The recently released beta 2 of the RockMelt browser adds features for working with social networks. These include improved integration with Facebook chat and better overall support for Twitter. RockMelt has also a very useful View Later feature that makes it very simple to mark Web content for later viewing, essentially a superior form of short-term bookmarking. Because it is based on Google Chrome, RockMelt has strong standards support and very good performance, making it a good everyday browser and an excellent choice for those who are heavy Facebook users.
When you first launch RockMelt, it asks for your Facebook login. Once it starts, it automatically logs into Facebook and integrates the social media site's information directly into the browser interface. This includes a list of Facebook friends (shown with small image thumbnails) that runs down the left-hand side of the browser window. Clicking on a friend's thumbnail displays that person's most recent status and provides the option to chat with or post on that person's wall. When viewing websites from within RockMelt, a user can easily choose to share the page by clicking the share button next to the address bar.
