The new RockMelt browser is suddenly getting a lot of buzz, all of it deserved. Based on Google's open-source Chromium browser technology, RockMelt adds in some welcome social-networking integration. Instantly see which of your Facebook friends are online--their thumbnails appear on RockMelt's left edge. On the right edge, click handy icons to instantly see your latest Twitter and Facebook status updates. And the clever new web search function unfurls its results in a mini-window that doesn't interfere with the page you're already reading.
RockMelt is available for Windows and Mac computers under a closed beta. Ask very nicely and they might let you have a peek.
