New browser called Rockmelt Coming up...
Good to see more but then we as web guy need to do lot more testing as well
How do they make money? I mean why would i make a good browser? How do they get fund for it??
Depends on the objective.
Donations or in long term some big company acquires it.
who donates? as normal people who use it never really donate as such....
Big corporates as well as many users.
And what do big corporates get out of funding a browser..?
Name and brand value
Eh? If I own a big company lets say XYZ, and i fund Firefox, how would it help my company? Just by funding a browser? Ok my name will be splashed on there site, but whats the point? I mean for a big company that kinda name wouldnt matter much...would it?
If it would not matter then we would not have seen so many ads all day in TV / Radio / Sites .......
You are not getting my point. Most of us use Firefox, how many of us know who funds it? Is the rato of people who know it, worth it?
We get ads on TV 'coz we know and see it on TV, but very few know who funds? So whats the idea?
Did you knew that Google was behind the promotion of Firefox ? They used to pay $$ for promoting Firefox
Have you ever think of making your own web browser ???
nope and thats my point, not many people know about these things...
no, not really. you?
Google probably dumped FF may be for this reason. It was promoting Non IE things
Why would they mind FF promoting Non IE things?
No its Google who was promoting FF which is non-ie
Yup, Thinking so, want to go ahead with ?
Cool we have our own toolbar, now we'll have our own browser....
Do not know much about RockMelt, but I’m certainly interested, mainly due to the little information I’ve heard about it... we'll just have to wait and see.
