RockMelt becomes 'the Facebook browser' with Beta 3 release

RockMelt Beta 3

Chromium-based "social" Web browser RockMelt on Tuesday received an update to Beta 3, which adds about 30 new features and a tighter integration with Facebook which comes as a result of working directly with the popular social network.

"Our goal is to build a browser that makes surfing the web better, easier, and more fun. We couldn't be more excited to work with Facebook to make social a core browser component and to continue the browser revolution," the RockMelt blog said today.

Naturally, most of the updates with this beta focus on integrating RockMelt with Facebook. The Friend Request, Message, and Notification icons that you find across the top of the Web-based Facebook page have been built directly into the browser, chats that open in the Web-based Facebook can now pop out in dedicated RockMelt chat windows, and there is a new Facebook app and photo album viewer to boot.

RockMelt's unified buddy list feature, known as the "Friend Edge," has gotten a major overhaul with this release, and can now be expanded or collapsed, scrolled, repositioned, customized via drag and drop, and searched through.
