Yep, it doesn't seem to do anything you couldn't easily do with a
firefox plugin or two. If any of it's features turn out to be a big hit
I'm fairly certain all the mainstream browsers will appropriate them
before rockmelt can catch their breath, like IE metamorphosed into
firefox, then chrome! On a slight tangent, anyone know why FF4 is taking
so long to come out of beta? The beta's really nice, it just seems to
have been stuck there for months :/
