Browser Review: RockMelt Vs. Flock - Page 2
The only thing I don’t like about this browser is that upon importing all your information, I found my Bookmarks and the like to be a little… screwy. But hey nothing is perfect, especially if it is Internet related!
Next is my favorite browser. Obviously you can tell which one I like most already, and which one essentially “Wins” in this article. RockMelt is another Chromium powered browser. It has recently entered its public Beta stage. All you have to do is connect your Facebook profile via the RockMelt website, then wait to receive a Beta invite within the next few days. Most people seem to get it within 42 hours.
Then once you get the Beta invite, there is the standard Chromium browser set-up. Then here comes the catch, you pretty much have to give RockMelt supreme control of you’re Facebook. Admittedly I did think twice before hitting the approve button. Overall the RockMelt browser shares a lot in common with Flocks design, Menu, and User Interface.
There are a few UI problems, for example your social stream (Called EDGE) can disappear and become unavailable from time to time. The Twitter feed goes dead and at times can be completely useless. But all this comes down to is that it's a Beta program and still and has a lot of room to grow, improve - and has serious potential.
At the end for the day, I would suggest both of these browsers to anyone involved in the social media world, of the internet.
I give Flock a 3.5 out of 5, for a very original idea, and great features, that kept me browsing.
I give RockMelt a 4 out of 5, for a slim design, great integration and customization.
