a lot more sense?

    Bah, humbug!

    Seems to me like a browser for complete social network addicts. It's getting really unhealthy how long people spend on these sites, I really think a browser like this is going to cause problems for some people. Facebook Rehab centres will be popping up all over the place...
