Tech: New browser startup Rockmelt lies to us right off the bat

  • Yeah yeah, Toby… You think you’ll be able to charm us into downloading a copy of the Rockmelt beta by talking about your apartment above a bar with turtle racing … but we have a secret for you guys. Moorhead’s Scottish Pub doesn’t exist! We don’t care if Marc Andreessen managed to get a bunch of the old Netscape gang back together for this one. Or that you’re based off of Chromium. Or that you’re not as cluttered as that other browser with the same idea, Flock. You lied to us, and we don’t know what to believe anymore. TO-BY. source

Since Netscape lost the plot, Andreessen has become one of Silicon Valley’s most respected venture capitalists. So even though this is just an e-mail box, we’re definitely really curious.source

  • Marc Andreessen • The guy behind NCSA Mosaic, Netscape and Ning, talking about how newspapers should stop killing dead trees on Charlie Rose. Clearly, he’s optimistic. • source
