Watch a billion dollars come online overnight
By Dave Winer on Sunday, November 07, 2010 at 5:03 PM.

A picture named bigbuck.gifA new browser, Rockmelt, launched in the last hour, and you can tell right off the bat if the software is anywhere near competent, and there's no reason why it shouldn't be (that's not the same thing as "is") that it's a winner. permalink

Even though there are other ways to slice it, and maybe there isn't even that much demand for what it does. permalink

No matter. It's going to get an installed base (with the caveat above about competence) and with an installed base comes momentum and value, and there won't be any shortage of money. They're rich overnight. permalink

There should have been more high-level browsers. permalink

And there should have been a browser with identity built in. permalink

This browser is both high-level and understands identity. permalink

But it's not a river! It's a hunt and peck style aggregator.  permalink

Okay, let's do the river. :-) permalink
