Battle of the Social Browser
When Rockmelt launched a few weeks ago, everyone started talking about social browsers again. Trialling Flock a few years ago, I loved the concept, but found the reality impractical. This time, however, it might be worth taking another look: both browsers are now based on Chromium, and Flock’s latest update directly challenges its upstart rival. Now that social networking has reached critical mass, a little healthy competition may be the key to developing the ideal social browser. Try them both, and see which you prefer.
TRON: Legacy Facebook App
Ahead of the launch of TRON: Legacy this December, there are plenty of things going on to build up the hype. You can see a light show on the exterior of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, along with a recreation of Flynn’s arcade. If you can’t make it to the Southbank, you can still play a starring role in the film’s trailer: just visit the Facebook app, upload a passport style photo, and watch your own customized movie.
